Axis participates in several trade shows each year to create new partnerships to continue to showcase its expertise in the field of rapid prototyping. 2019 was no exception, so we participated in national and international trade shows to meet new people and discover new industry sectors.
- March 5 to 8, 2019: Global Industrie in Lyon
This exhibition is specialized in industrial subcontracting. Every even year this event takes place in Lyon, the odd years in Paris. Axis has been attending this event for several years with the ambition of meeting new partners but also to consolidate the links established with long-standing customers. For 2019 more than 1200 exhibitors were present for approximately 46,000 visitors over the 4 days of the exhibition.
- May 15-18, 2019: Metal Tech in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
This industry event has been in existence for over a decade. Axis participated with a long-time partner with a strong presence in the Asian market. Thanks to this exhibition, Axis was able to open up to a new market in which we were not very present and also to analyze the different skills that suppliers have in this part of the world. Metal Tech welcomed in 2019 1200 exhibitors for 20 000 visitors coming from 42 countries.
• June 4 to 6, 2019: 3D Print in Lyon
3D is the first French exhibition dedicated to 3D printing methods. As Axis is one of the oldest companies dedicated to rapid prototyping using 3D printing, it was normal for us to show our skills in the midst of 150 other players linked to French additive manufacturing. We were able to show our different technologies (stereolithography, powder sintering, vacuum casting) but also our finishing capabilities (metallization, priming, inserts, painting according to RAL or Pantone color chart…) Created in 2013, this show welcomed more than 6,000 visitors during the 2019 edition.
• September 30 to October 3, 2019: CMTS of Toronto, Canada
Dedicated to the aerospace and automotive industries, the CMTD has been held in Toronto every two years for over four decades. As Axis is often solicited in these two sectors, this committee allowed Axis to develop and become known in the North American market through its presence at this event.
• October 22 to 24, 2019: SIANE in Toulouse
Siane or Salon des Partenaires de l’Industrie celebrated its 16th edition in 2019. This annual event allows the meeting between customers and subcontractors, particularly located in the regions of the great west. The 2019 edition presented 740 exhibitors for nearly 10,000 visitors.
• November 19 to 22, 2019: Formnext in Frankfurt, Germany
Formnext is the world’s largest trade show dedicated to the 3D printing community. This event brings together all the players in the additive manufacturing process industry, from material suppliers to machine manufacturers and prototyping subcontractors. In 2019, 852 exhibitors were present for 35,000 visitors from all countries. Axis has been participating for several years in order to keep up to date with the latest news in 3D printing as well as to reach out to new potential customers.
• Fairs planned for the year 2020
For 2020, Axis wishes to continue to increase its number of partners in order to continue to perpetuate our company and our know-how. We will start on January 7, 2020 with the CES in Las Vegas, a trade show specializing in new technologies, thanks to the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region. We will then go to Midest from March 31 to April 3 in Paris for this 2020 edition, to the show, 3D Print from June 16 to 18 and we will finish with FormNext from November 10 to 13.
