Recap of Inside 3DPrinting Conference and Expo

Earlier this month we had the pleasure of attending one of the première B2B trade shows for 3D Printing, Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo, in Chicago.

The event featured 2 full days of conference sessions, and exhibitors galore! The focus of this trade show was a bit different then what you might normally find. The focus was on Education, and how 3D Printing is revolutionizing this industry.

We had the opportunity to attend a few of the sessions and we were happy to see that the Education Tracks recognized the diversity of attendees: Additive Manufacturing Professionals, Educators, Engineers, Designers, Hobbyists and the General Public.

John Westrum, Afinia’s Vice President, noted “I was amazed at the attendance of the show. With varying backgrounds, needs and knowledge, it was easy to see that 3D printing really is ready for the broader audience.”

We also had some GREAT traffic to our booth, and at times it was overflowing with ‘Afiniacs’. We plan on attending and exhibiting at their fall show in San José September 17-18 and expect an even better turnout.

Here are a few photo highlights from the show:
