Additive Manufacturing Strategies Propel the Future of Medical and Dental Businesses: Upcoming Summit Gathers the Experts

Share this Article

For as human-centric as healthcare is, business and technology are necessary components to successfully advance and make available solutions that can be of the most benefit to the population. Investment into education and training, as well as advanced technologies, underlie an important strategic component to the business of health in today’s world. Among the most important tools at a healthcare provider’s disposal are the Hippocratic Oath — and the tools themselves. As 3D printing technologies continue to advance and see new applications in medicine and dentistry, it becomes ever more important for the sharing of ideas to continue to progress.

To further the understanding of the technologies available today and in development for tomorrow, as well as the implications these advanced offerings may have on investment and business strategies, we are working closely with SmarTech Markets Publishing, a leading provider of industry analysis and market forecasts for the 3D printing/additive manufacturing industry, to present Additive Manufacturing Strategies, a two-day summit to be held at the Army and Navy Club in Washington, D.C. on January 22 and 23, 2018.

The event — The Future of 3D Printing in Medicine and Dentistry: A Business and Investment Summit — which we initially announced in September, has seen an expanding agenda filled with leading experts in medicine, dentistry, additive manufacturing, and investment. Addressing a variety of targeted topics from a broad cross-section of the industry, 36 highly informed speakers are prepared to share their knowledge.

Day One, January 22nd, will focus on 3D Printed Medical Devices. The morning’s keynote, from Lee Dockstader, Director of Vertical Market Development, HP Inc., will begin the informative sessions, followed by forecasts from SmarTech’s highly informed Vice President of Research, Scott Dunham, and a look into technical and regulatory considerations from Dr. Roger Narayan, Professor of Biomedical Engineering UNC/NC State and America Makes Fellow. The remainder of the day will consist of panel discussions bringing together informed speakers sharing their expertise in 3D printed implants, prosthetics, surgical planning, end-use hospital strategies, and the future of 3D printing in medical markets. Rounding out the day will be a cocktail reception, allowing for more personal conversations with gathered attendees and speakers.

Day Two, January 23rd, will look to Materials, Dental Markets, and the Investment Perspective. Beginning with a keynote from Katie Weimer, VP Medical Devices, 3D Systems, the day will feature a panel on biomedical materials, a look into the bioprinting market from SmarTech Senior Analyst Davide Sher, and additional panels discussing investment and venture capital perspectives as well as the future of 3D printing in dental markets.

With a broad range of topics to cover, and a variety of perspectives to share, the two-day agenda is formatted so attendees have access to all sessions as well as allowing for coffee and networking breaks to build on formal conversations.

The event’s focus on dental and medical applications for 3D printing, and the business environment surrounding them, marks another milestone in the additive manufacturing industry. 3D printing has become a serious business, indeed, and such agendas as that gathered for Additive Manufacturing Strategies treat it as such; there will be no hype here.

As January approaches, we are seeing anticipation rise ahead of the event — and we’d love to share the experience with you. While some of the deepest registration discounts have already seen deadlines pass, there’s still a chance to save 17% on costs now; early bird registration is still available for the full agenda at $995 for payments received by tomorrow, December 14th. On-site registration will rise to $1,195.
