3Dnatives, the international online magazine about 3D printing, is hosting a 1-day virtual event on October 22 from 8AM to 5PM EDT, called ADDITIV digital World. Free for all attendees and exhibitors, the online event will present an opportunity for the professional Additive Manufacturing community to learn, share and connect!
Every year, key events in the sector are at the centre stage of big developments and advancements in additive manufacturing. Active players and users of 3D printing technologies come together to discover manufacturers’ latest solutions, and meet in person to exchange knowledge. Over the last few years, 3Dnatives has had the chance to attend and cover these important events, understanding their significance in uniting the additive manufacturing industry.
Following the postponement of almost all of these annual meetings, a new format emerged to fill the void. Virtual events have become the only way to bring the 3D printing industry together during the pandemic. Having organized 3 virtual events already, 3Dnatives believes these events hold tremendous potential for the future.
“I think it’s safe to say that there isn’t anyone who hasn’t been affected from this year’s unfortunate health crisis. Our community in the field of Additive Manufacturing of course is not immune to both the difficulties of doing business during such uncertain times, as well as maintaining a good level of communication with the rest of the industry. Having used the format of a virtual event a few times by now, it is amazing to see how efficient it can be,” comments Filippos Voulpiotis, Chief Business Officer of 3Dnatives. He continues “ADDITIV digital World will be gathering some of the best minds in the world of AM, and I truly cannot wait to hear from them as well as catch up with everyone in our wonderful community.”
6 Conferences, 5 Networking Sessions and 1 Afterwork Party
During ADDITIV digital World, visitors, just like exhibitors, will be able to move around trade show-like floors that will display exhibitors’ virtual booths. A back and forth between networking sessions and conferences aims to provide the right mix of knowledge exchange and business discussions. The conferences, which will follow the format of panel discussions, will bring the expertise of speakers from leading institutions and companies such as NASA, MIT, Ford Motor Company or Facebook to all. You can find all the details on the conferences and speaker lineup on the ADDITIV website.
3Dnatives is using a digital platform called Remo, which provides the virtual space to welcome the AM community. Thanks to its simple and intuitive user interface, registrants will be able to move from floor to floor to meet the exhibitors at their virtual stands. Private tables will also be available for 1-on-1 meetings.
“We are at a major inflection point in the adoption of additive manufacturing. I am excited to be joining a virtual panel of 3DP experts at ADDITIV digital World to discuss how AM is making its mark to solve engineering challenges — from localizing manufacturing, contributing to a more sustainable environment by reducing waste, and creating more efficient supply chains,” comments Jonah Myerberg, CTO and co-founder of Desktop Metal.
To conclude a full day, ADDITIV digital World will host a bit of fun. 3Dnatives is concluding the event with an afterwork party to network, chat and catch up in a more casual and relaxed setting! You can register to attend for FREE on the ADDITIV website.
