A new technology is changing the industry world-wide: Additive manufacturing is a forward-looking technology which offers companies breakthrough opportunities.

Enterprise Europe Network partner Hessen Trade & Invest GmbH is welcoming companies from additive manufacturing and industry 4.0 from Nouvelle-Aquitaine in Hessen to discover the world of additive manufacturing during the world-leading fair formnext and during company visits at Hessian companies.

Target of the event is to establish contacts between French and Hessian companies, to facilitate the market entrance in Hessen, to provide information on the Hessian market as well as on the additive manufacturing and industry 4.0 landscape in Hessen. The event will take place in the framework of the official partnership of Hessen with the Nouvelle-Aquitaine.

The programme of the company mission starts on 13 November with an official evening reception of the Land Hessen for the French companies in Wiesbaden. The companies from the French partner region Nouvelle-Aquitaine can get in touch with institutional representatives as well as with companies from Hessen.

On 14 November, the delegation from Nouvelle-Aquitaine will visit the fair formnext - International exhibition and conference on the next generation of manufacturing technologies - in Frankfurt am Main. It brings together exhibitors from the additive manufacturing and more conventional industrial production technologies with the international manufacturing itself.

The French companies will be offered pre-arranged meetings with Hessian companies at the Hessian joint stand as well as with other Hessian exhibitors (on demand).

Besides the pre-arranged Hessian-French meetings at the booths, the delegation from the Nouvelle-Aquitaine will participate in the formnext brokerage event that the Enterprise Europe Network Hessen (Hessen Trade & Invest GmbH) is offering at formnext. This is a unique opportunity to generate business contacts, to gain market knowledge and to discover new technologies in the world of additive manufacturing and intelligent manufacturing solutions.
