It’s hard to believe it’s been five years since we went to the first Inside 3D Printing Conference in New York City. At the time, it was the first conference of its kind and covered all the aspects of the products, the services and business of 3D printing. Now, it’s even bigger and still remains a great reason to get out of the house, visit New York City and be gobsmacked with all that’s current and new in 3D printing.

This year at Inside 3D Printing New York, March 14-15 at the Javits Convention Center, they’ll have keynote addresses from the famed plastic surgeon, Dr. Oren Tapper, and Terry Wohlers, Principal Consultant at Wohlers Associates, will speak on “The Future of 3D Printing.” See the full agenda here.

They have the exhibit hall packed again with product and service companies, some you’ll know and some you’ll want to keep an eye on, including A-Team Ventures, Asimov Ventures, Aurora Labs, Chemcubed, Cimquest, DesignPoint, eSun, FlackTek, Flashforge, Formlabs, Igus, i.materialise, New Valence Robotics (NVBOTS), ProtoCAM, Recreus, Silver3D, Stardust, TechniPrint, Titan 3D, and Winrigo.

Once again they have The Frontier Tech Showdown, a must attend pitch event for seed-stage startups in 3D Printing, Virtual Reality and Robotics. Asimov Ventures will present this year’s winner with an uncapped SAFE for $15,000 following the event.
