9th - 11th July, 2019


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.

In addition to Additive International, we host a pre-summit event which takes place the day prior to the official opening of the main summit. This years pre-summit event is called Future Additive Manufacturing and will bring to delegates the latest updates from ongoing large-scale UK-funded Additive Manufacturing R&D initiatives. This can be booked alongside the main event, or separately.
