3D printing for professionals


Over the past few years, the growing media coverage of additive manufacturing technologies has brought this sector into the public consciousness like never before. It’s seen as exciting, even revolutionary, but with a lot of media attention focused on abstract concepts or very niche usage, there needs to be a greater understanding of the real world applications that can change the world. Not just in the future, but right now.

We understand that the power of additive manufacturing is not just about the localization of production or the creation of spare parts. Its benefits are becoming more evident in mainstream production and we’re seeing more and more applications that feature complex, customized solutions which increase functionality, while reducing lead time and waste.

Our shows cover the entire ecosystem of advanced design and manufacturing technologies that, when combined, dramatically stimulate innovation and enhance the efficiency and profitability of OEMs:

  • Additive manufacturing / 3D printing technologies and services
  • Materials
  • CAD / CAE software
  • Scanning, digitizing, metrology and inspection equipment
  • Molding and tooling

Who should exhibit?Manufacturers / suppliers of:

  • Additive manufacturing / 3D printing technologies and services
  • Materials
  • CAD / CAE software
  • Scanning, digitizing, metrology and inspection equipment
  • Molding and tooling

Why exhibit?

  • Trade shows can stimulate technology- based industries in ways that no other media can match. They provide focus, deadlines and most importantly, bring everyone together in one place.
  • It’s so much easier to convince a potential client to visit a trade show and see all the options together.
  • There is no better way to find new leads.
  • By exhibiting, you will be part of the largest marketing campaign in the industry – introducing yourself to key buyers from across the key high-growth sectors.


When it comes to marketing, we know that a ‘one size fits all’ approach doesn’t work. We will run completely separate campaigns for each vertical sector – healthcare, aerospace and automotive – with targeted messaging.

Our campaign will include print and web advertising, inserts, emails, direct mail and social media – impossible to miss.

Our marketing team is one of the most experienced in the event industry, having won the IAEE’s ‘Best attendance promotion campaign’ award twice and the AEO’s ‘Marketing campaign of the year’ an unprecedented four times. But this isn’t about awards. It’s about delivering large, creative and effective campaigns that engage your existing clients and introduce you to new ones.


We understand that it’s not enough just to speak to people who are already convinced about the benefits of additive manufacturing. It’s not simply about choosing between different providers – it’s about being introduced to a completely different way of working, finding inspiration in new ideas and looking for practical solutions to everyday challenges.

For this reason, our trade shows have conferences running alongside them, with separate streams for the healthcare, aerospace and automotive sectors. We work with experts in the industry to ensure a balance of content, both to attract new audiences and to engage those already in the industry.

California is ranked #1 in the United States for manufacturing output and is at the center of international biotech developments. The Los Angeles area itself is a major hub for aerospace manufacturing. This, combined with its longstanding reputation as a home of global technology pioneers makes it an obvious choice of venue.

The Pasadena Convention Center is a modern venue located within easy reach of downtown Los Angeles, Bob Hope Airport and Los Angeles International Airport.



Amsterdam is a progressive, modern and cosmopolitan city that is quickly becoming known as a leading technology center in Europe. The Netherlands has been an early adopter in additive manufacturing and is one of the most successful markets for 3D printing.

RAI Amsterdam is one of the most popular exhibition venues in Europe and is located within minutes of Schiphol Airport and the city center. Amsterdam is easy to reach by air, rail or road from almost any European city.
