CATEGORY: Fairs and Events BRAND: Formnext

The clock is ticking down until the start of Formnext Forum Tokyo, with less than one month remaining before it opens its doors from 27 – 28 September 2022 at the Tokyo Metropolitan Industrial Trade Center, HAMAMATSUCHO-KAN.

As a leading business platform for additive manufacturing (AM) technology, the event combines product showcases with special seminars covering AM technology across various Japanese user industries. Gradually expanding in scale since its launch in 2019, the previous edition welcomed 29 exhibitors and 710 visitors, and this upward development will continue in 2022, with 65 exhibitors taking part alongside a combination of onsite and online seminars before and after the event.


A wide variety of special seminars and industrial forums

Eight 'special seminars' will not only provide relevant industry knowledge, but also offer ample business and networking opportunities. All seminars are free, and some are open for pre-registration via the official website.


Some highlights include:


  • Metal AM technology trends & promotion of domestically produced MEX metal, Mr Hideki Kyogoku, Dr. Eng Professor Kindai University
  • 3D food printing technology as a means to solve social problems, Mr Hidemitsu Furukawa, Professor, Faculty of Engineering, Graduate school of Science and Engineering, Yamagata University


An industrial forum sponsored by TÜV SÜD Japan Ltd., the Japanese Society of Additive Manufacturing / Kansai 3D Project, and the Japan 3D printing Industrial Technology Association is also on the agenda. Focusing on both technical advances and business opportunities, the forum will cover a wide range of topics relevant not only to Japan but also to overseas players.


Pre-event: online seminar on 9 September

To provide additional exposure, a promotional online event will take place in the lead up to this year’s Formnext Forum Tokyo, providing highlights on what to expect onsite as well as information on overseas exhibitors. A special online-only seminar will also be held.


To ensure a safe business environment for participants, the organiser, Messe Frankfurt Japan Ltd, will put all of the appropriate safety and hygiene measures in place to protect participants during the duration of the fair, and to prevent the spread of the COVID-19.


Held annually, Formnext Forum Tokyo attracts the entire spectrum of AM stakeholders. The forum covers an array of advanced technology and all of the upstream and downstream AM processes and equipment, including materials, powder metallurgy, design, software, and post-processing technologies.
