Women in 3D Printing has announced the industry’s first all-female agenda of additive manufacturing speakers at the inaugural edition of its TIPE 3D Printing conference, scheduled to take place virtually on 27-28 January 2021.
The TIPE 3D Printing conference will feature over forty presentations from additive manufacturing industry experts in their fields, including leaders from Boeing, Ford, Cummins, HP, Xerox, Carbon, EOS, US Army, RMIT, University Federal de São Paulo, LEO Lane, Wikifactory, STEMConnector, AM-Cubed, MakeLab, Additive Integrity, and America Makes.
The conference will highlight four primary tracks: Technology, Industry, People, Economics, and will offer a different look at the industry than that of many of the other events already on the 3D printing calendar. The focus here is on case studies and, especially, building relationships, not selling machines or materials - ‘We are not a trade show,’ the organisers emphasised.
The event has attracted five Platinum sponsors: TRUMPF, MatterHackers, HP, Dassault Systèmes and GE Additive, whose support, the organisers said, ‘stands as strong testament to the mission of TIPE 3D Printing, and the actionable resources the event will provide to the additive manufacturing industry’.
The wholly virtual event is being oragised by Women in 3D Printing. A nonprofit organisation dedicated to promoting and supporting women working in the additive manufacturing industry, it is a community that has grown from a simple blog to one of the largest Additive Manufacturing communities worldwide, with over 60 chapters in 23 countries.
TIPE 2021 is the kick-off for a new annual event that will be located in a different city around the world each year. The event will debut in Denver.
