Co-located events

3D Printing LIVE! will be co-located alongside a series of highly-relevant and synergic tradeshows and conferences on Printed Electronics, Wearable Technologies and the Internet of Things. The speakers, attendees and exhibitors will all have access to all co-located events. Each of these events is a leading business-orientated event in its own right, attracting key players across the value chain from investors and end-users to component and material suppliers. These well-established events attract in excess of 2,500 attendees with 200 exhibitors expected.

What is 3D printing?

3D printing is the use of a machine to convert digital designs into real objects via the deposition of material. According to research by IDTechEx in the report 3D Printing 2014-2025: Technologies, Markets, Players, the market for 3D printing equipment, materials and software will grow from about $1.5 billion this year to $4 billion in 2025. IDTechEx has interviewed over 50 key suppliers on 3D Printing and met many more around the world. We will provide an impartial, realistic look at the opportunities as shown below
