AMUG brings together engineers, designers, 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 Technical Competition and Awards Banquet, excellence in applying additive manufacturing and contributions to the industry will be recognised. The five-day event also includes the two-night AMUGexpo, networking receptions, student poster session and catered meals.

Mark Barfoot, AMUG President, stated, “We are quite excited to be building an agenda that continues to deliver a wealth of hands-on experiences and extremely practical sessions where users gain real insight into techniques or tips that they can take back to the office and start using right away.”

The conference agenda is expected to contain over 200 presentations and hands-on workshops. “To fit it all in, we are condensing our general sessions on two of the four conference days to allow for more concurrent sessions, which means more content and more choice for our attendees,” added Barfoot.

“The keynotes, presentations, panel discussions and workshops will keep attendees very busy. But we will still offer plenty of time for networking. That is the one thing that most differentiates the AMUG Conference from all others so we always strive to build the event such that attendees have ample opportunity to meet, converse and share,” stated Barfoot.
