Generic “industry” conferences usually are boring. They are interesting only for those directly linked to the particular subject being discussed and even for them it is mostly an obligation to stay up to date, rather than passion and personal interest. The best thing about the 3D printing industry is that conferences on Additive Manufacturing (AM) are anything but boring in my experience or that of the people I speak to at them.
They invariably bring together speakers who are at the forefront of the technology, who talk about how the AM / 3D printing revolution is going to change every and any industry sector, how it is going to cut costs by up to 90%, how it will make the impossible possible and how it will help make the World a better place by delocalizing production and reducing pollution and waste.
