In just a little over one week, 3DPrint.com and SmarTech Analysis will be holding our third annual Additive Manufacturing Strategies event. For the second year running, the summit will be taking place in Boston; the first AMS summit was held in Washington, DC in 2018. Titled “The Business of 3D Printing: Medicine, Dentistry and Metals,” AMS 2020 focuses on – you guessed it – 3D printing applications and business practices in the medical and dental fields, as well as industries that frequently use metal, such as aerospace. While the first two AMS events were also centered around medical and dental 3D printing, the metals track is a new one for the conference this year.
Over 60 expert speakers will be sharing their expertise with us at AMS 2020, focusing specifically on end-user experiences, regulatory perspectives, and the vendor and materials companies. Specific topics will include multilaser 3D printers, emerging trends for 3D printing in healthcare, 3D printed implants, hybrid metal and large-format 3D printers, 3D printing and modeling in surgical planning, the future of metals binder jetting, software and design for metal 3D printing, 3D printing in the aerospace and automotive sectors, materials for 3D printed dental applications, 3D bioprinting, and much more.
Members of both the 3DPrint.Com and SmarTech Analysis teams will be present over the two day event to meet with other attendees. In addition, Scott Dunham, the Vice President of Research for SmarTech Analysis, will offer forecasts on 3D printing in the medical and dental industries.
AMS 2020 will also feature a networking reception, fireside chats, and the Startup Competition. OsseoPrint 3D was the winner of last year’s competition, for its platform technology for implantable, 3D printed, patient-specific bone scaffolds, and received a $15,000 cash investment from early stage venture fund Asimov Ventures. At this year’s competition, seven different contestants will compete against each other at 6:05 pm on February 11th.
Attendees can also visit the exhibit hall at the summit and speak with representatives from many different companies, including:
- Additive Orthopaedics
- R&D Technologies
- Tethon 3D
Coffee sponsors for this year’s event are 3D printing consultancy Blueprint and VELO3D, while EOS is a Gold Sponsor and Global Advanced Metals is a Platinum Sponsor. Media sponsors include Women in 3D Printing, 3DMedNet, 3DHeals, Inside 3D Printing, and more.
For free entrance to the exhibit hall and the startup competition, you will need to register ahead of time. To gain full access to the entire event, and receive the final Early Bird discount, register by February 5th. AMS 2020 will be held at the Seaport World Trade Center from February 11-12. We hope to see you there!
