Formnext Chicago 2025 Launch: Industrial AM Process chain at a glance

14 June 2024: With Formnext Chicago, Mesago Messe Frankfurt is bringing the successful Formnext trade fair concept to the USA, the world’s largest AM market. From 8-10 April 2025, Formnext Chicago will showcase the entire industrial process chain for Additive Manufacturing.

“We see huge potential in US companies that have not yet encountered Additive Manufacturing (AM) or are not utilizing the benefits of this technology,” explains Sascha F. Wenzler, Vice President Formnext. “Our focus is on the various user industries to which we want to provide solutions. This will further raise awareness of the opportunities offered by Additive Manufacturing across the industry.”

With Formnext Chicago, Mesago Messe Frankfurt is expanding its strategy of regionally adapted formats in relevant AM markets, based on the highly successful original Formnext event in Frankfurt. Examples to date include the Formnext + PM South China in Shenzhen, China, and the Formnext Forum Tokyo, Japan.

Formnext Chicago is being organized by Mesago Messe Frankfurt in collaboration with AMT (the Association for Manufacturing Technology) and Gardner Business Media. AMT is the organizer behind IMTS, the largest manufacturing trade fair in North America. Gardner Business Media is North America’s leading media company focused on machining, plastics processing and other manufacturing technologies.

“Formnext was early to recognize the significance of the US market for the AM industry and announced the 2025 Chicago event back in 2021. The AM community’s global growth is evidence of the high demand for the successful format. Other suppliers, such as Rapid + TCT, confirm our assessment of the potential of the local AM sector, but are now holding their event at the same time as Formnext Chicago,” says Douglas Woods, AMT President.

“We see Formnext Chicago as a great opportunity for US application industries because it covers the entire additive value chain from material suppliers, software and production systems, to post-processing and quality assurance. This clearly differentiates the new format from existing 3D Printing or rapid prototyping events in the US market.”

Formnext Chicago will take place on 8-10 April 2025 in Chicago, Illinois, USA.
