Additive Manufacturing Conference breaks records


The 2018 Additive Manufacturing Conference broke the attendance record for the event. The continued growth reflects the expansion of additive technology into production.

AMC18 spanned two days at IMTS, North America’s largest machining technology trade show. The event attracted more than 650 attendees, featured 24 speakers from additive manufacturing service bureaus, OEMS, research labs, and more. Presentations from HP, GE, and Siemens highlighted a program that focused on the next level of 3D printing adoption for part production.

Conference organizers announced that, next year, Additive Manufacturing Media will host programs at three major trade shows across the country: The North American International Automotive Show in Detroit, Amerimold in Chicago, and CAMX in Anaheim.

The 2019 Additive Manufacturing Conference will be August 27-29 in Austin, Texas. The three-day event will feature technical sessions, facility tours, networking opportunities and an expanded exhibit floor to accommodate the growing interest in additive technology.
