The conference, now in its 26th year, is open to owners and operators of all additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, technologies.

We are very excited to have three well-known, well-respected keynote speakers to kick off our daily activities,” said Bret Bordner, AMUG president. “Each of these speakers has interesting, insightful information to share, and each presents in an engaging way that will energize attendees for the day to come."

Todd Grimm, president of T A Grimm & Associates and AMUG's AM industry advisor, will open the event with an “enthusiastically realistic” look at the 3D printing industry, while Jason Lopes of Legacy Effects will open day two with a backstage look at 3D printing’s role in feature films and commercials. Dr Mike North, founder of North Design Labs, starts the final day of the conference with a talk on 3D printing, technology and innovation.

The AMUG conference will also include technical sessions and hands-on workshops designed to help users get more from their systems.

AMUG has released a call for speakers here.
