Formnext Forum Tokyo confirms September return; exhibitor applications now open

16 Jan 2024

With a combined exhibition and seminar format, the event specialising in additive manufacturing (AM) technology and related products and services, will take place from 26 – 27 September 2024 at the Tokyo Metropolitan Industrial Trade Center HAMAMATSUCHO-KAN. Known as a sister event of Formnext in Germany, the Tokyo event features a range of topical seminars and showcases covering a variety of AM products and services along with the next generation of intelligent industrial production solutions. Now in its 4th edition, the annual event will provide exhibitors, visitors and conference attendees with the latest industry knowledge and offer ample business and networking opportunities.

As AM technology rapidly advances, innovation, and improved idea implementation are becoming critical for harnessing its full potential. September’s event is set to support this through a lineup of ‘special seminars’ featuring prominent speakers  from both domestic and international spheres, alongside ‘exhibitor presentations’ where companies will showcase their latest products and services. In 2024, 1,500 visitors are expected to attend the two-day event.

Exhibitor Mr Lois De Jesus, Sales Director APAC & India of TEKNA, commented; “With its sharp focus on AM-related technologies and manufacturing, Formnext Forum Tokyo allows us to meet our ideal target visitors. We’ve conducted several business meetings and are sure to establish new business relationships with a number of them.”

First time participants were equally pleased with the results of their attendance. Mr Hiroshi Murayama, Manager, AM Sales Group, JEOL Ltd., shared his experience: “Most of the visitors here already have extensive knowledge about 3D printing technologies, therefore, it’s easy to communicate the benefits of our products to them. We are confident that attending this event will take our business to the next level. We will continue to exhibit here.”
