Wednesday 12th & Thursday 13th July


International Conference on
Additive Manufacturing
& 3D Printing


Our conference is all about AM academic and industry experts getting together to share their knowledge and ideas. We provide the setting for both new and experienced users of AM to keep in touch and stay up to date with the latest developments in AM, to enhance commercial success and explore new avenues of research.   

Listen to both sides of the story: the successes and challenges of leading technology adopters giving a balanced view of the industry, cutting right through the hype.  

Find out about current state-of-the-art research, as each carefully selected speaker addresses different issues facing the evolving AM world.

The parallel exhibition features a select number of organisations whose technology, analysis, expertise and products continue to help drive development in Additive Manufacturing, 3D printing and wider manufacturing industries.

Come and strengthen your network in a relaxed environment, with all conference activities and accommodation under one roof.

Below is a list of the speakers for the 2017 event.
