Industry Relevance

Fakuma has been running every year for almost forty years. The first edition was held back in 1981 and since then, the trade fair has seen a constant increase in its programming and the turnout in terms of exhibitors and visitors. Another fun fact to the show’s success is its location in the city of Friedrichshafen, which stands in the border triangle Switzerland, Austria, Germany. This gives potential visitors further mobility to come from many different countries. We have to talk about the product range. Fakuma is at the forefront in innovations across the full value chain. You can expect to see displays and demonstrations of molding machines, plastic processing machines, plastics, presses, processing machines, recycling, thermal shaping technology, excipients, blow molding machines, C-technologies and extrusion plants to name a few.

Who Are You Going to Meet?

As with many other international trade fairs, the host country determines the dominant nationality that’s going to be present. For Fakuma, this means the majority of exhibitors and visitors are from Germany. In numbers, this is 29,543 national trade visitors to only 18,107 visitors outside the Germany. Major representation comes from nearby countries and mostly restricted to members of the European Union. You have 126 countries represented so you can expect to meet with clients and experts from Asian markets like China, India and Japan along with North America.
