The official start of summer is Monday, June 20, and kicking off the summer conference schedule is Inside 3D Printing Seoul, which is coming up fast. Taking place from June 22-24, the huge 3D printing showcase will be returning to South Korea for the third time – but it won’t be alone. The Korea International Exhibition Center (KINTEX) will also host RoboUniverse for the second time, as well as welcoming the Virtual Reality Summit for its first South Korean visit.
“Following successful previous events, we are excited to return to Seoul this year to bring together Inside 3D Printing, RoboUniverse, and the Virtual Reality Summit for the first time in Korea,” said Matthew Finlay, CEO & Founder of Rising Media. “By combining these events, we aim to offer visitors the opportunity to take part in the next frontier of innovation, exploring technologies that are leading the charge in shaping the way we work, learn, and live.”
The triad of conferences is shaping up to be pretty big, with over 80 sponsors and exhibitors scheduled to take part. Notable sponsors include platinum sponsors MakerBot, Unity Technologies, and YS-Thermtech Co, Ltd.; gold sponsors FXGear and MarkAny; and silver sponsor HanilProTech. A couple of months ago, Rising Media released details on keynote speakers and vertical tracks for the events, but the agenda has continued to grow, with the full program including 28 3D printing sessions, 22 robotics sessions, and 18 virtual reality sessions.
Topics will focus on business applications for 3D printing, robotics and virtual reality in a wide range of industries including manufacturing, entertainment, metals, medicine, AI, drones, marketing and advertising. Inside 3D Printing will also feature a new 3D Print Design Show featuring work such as furniture, glasses, shoes, accessories and more from 20 artists and designers.
The expo is only two weeks away, so register now, because prices go up onsite. A pass to Inside 3D Printing also gets you access to the RoboUniverse and Virtual Reality Summit exhibition halls, and vice versa.
Speaking of registration, it’s never too soon to start planning for the next conference. Inside 3D Printing, RoboUniverse, and the Virtual Reality Summit will be debuting in San Diego from December 14-15, rebranded as the Frontier Tech Forum and featuring concurrent conference sessions and a combined exhibition hall showcasing all three “frontier technology” sectors. Registration is now open, with super early bird pricing ($600 less than passes purchased onsite) available until September 16. You can also take advantage of an additional discount by registering online (for both Seoul and San Diego) and entering the code 3DPRINT at checkout.
Inside 3D Printing San Diego is currently looking for speakers for the December event; if you’re interested in sharing your expertise, you can apply here before July 1. Speakers will receive free admission. Additional details about San Diego will be coming before long, so stay tuned to 3DPrint.com for the latest updates!
