Formnext Connect 2020 also provides an opportunity for the global start-up community to present itself and engage with users or potential investors. Digital visitors can expect a host of fascinating panel discussions on a range of topics from the AM world. There will also be a number of sessions targeted at specific groups as well as roundtable discussions, which may also be organized and offered by exhibitors.
