About Additive International

2022 - ADDITIVE INTERNATIONAL 2022 - Returning live in 2022

The Event

The Additive International summit, formerly known as the International Conference on Additive Manufacturing & 3D Printing, is a two-day event, bringing together academic and industry experts to share their knowledge and ideas. The summit attracts over 250 delegates from more than 170 institutions, with interests in all the newest technological developments for the AM industry.

The value of face-to-face interaction will never go away, but the AM industry, along with the rest of the world, has realised the value of virtual events. Therefore, in the short-term, the Additive International team are also organising virtual half-day meetings as part of our "Spotlight Event" series, with the aim of bringing to our delegates the latest cutting-edge developments in the AM world, without leaving their place of work.
