The 2018 edition of the Additive Manufacturing Conference broke the attendance record for the event, with more than 650 attendees. The previous record had been set in 2017 and the continued growth reflects the overall expansion of additive technology into production.
AMC18 spanned 2 days at IMTS, North America’s largest machining technology trade show. The event 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 held 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.
Presented by Gardner Business Media’s Additive Manufacturing Magazine and Modern Machine Shop, the Additive Manufacturing Conference is technical conference, exposition and business networking event focused on the industrial applications of additive technologies for making functional components and end-use production parts.
