The Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) has announced that online registration is now open for its 2023 AMUG Conference, which is scheduled to take place in Chicago, Illinois, USA, March 19–23. The event is open to owners and operators of industrial Additive Manufacturing technologies used for professional purposes.
The AMUG Conference is a gathering of Additive Manufacturing users, of all experience levels, that meet to provide and share valuable insights and experiences. Through dialogue from the stage and conversations during breaks, meals and networking activities, AM users share expertise, best practices, real-world results, challenges and application developments. With a programme that encourages participation from early in the morning to late at night, attendees can interact with their peers for over fifty hours over the five-day event.
“The AMUG conference is all about the users of Additive Manufacturing equipment,” stated Mark Abshire, AMUG president. “What makes it unique is that the users plan, organise, and manage all aspects of the conference, making it truly ‘For Users, By Users’.”
“Our conference fills education, training and networking gaps with experience and knowledge shared by users of a broad range of Additive Manufacturing technologies,” Abshire continued. “And while highly skilled users attend the conference, first-time attendees new to the technology are embraced, welcomed, and encouraged to engage in information exchange.“
The AMUG Conference will include keynotes, panel discussions, technical sessions and hands-on workshops designed to help users get more from, and do more with, their AM solutions. The conference agenda is expected to offer nearly 150 presentations and workshops. One highlight of the conference programme is expected to be the eighth annual Innovators Showcase, an on-stage interview with the feel of a fireside chat where attendees get to know an innovator in the industry and discover insights from that individual’s experiences. The conference programme also includes the AMUGexpo, which is expected to feature 140 participating companies.
Through AMUG’s Innovators Award, Technical Competition and DINO Awards, excellence in applying Additive Manufacturing, and contributions to the industry will be recognised. The five-day event also includes an off-site dinner, networking receptions and catered meals.
The early, all-inclusive conference registration fee is $1,295 when registering before January 6, 2023.
