The city that never sleeps may just be on the verge of becoming the 3D printing capital of the world. This week, MecklerMedia launched their much anticipated 3D Print Week NY event, bringing companies and individuals from all around the globe to the Big Apple in what has be building up to be one of, if not the, largest 3D printing events in history.
The city-wide event, which launched Monday, April 13th with SOLS Martini Monday includes individual events being held by various companies within New York City, as well as MecklerMedia’s own Inside 3D Printing Conference and Expo, and their 3D Print Design and Fashion Shows which are taking place at the Javits Convention Center in Manhattan. As a co-producer of these MecklerMedia events, 3DPrint.com had a feeling that this year’s show would not only be one of the company’s largest 3D printing events ever, but that it could potentially become the world’s largest event moving forward.
Today, MecklerMedia’s CEO, Alan Meckler confirmed this.
“As of an hour ago (10:00 AM ET), [we’ve had] 11,100 pre-registered guests, with 53 countries represented [and] 44 U.S. states — Largest pure 3D printing show in terms of attendance worldwide.”
With all eyes on 3D printing this week, thanks to the Inside 3D Printing Conference as well as the 3D Print Design Show and 3D Print Fashion Show by MecklerMedia which officially kick off tomorrow morning, it is no surprise that most of the 3D printing stocks have been trading up considerably today. At the time this article was written, shares of Stratasys (NASDAQ:SSYS) were trading up an astounding 6.29%, while 3D Systems (NYSE: DDD) was up 6.06%, and Materialise (NASDAQ:MTLS) was trading up 2%. All three companies happen to have a huge presence at this year’s event, and the world seems to be taking notice. Coincidence? Probably not!
With over 11,000 people who have pre-registered for the MecklerMedia events, this will certainly be one heck of a show, one which we at 3DPrint.com are excited to be a part of. It’s not too late to get tickets for the any of these shows, but hurry up because they are going fast.
