The Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) has opened registration for its 2019 Education & Training Conference, to be held in Chicago, Illinois, March 31–April 4, 2019. The AMUG Conference is open to owners and operators of industrial Additive Manufacturing technologies, and aims to bring together engineers, designers, technicians, supervisors, plant managers and educators from around the world to share expertise, best practices, challenges and application developments in AM.

Now in its 31st year, AMUG stated that it is adjusting its 2019 conference program to deliver more training and hands-on experiences. Paul Bates, AMUG president, stated, “As the AM community evolves, so will AMUG. We are excited to present the new programme with the goal of continuing to act on our mission of educating and advancing the uses and applications of additive manufacturing technologies.”

The AMUG Conference 2019 will include technical sessions and hands-on workshops designed to help users take full advantage of AM technology. As part of this greater focus on training, the group has also introduced a new Training Lab, which it stated will offer an engaging training environment where tools for AM are the focal point of discussions.

The conference agenda is expected to contain more than 150 presentations and hands-on workshops, as well as the fifth annual Innovators Showcase. The showcase takes the form of an on-stage interview where attendees will have the opportunity to get to know an innovator in the industry and discover insights from their experiences. For 2019, the special guest will be Professor Gideon Levy, consultant for Technology Turn Around.

Throughout the conference, AMUG’s Innovators Award, Technical Competition and DINO Awards will be announced, recognising successful appliations of Additive Manufacturing and contributions to the industry as a whole. The five-day event also includes the two-night AMUGexpo, a number of networking receptions and catered meals.

Further information and details on how to register are available via the conference website.
