Additive manufacturing conference registration opens

19 October 2021

THE NEXT annual conference of AMUG (Additive Manufacturing Users Group) will be held in Chicago, USA, in April 2022.

Online registration is now open for the 2022 AMUG Conference, which is to held in Chicago, 3-7 April 2022. The AMUG Conference is a users’ event that is open to owners and operators of industrial additive manufacturing (AM) technologies used for professional purposes.

The AMUG Conference is a gathering of professional AM users, of all experience levels, who assemble and collaborate to share their insights and experiences. Through dialogue from the stage, and networking conversations, AM users share expertise, best practices, real-world results, challenges and application developments. With a programme that encourages participation from early in the morning to late at night, attendees can interact with their peers, as a group, for more than 50 hours over the five-day event.

Carl Dekker, AMUG president, said: “AMUG builds the programme for the conference, but our attendees make the experience unique and beneficial. On the surface, it may look like any other conference, and many first-time attendees expect that to be the case. But when they engage in conversations that dive deep with unvarnished truths, they have an ‘ah-ha’ moment that the AMUG Conference is on a completely different level. The depth of free-flowing information that is exchanged is what motivates individuals to return year after year.”

The AMUG Conference will include keynotes, panel discussions, technical sessions and hands-on workshops designed to help users get more from, and do more with, their AM solutions. AMUG is adjusting its 2022 conference programme to deliver more training and hands-on experiences. For example, workshops and training labs will offer engaging environments where the AM tools are the focal point.

The conference agenda is expected to offer nearly 150 presentations and hands-on workshops. One highlight will be the seventh annual Innovators Showcase. The showcase is an on-stage interview, where attendees get to know an innovator in the industry and discover insights from that individual’s experiences. The conference program also includes the AMUGexpo, which is expected to have over 140 participating companies, on Sunday, 3 April and Monday, 4 April.

Through AMUG’s Innovators Award, Technical Competition and DINO Awards, excellence in applying additive manufacturing and contributions to the industry will be recognised. The five-day event also includes an off-site dinner gathering, networking receptions and catered meals.

The advanced, all-inclusive conference registration fee is US $995.00 if attendees register before 7 January, 2022.
