The TCT Conference @ Formnext returns in-person to its usual home of Frankfurt on 16-19th November, with over 35 industry experts scheduled to present on the latest additive manufacturing adoption trends and developments.
Across four days, the conference Main Stage will feature talks on aerospace, healthcare, business and more led by leading AM users and research institutes such as Boeing, Siemens Technology and Fraunhofer.
From insights on transport by Deutsche Bahn to construction and sustainability with Mighty Buildings and Aectual, the TCT Conference @ Formnext promises to be an inspiring and educational experience for delegates across all industries and will provide a welcome opportunity to hear from and meet with high-level industry peers away from your laptop screen.
Complementing TCT’s Main Stage content will be the TCT Introducing Stage sponsored by HP which will provide a one stop shop for visitors to see the most exciting new technologies from across the show floor. After almost two years of virtual events, for many visitors, the Introducing Stage will offer a first look at the many AM technologies launched over the last year and with a range of dynamic sessions and speakers, attendees can quickly get up to speed without the sales pitch.
Take a look at just a selection of TCT Conference @ Formnext highlights from TCT’s Sam Davies, Laura Griffiths and Lu Tikrity.
