This year’s TCT Show, taking place in Birmingham, UK, September 26-28, will once again incorporate a ‘Start Up Zone’, introducing the latest and most promising start-ups to enter the industry. With exhibitors from the UK, France, Germany, Spain and the USA, organisers have stated that the Start Up Zone will be a truly global platform for dynamic new businesses to unveil their innovations to the 3D Printing market.
This Start Up Zone offers the opportunity for young businesses to exhibit beside industry giants such as Stratasys, 3D Systems, HP, GE Additive and Renishaw. Here, visitors will see launches of software, components, hardware and materials from the newest members of 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing world including 3D Visualization, Metal Technics 3D, ADMG and Proto-pasta.
Start Up Zone exhibitors will have the opportunity to present short presentations about their products or services during the ‘Start Up Pitches’ session on the Tech Stage, Tuesday September 26th. A judging panel will assess each presentation in turn and vote for the best new technology presented at the show.
“The Start Up Zone is a key part of our mission to accelerate the adoption of 3D technologies for design, development and manufacture across all industry sectors. Without the introduction of new perspectives, the 3D technology industry would miss out on the very innovation that drives us forward,” stated Holly Delaney, TCT Show Visitor Marketing Manager. “We are proud to be in a position to provide a platform for these exciting start-ups to present their ideas and receive the attention they deserve.”
Exhibition space in this area is reserved for new companies with limited revenue and a promising idea. Because of this, the Start Up Zone, Start Up Pitches and Start Up Award is said to form a unique ecosystem for the promotion and celebration of the cutting-edge. Visitors across all the three days of TCT Show will have the opportunity to see the ‘next big thing’ before it hits the mainstream.
