The Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG; Milwaukee, MI) has opened online registration for its 2018 Education & Training Conference, which will be held in St. Louis, MO, on April 8-12, 2018. The conference, now in its 30th year, is open to owners and operators of industrial additive manufacturing (3D printing) technologies used for professional purposes.
AMUG brings together engineers, designers, technicians, supervisors, plant managers, and educators from around the world to share expertise, best practices, challenges, and application developments in additive manufacturing.
The AMUG Conference will include technical sessions and hands-on workshops designed to help users get more from, and do more with, their systems. Through its Innovators Award, Technical Competition, and Awards Banquet, excellence in applying additive manufacturing and contributions to the industry will be recognized. The five-day event also includes the two-night AMUGexpo, networking receptions, and catered meals.
The conference agenda is expected to contain over 200 presentations and hands-on workshops. One highlight will be the fourth annual Innovators Showcase. The showcase is an on-stage interview, which has the feel of a fireside chat, where attendees get to know an innovator in the industry and discover insights from that individual's experiences. For 2018, the special guest will be Wilfried Vancraen, founder and CEO of Materialise, who has built a well-regarded additive manufacturing software and services company.
