3D printing hotspot wows again

Almost 4,500 visitors came along to the 16th edition of Rapid.Tech 3D in Erfurt to hear all about the latest developments and applications in additive manufacturing

Once again, Erfurt has proved itself the hotspot of 3D printing. And not just because the 16th Rapid.Tech 3D took place on the hottest days of the summer so far. Almost 4,500 visitors, 180 exhibitors and over 100 speakers at the Rapid.Tech specialist conference and the 3D Printing Conference gave the event the thumbs up as an unmissable opportunity for application-centred exchange on current capabilities and future developments in additive manufacturing (AM). “First-rate talks, appealing stands and special exhibition areas in the foyer are the foundation

on which we keep developing the oldest congress exhibition of its kind in Germany. This year, we held the first forum dedicated to education and training and got a fantastic response that confirmed demand in this field. That’s where we need to focus – if additive manufacturing is to continue making progress, we are going to need well-trained experts. The process needs to start at school,” says Michael Eichmann, who together with Prof. Dr. Gerd Witt is advisory board chairman for Rapid.Tech 3D.
