For the past two years, I’ve been attending various Inside 3D Printing Conferences, held around the world by MecklerMedia. Each and every show I attend seems to be a little bigger, and a little more interesting than the last. This was capped off by the company’s last all-encompassing event in New York, called 3D Print Week New York. The full week of 3D printing events, headlined by the Inside 3D Printing Conference and Expo, was a blast to attend as we got to witness all of the year’s latest, greatest innovations within the space.
The NY event was so successful, that MecklerMedia has decided to hold a similar all-encompassing 3D Print Week California this coming October 19-23 in Santa Clara, California. And like previous MecklerMedia shows, this coming one is building up to be the best one yet. Not only will some of the largest and well known companies from the 3D printing industry be on hand showing off their latest, greatest technology, but this year’s show will include something we haven’t seen in previous shows — the 3D Print Vehicle Zone, thanks to a special grant that they have received.
“Inside 3D Printing has received a grant to allow companies in the 3D printing automotive field to display their designs at no cost,” MecklerMedia tells 3DPrint.com. “The 3D Print Vehicle Zone is a two-day exhibition on October 21-22, where organizations creating products or parts for any type of vehicle will display the latest 3D printed concept vehicles and equipment.”
Whether you are a fan of automotive technology, looking to see the future of automobiles, or if you simply love technology and 3D printing in general, the 3D Print Vehicle Zone will surely peak your interest. Over the past couple of years, we’ve begun to see several 3D printed car designs come to fruition from companies like Local Motors and Divergent Microfactories, and this upcoming show is a tremendous way for these companies to show their creations to the world, in a way that is subsidized by a grant.
Regardless of the companies who show up, the 3D Print Vehicle Zone is building up to be quite the attraction. I know it will be one of my main focuses while attending the upcoming show. While it will be one of the main attractions, it’s not the only new attraction to the show. In fact, there will also be the all new Virtual Reality Summit which will bring together companies and individuals from the Virtual Reality space on October 21st.
“The Virtual Reality Summit at Inside 3D Printing brings together a group of hand-picked speakers and exhibitors representing the continuum of VR applications and innovation – the investment and business development paradigms, platform technologies, software, applications, content development ecosystems, and markets,” MecklerMedia tells us.
