The SmarTech Analyst Conference will take place at the Embassy Suites in Waltham, Massachusetts on September 27, 2018.  The conference, which is being run by SmarTech Publishing, a leading industry analysis firm in the additive manufacturing space, will consist of a full day of presentations, Q&A sessions and opportunities for engagement with both the SmarTech analysts themselves and other attendees.  Throughout the conference, SmarTech analysts will be discussing their latest forecasts and trend analyses for additive manufacturing/3D printing.

According to Lawrence Gasman, President of SmarTech, the conference is attracting considerable interest not only from SmarTech’s existing client base, but also from major 3D printer companies, materials firms and (current and future) 3D printer users. Gasman further states that attendees at the conference will gain significant new insights into the future of 3D printing/additive manufacturing through the day-long presentations of SmarTech’s market forecasts and trend projections. His hope is that throughout the day, participant questions will drive this event.

Topics covered by the conference will include the rapidly developing areas of metal printing and new materials for 3D printing as well as the relatively mature area of polymer printing.  Attendees will also hear SmarTech’s take on 3D printing trends in several important market verticals including medical and dental 3DP (an area where SmarTech also runs an annual conference – see Additive Manufacturing Strategies), as well as additive manufacturing in the aerospace, automotive and the oil & gas industries. Each of these verticals has its own dynamic – in aerospace AM is already widely used, for example, while in automotive, AM is at the beginning of the adoption curve. In addition, the analysts will take a look at the growing business potential for AM service bureaus.

Presenters will include Gasman himself; Scott Dunham, VP of Research; and Davide Sher, Senior Analyst, Europe.  Each of the speakers will provide their take on where AM can establish a firm competitive advantage over traditional manufacturing methods — which parts will be printed and why.  Attendees will also receive guidance from the SmarTech analysts on how 3D printing will continue to disrupt supply chains throughout the world economy

At the end of the day, there will be a concluding panel where Gasman, Dunham and Sher will analyze the future opportunities in 3D printing/AM worldwide and the ways in which these opportunities will be shaped by traditional parts suppliers, materials firms and AM equipment suppliers in the future of the AM service bureau business.
