Organized by 3Dprint.com and AM Research, Additive Manufacturing Strategies (AMS) features keynote presentations and panel discussions surrounding growth, deployment and investment strategies in industrial AM.
To help the industry prepare for the 2024 edition, we asked Michael Molitch-Hou, Editor-in-Chief of 3DPrint.com, to share the highlights of their 2023 event and what will make their event worthy to be attended in 2024.
3DA: How would you summarize the highlights of the 2023 edition of your event?
AMS 2023 was a kismet gathering of industry executives, investors and thought leaders. Bringing together such experts into a contained environment led to myriad priceless interactions and connections forged, and laid groundwork for investments and M&A. The international touchpoint that New York City offers enhanced this thrust.
3DA: Can you tease one exciting new feature or aspect that attendees can look forward to in the 2024 edition?
We are very excited about the increased “finance/investment” programming that will feature at AMS 2024. Each year this aspect is given more attention in the AMS program. Highlights include a live and expanded version of the popular podcast “Printing Money”, a CEO roundtable including Cantor Fitzgerald, Stratasys, Desktop Metal and Velo3D, and a special seminar from The Barnes Global Advisers, “The Economics of Additive”.
3DA: What advice would you give to future participants (visitors and/or exhibitors)?
To visitors, check out the speakers and sponsoring companies. Once your registration is confirmed, you may write to us at email@example.com with your wishlist and we will arrange pre-event matchmaking so you can set up valuable meetings in advance. Also, be sure to stick around for the final day. We have included some extremely valuable programming to ensure a full house throughout the conference.
To exhibitors, just bring your networking hat, don’t bring your super large printer! AMS does not offer classic exhibitor “booths”, but rather “dedicated networking areas”. We encourage sponsors to reserve out a “home base” so attendees always know where to find and meet with them, but not to deck out their spaces with normal booth paraphernalia. The conference is about forging business connections, not about displaying huge machinery.
The seventh annual Additive Manufacturing Strategies (AMS 2024) will be held from February 6 to 8, 2024 in New York.
