ADDIT3D, the leading trade fair for the additive manufacturing sector in Spain, will be held from 6 to 8 June 2023 in the framework of +INDUSTRY. The most innovative industrial solutions in additive manufacturing and 3D printing will take center stage during the three-day event due to be held for the seventh time, from 6 to 8 June 2023 at the Bilbao Exhibition Centre.
ADDIT3D will combine an exhibition and product presentation area with a conference section, making it a space for analyzing technologies and markets, information, exploring opportunities and international promotion. Thus, through an extensive program of technical conferences, called Additive Talks, representatives of leading companies will share their own experiences and discuss the sector’s trending topics.
The ADDIT3D exhibition area will be divided between companies focused on systems and machinery for additive manufacturing and 3D printing technologies; industrial applications of additive manufacturing; raw materials for additive manufacturing; consumables; 3D printing services; additive manufacturing software; 3D scanners and scanning services; research and development on additive technology; complementary services for the sector; and education and training, professional associations and publications.
They will all be able to take part in the 20th European Industrial Subcontracting Meeting, a B2B program, one session which will be attended by buyers from the additive sector. The meeting is organized by the Barcelona Chamber of Commerce together with CámaraBilbao and Bilbao Exhibition Centre in collaboration with the Spanish Chambers of Commerce.
The growth recorded by ADDIT3D since its launch in 2016 is a good reflection of how important additive manufacturing and 3D printing are becoming as part of Advanced Industry. Recent studies reveal that the turnover of additive manufacturing machines produced in Spain in 2021 was 38.9 million euros; export of these machines was 60% and that of parts produced was 8%, with employment generated being estimated at more than 800 people.
ADDIT3D will be held as part of +INDUSTRY, one of the largest gatherings for advanced manufacturing in Spain, where the industrial supplies and hardware sector will also have its own exhibition space. These are fairs that are held simultaneously at BEC’s halls: the aforementioned ADDIT3D, as well as BeDIGITAL, Transforming Industry; MAINTENANCE, the International Industrial Trade Fair for Industrial Maintenance; PUMPS&VALVES, the Trade Show for Pump and Valve Systems and Equipment for Industrial Processing; and SUBCONTRATACIÓN, the International Exhibition of Manufacturing Processes and Equipment. It will be a very dynamic space, focused on technology and innovation, where smart manufacturing exhibitors and visitors will find areas to connect, share experiences and knowledge and boost their business.
