Additive Manufacturing Trade Mission to France, Germany and Poland

Meet with qualified partners, gain exposure in Europe, and attend Formnext all as part of an Official US Dept. of Commerce Trade Mission.

The European Union (EU) is a leader in additive manufacturing (AM) and a driver of standards and innovative technologies. The Trade Mission will take you to three European markets to directly connect your company with potential customers/partners, discuss standards and policy, and participate in Europe’s largest AM industry trade show, Formnext. The European AM market is experiencing 15-20% annual growth. EU firms are highly interested in American AM products.
