The Prototyping fair is a connection platform bringing together everyone in the prototyping industry, including both creative and manufacturing activities. It is a sharply focused practical trade event for everyone involved in product development, prototyping and low-volume manufacturing. It is a platform for all the players in the prototyping value chain, from the initial idea to low-volume production, and this is what makes it different from other trade events. The first edition in 2015 was an immediate hit and welcomed an impressive 2,259 visitors. A very promising start!
