Later this year, from 28 – 29 September, Tokyo will host Formnext Forum Tokyo 2023 – Japan’s most AM-focussed event, at the Tokyo Metropolitan Industrial Trade Center HAMAMATSUCHO-KAN. The 2022 edition of Formnext Forum Tokyo hosted 65 exhibitors, and 1,180 visitors – a 40% increase from the previous edition. On the back of this rise, Messe Frankfurt Japan is optimistic about another productive event this year – for which exhibitor registration is now open.

Launched in 2019 with a clear focus on AM technology and the related process chain from design to the finished product, including industrial 3D printing, the event has quickly gained a reputation for attracting leading specialists.

“The last edition made one thing clear: for manufacturing professionals, it’s crucial to have an event dedicated exclusively to additive manufacturing, particularly post-covid when many companies are re-evaluating their production processes and supply chains,” said Mr. Yasushi Kajiwara, Managing Director of Messe Frankfurt Japan Ltd. “As the only stand-alone event for AM technology in Japan, Formnext Forum Tokyo attracts a higher caliber of participants each year, with exhibitors, in particular, noting the quality of visitors. We look forward to another successful event in Tokyo later this year.”

With rising material costs impacting the manufacturing industry, globally, 3D printing’s cost-effectiveness for small production runs can unlock potential for manufacturers across a wide variety of industry sectors. Japan continues to be well positioned to benefit from this – thanks to the scale of its advanced manufacturing in the automotive, aviation, healthcare, and construction industries, to name just a few.

Organizer seminars, exhibitor presentations, and other fringe events are held on both days of the event – offering new insights into processing technology and 3D printing. The 2023 Forum will see experts converge from a wide range of industry sectors, including solutions for additive manufacturing; materials; manufacturing preparation/pre-processing; component processing/surface processing solution/post-processing; contract manufacturing/design/product development; tool and die making; software; quality management/measurement; certification and standards; research and development; and organizations and publishing companies.

Formnext Forum Tokyo is organized by Messe Frankfurt Japan Ltd and forms part of a series of international events that includes Asiamold, Guangzhou, China (1 – 3 March 2023); Formnext Forum Austin, Texas, United States (28 – 30 August 2023); Formnext + PM South China, Shenzhen, China (29 – 31 August 2023); and Formnext, Frankfurt, Germany (7 – 10 November 2023).
