The pre-eminent, in-person conference for additive manufacturing returns to Messe Frankfurt this November for four days of questions, answers and connections.

Featuring opportunities to connect with delegates, speakers and sponsors face-to-face, the TCT Conference @ Formnext delivers not only the cutting-edge of research, innovation and technology implementation but also the serendipity of live events.

Combined with access to the Formnext tradeshow — the largest gathering of AM tech and expertise on the planet — the TCT Conference @ Formnext continues to be a must-attend event for anyone using or planning to use 3d printing or additive manufacturing in their projects and organisations.


Want to discover new solutions? The Introducing Stage is your opportunity to see the best technology from across the show floor, with dynamic sessions so you can learn without the sales pitch.

With such a diverse exhibitor profile at Formnext, this is the perfect way to view a cross-section of the highlights on display.


Investigate new materials and processes, and gain insight into business ecosystems and standardization. Find out how 3D printing can benefit supply chains and provide a more sustainable way of manufacturing.


Make connections with industry peers and experts who are making transformational progress in the AM arena. Have meaningful conversations with delegates from a range of backgrounds and find future collaborators.


Interact with speakers and conference moderators with profound AM knowledge. Revisit presentations through post-conference proceedings and investigate the challenges faced by 3D printing practitioners.


Examine cutting-edge case studies and research from internationally recognized institutions and academics. Explore the latest AM and 3D printing breakthroughs across aerospace, automotive, and healthcare sectors.
