experiences and thoughts during the

Innovators Showcase

The Innovators Showcase is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, April 6, 2016, and will involve a casual, relaxed interview with Crump. He will respond to questions asked by the showcase host and conference attendees with the intent of getting to know the man behind the technology and gaining guidance from his decades of experience in building and leading an innovative company in the Additive Manufacturing industry.

Mark Barfoot, AMUG president, stated, “We are very pleased that Scott Crump has agreed to participate in the Innovators Showcase. The decision to invite him was unanimous and immediate because of the impact that he has had on the industry, both through the technology he created and his personal contributions.”

Scott Crump co-founded Stratasys with his wife, Lisa Crump, in 1988. He is the company’s Chief Innovation Officer, a Director on its board and Chairman of the executive committee. Previously, he has held the roles of CEO, Chairman, and Treasurer. Prior to creating Stratasys, Scott Crump was co-founder and Vice President of Sales of IDEA, Inc., a premier-brand manufacturer of load and pressure transducers, which was purchased by Vishay Technologies, Inc.

Barfoot added, “While the Innovators Showcase will be a highlight of the four-day AMUG Conference, we are building a can’t-be-missed agenda packed with informative keynotes, presentations and workshops.”

Designed for both novice and experienced Additive Manufacturing users, the conference agenda topics range from technology basics to advanced applications to business considerations. Although the agenda is still in development, AMUG anticipates having nearly 200 presentations, workshops and hands-on training sessions, and micro user group sessions provided by Diamond and Platinum Sponsors.

The AMUG conference will also feature its annual Technical Competition with awards for exemplary applications of Additive Manufacturing and superior part finishing. The competition provides a forum for users of additive manufacturing technologies to display their prowess with the technology.
