It always seems to be “conference season” in the 3D printing world – things never really seem to slow down when it comes to conferences, expos, and symposiums. Things are particularly busy at the moment, however, especially regarding the Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo series. Just yesterday, Inside 3D Printing in São Paulo, Brazil wrapped up after two days packed with speakers, exhibitors, forums and more, and now it’s already time to look towards the next installation, scheduled for June 27-29 in Seoul, South Korea.
There is a split focus at this year’s event; heavy attention will be placed on manufacturing and biomedical applications for the first day, followed by a focus on business, transportation and metal 3D printing. Topics addressed by speakers will include 3D printed electronics, bioprinted tissue, digital dentistry, neurosurgical applications, retail trends and much more.
Keynotes will be:
- Augmented Manufacturing, given by Avi Reichental, Founder, Chairman and CEO of XponentialWorks
- Unlocking the $12T Manufacturing Industry with 3D Printing, given by Alex Lalumiere, Director at HP
- 3D Printing and Industry 4.0, given by Byoung-Bag Lee, Senior Vice President of Sindoh
- Printing the Future, given by Terry Wohlers, Principal Consultant and President of Wohlers Associates
- A New Horizon in Additive Manufacturing, given by Maurizio Costabeber, Owner of DWS
- Ushering in a World of Advanced Manufacturing, given by Michelle Baek, Director of Asia Sales at 3D Systems
There will also be two keynote panels. The first is titled “Can 3D printing become a game changer?” and will feature contributions from Hon Yi, Maurizio Costabeber, Amit Dror, Alex Lalumiere, and Avi Reichental. The second is titled “The Future of Metal AM,” and will feature Mohsen Seifi, Maryna Ienina, CK Kan, Peter Rogers and Terry Wohlers.
