Registration opens for Advanced Manufacturing Technology Conference 2021

June 8, 2021

A conference taking place during the third Munich Technology Conference in 20219 (MTC/AMTC)

Registration has opened for the Advanced Manufacturing Technology Conference (AMTC), formerly the Munich Technology Conference (MTC), which is scheduled to take place as a hybrid event in Aachen, Germany, on October 12–14, 2021.

Organised by Oerlikon in cooperation with RWTH Aachen University and the Technical University of Munich, the conference aims to bring together representatives from industry, academia, political organisations and the media to discuss, debate and share ways to promote the advancement of Additive Manufacturing across industries.

As the conference will take place as a hybrid, attendees who can’t be present in person will be able to participate virtually via the AMTC 2021 conference platform. Limited on-site attendance feasibility is expected to be confirmed in July. All presentations will be streamed and virtual attendees will have the opportunity to actively participate in workshops, networking sessions and interactive panel discussions. In addition, an event for startups will open the conference on the first evening.

The theme of the conference is Momentum for Growth which aims to highlight successes and challenges and seeks to promote knowledge sharing amongst attendees. Speakers will include manufacturing executives, including Oerlikon chairman Prof Michael Süss and Achim Peltz of Siemens AG, as well as scientific leaders, engineers, educators, including Prof Johannes Henrich Schleifenbaum of RWTH Aachen, AM machine manufacturers and politicians.

The preliminary programme can be accessed via the event website.

An early-bird registration discount is available until August 7, 2021.
