Past event: Additive Manufacturing for U.S. Aerospace, Defense and Space Summit

The Premier Additive Manufacturing for Aerospace and Space

Europe's Premier AM Event Comes to the United States in June 2022

Additive Manufacturing, or 3D printing, is quickly becoming a staple component of advanced manufacturing capability across the aerospace, space and defense industrial base. With this in mind, we are holding our first annual Additive Manufacturing for U.S. Aerospace, Defense and Space Summit on June 14-15 in Orlando, Florida.

This senior and expert-led Summit will highlight the ongoing efforts to empower knowledge sharing and collaboration with those across the US military, government agencies such as NASA, prime contractors and leading space companies, tier 1 and tier 2 manufacturers, AM industry vendors and cybersecurity professionals. Ultimately, we plan to help build and clarify effective roadmaps for incorporating additive manufacturing and 3D printing processes into the supply chain, and to explore challenges and best practices for integration, certification and standardization.
For years we have continually brought together the top minds in the Additive Manufacturing sector at our European Additive Manufacturing Summit. After a successful European AM conference in Hamburg Germany February 2022, we are thrilled to expand this conference series into the United States market to focus on the unique needs of stakeholders across the Additive Manufacturing spectrum.

With keynote sessions from senior leaders, panels from topic experts and interactive discussion groups featuring industry innovators, this year's event is shaping up to be a groundbreaking conference with opportunities to share and learn.

Key Themes Include:

  • Certification and standardisation strategies delivering critical assurance for defence, space and aerospace applications
  • Space, air, land and sea applications for additive manufacturing processes
  • Training engineers and designers to 'think in additive manufacturing' terms to utilise AM's full potential
  • Innovation and new technologies developing additive manufacturing for defence, space & aerospace
  • Commercialisation of research and developing short-term additive manufacturing strategies
