3D printing events for 2019

Our 3D Printing Events guide is already filling up for 2019.

Following a year of materials, hardware, and design software developments for additive manufacturing, the beginning of 2019 brings a variety of 3D printing events. 

Here we highlight some of the forthcoming additive manufacturing conferences and expos, as well as the annual 3D Printing Industry Awards this summer. 

Furthermore, if you’re looking to promote your additive manufacturing event, simply add it to the 3D Printing Industry Events Calendar.

The 2019 3D Printing Industry Awards

On the 6th of June, the 3rd edition of the annual 3D Printing Industry Awards will once again bring together and celebrate major figures in additive manufacturing from around the world.

Located at Regent Park’s Nuffield Hall in central London, the awards will continue to recognize businesses and 3D printing experts who have made significant contributions within the industry. Find out more about the winners for 2018 here.

Readers are invited to make nominations within the various categories detailed on our public voting system. The deadline for nominations is March 1st, 2019.

The 3D Printing Electronics Conference, 5th edition

This month, industry professionals, investors, designers, and avid electronics consumers, are encouraged to attend the 5th edition of the 3D Printing Electronics Conference at the High Tech Campus, in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. The one-day event, which takes place on January 22nd, aims to highlight the growing capabilities of functional elections within 3D printed products.

Experts from the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials (IFAM), Nano Dimension, Mitsubishi Engineering Plastics, Institute of Systems and Robotics (ISR), and more will also be sharing their thoughts on the impact and potential applications for 3D printing embedded electronics.

The BIG IDEAS for UV+EB Technology Conference

Moving on to the month of March, innovators worldwide will gather at the BIG IDEAS for UV+EB Technology Conference from the 19th to the 20th, at the Crowne Plaza in Redondo Beach, California.

As its name states, this event focuses on big ideas involving 3D printing, UV LED technology, automation, as well as data-driven materials processes. The conference also offers the industry a forum to discuss the future of such technologies.

Kyle Baldwin, a Senior Research Chemist at Macdermid, a U.S. Chemical manufacturing company, will commence the conference with an additive manufacturing-themed talk entitled “UV Curable Elastomer Development for High-Performance Dynamic Applications.”
