The trade fair has also been a success for us, for which we wish to warmly thank our clients, says Managing Director Petri Järvinen of Cron-Tek Oy.

– The event has had a great atmosphere and an abundance of visitors. It is great that Finland has seen the first event in the field, and now we get to spread the joy of 3D here. What has been especially good here is the spirit of community, the feeling of doing this together, states Department Manager Tero Hämeenaho of Etteplan, chair of the steering group of Finnish Additive Manufacturing Ecosystem FAME.

– The trade fair has been excellent! We have been visited by people in this sector who were looking for special expertise.
