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

The Premier Additive Manufacturing for Aerospace and Space

Our Premier AM Event Returns to the United States in June 2023

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 annual Additive Manufacturing for U.S. Aerospace, Defense and Space Summit on June 13-14 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.

Join us and you will benefit from:

  • An update on US domestic Additive market and its role in boosting defense, aerospace and space supply chains    Hearing about new applications and opportunities for Additive Manufacturing, such as hypersonic and space craft
  • Hearing how best to protect your products and projects from cyber-attacks from additive focused cybersecurity experts
This year's event will be an important conference for all those working in this maturing and key sector. Join us this summer by registering now!
