Organisers report success of Inside 3D Printing Mumbai 2017

January 11, 2018

The third 3D Printing Mumbai event was held at Nehru Centre, Mumbai, India, December 1-2, 2017. Organised by CNT Expositions and Services LLP, the conference and exposition saw more than 1900 trade visitors in attendance. This event was the first to include a specialised metal Additive Manufacturing track as part of the conference schedule, reflecting the technology’s growth in India.

While its Mumbai setting made the show easily accessible to local application industries such as automotive, heavy engineering and tooling, organisers report that a large number of visitors travelled from across India to understand the impact of AM on their respective businesses. Aditya Chandavarkar, Partner at CNT, stated, “Additive Manufacturing is getting a lot of traction in India and many companies are working on moving into functional part manufacturing using Additive Manufacturing compared to only prototyping.”

The organisers provided a number of opportunities for businesses to network and form valuable connections during the conference, including dedicated pavilions, roundtable seminars and more. For the first time, the exhibition featured a Materials Pavilion, providing a dedicated space for key businesses in the materials supply chain.

The conference schedule opened with a double keynote from Autodesk and HP. Further sessions focused on the use of and opportunities for AM in the manufacturing and medical markets, with representatives from key metal AM companies and OEMs speaking in the metal AM track.

Dilip Raghavan, Partner at CNT, added, “Our aim at CNT with the successful established Inside 3D Printing Mumbai event and our other neutral knowledge sharing platforms is to provide a conducive environment for 3D printing technology to proliferate and grow in India.”

Following the success of Inside 3D Printing Mumbai 2017, CNT announced that the next edition will again take place at the Nehru Centre from December 19-20, 2018.
