It’s hard to believe it’s almost May already. The weather’s getting warmer, schools are starting to prepare for final exams, our favorite TV shows are approaching their season finales (probably with agonizing and infuriating cliffhangers to torture us over the summer), and many people are marking their calendars for summer festivals and trips. If you work in or are a fan of the 3D printing industry, your calendars may be filling up fast, because it’s conference season. Inside 3D Printing Paris 2016 is only a month away, and Rising Media, Inc. has just released details of what looks to be a fantastic expo.
This year marks the first time Inside 3D Printing has held an event in Paris, and the conference will take place from May 24-26 at Les Docks de Paris. I3DP will be partnering with leading robotics summit Innorobo, which will be holding its own conference concurrently. The two expos, together, are shaping up to create a whopper of an event, with 200 exhibitors from over 35 countries and a projected 100,000 attendees over the course of the three days.
Inside 3D Printing has several prominent members of the 3D printing industry lined up to deliver keynote speeches, including:
- John Hornick, Partner at intellecutal property law firm Finnegan, Henderson, Farabow, Garrett & Dunner, LLP
- Michael Petch, founder of Black Dog Consulting and author of 3D Printing: Rise of the Third Industrial Revolution
- Ian Gibson, Professor of Industrial Design, School of Engineering, Deakin University
This year’s conference is going to focus on a wide variety of 3D printing and additive manufacturing applications in the fields of medicine and surgery, the toy industry, aerospace, food, manufacturing and more. Session topics will include:
- 3D Printing Surgical Implants
- Consumer Segment in 3D Printing
- How 3D Printing Will Affect the Toys Industry
- 3D Printing Will Rock the World
- Design For 3D Printing: Making Things Different
You can check out the full agenda (as of right now) here. While European industry will be a focal point, sessions and talks will cover 3D printing trends from around the world, with the program taking place in both French and English.
