The first edition of the new Formnext + PM South China fair will now occur in 2021, the organisers announced today. Due to be held in September this year in Shenzhen, the event was to bring a brand-new experience to China’s manufacturing industry through the expertise of the Formnext, Frankfurt and PM China, Shanghai fairs.
Speaking on the reasons behind the decision, Mr Hubert Duh, Chairman of Guangzhou Guangya Messe Frankfurt Co Ltd, explained: “The concept of the fair we had presented to our stakeholders emphasised it as a platform for the latest products and technologies for the entire additive manufacturing and powder metallurgy industries, and for multiple end uses. In our debut edition we wanted to have this full picture presented, however after consulting with our exhibitors, supporting associations and other partners, due to various complications arising from the coronavirus pandemic we came to the conclusion that this concept couldn’t be realised adequately in 2020.”
Mr Duh continued: “In particular, there is ongoing uncertainty over entry into China for foreign participants which is making it difficult for our overseas stakeholders to plan ahead. What’s more, many companies in the industry will likely only just have resumed normal operations around September, which makes decision making about participating in trade fairs for that time challenging. We felt, therefore, it was in everyone’s best interests to focus on ensuring the full participation of the industry in 2021 instead.”
Mr Zhu Xiao Feng, General Manager of co-organiser Uniris Exhibition Shanghai Co Ltd added: “It is unfortunate that we cannot hold the debut edition of Formnext + PM South China this year, but in the end the decision was unavoidable. China, as the centre of the global supply chain and boasting one of the most diverse manufacturing sectors, has seen steady growth in manufacturing demand which will further deepen the importance of additive manufacturing and powder metallurgy technology in the Chinese market. As the fair focuses on both the AM and PM industries, its location in Shenzhen given the rapid development of the city’s hi-tech industries, and the participation of the leading Chinese and international brands due to the cooperation between Uniris and Messe Frankfurt, we are highly confident the fair will be a great success in 2021.”
An announcement on the dates for the 2021 edition will be made in due course. The fair will take place at the brand-new Shenzhen World Exhibition and Convention Center.
Formnext + PM South China will cover an array of advanced technology, equipment and products under the categories of materials, powder metallurgy, additive manufacturing, design, software and processing technologies. The fair is jointly organised by Uniris Exhibition Shanghai Co Ltd and Guangzhou Guangya Messe Frankfurt Co Ltd and forms a part of a series of international events including:
