NMW 2016 co-located with world’s largest 3D printing event

National Manufacturing Week 2016 (NMW) will be co-located with MecklerMedia’s Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo.

Inside 3D Printing is the largest professional 3D printing and additive manufacturing event worldwide, giving industry a first-hand look at how 3D printing is revolutionising industries including manufacturing, medicine, architecture, aerospace, and more.

Christoph Rowen, Managing Director Asia-Pacific for MecklerMedia commented that the co-location is based on a natural fit between NMW and Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo.

He described NMW's Additive Manufacturing Zone – which showcases processes for building up components – as the logical 'home' for Inside 3D Printing exhibitors, while Inside 3D Printing conference delegates will see added value in the opportunity NMW.

John Gorton, Executive Director of NMW organiser, Reed Exhibitions Australia said, "Inside 3D Printing is a world-leading event for a game-changing area of technology.  As it evolves, 3D printing technology is transforming almost every major industry: especially manufacturing, where it is already beginning to disrupt existing processes and open up exciting new opportunities for industry."

"By co-locating with the Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo, NMW 2016 will give visitors a broader, deeper access to the technologies, strategies and opportunities associated with additive manufacturing."

NMW 2016 and Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo are scheduled for May 11-13 2016 at the Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park,
