The Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) has opened online registration for its 2023 AMUG Conference, to take place in Chicago, March 19-23, 2023. The AMUG Conference is a users’ event open to owners and operators of industrial additive manufacturing technologies used for professional purposes.
The AMUG Conference gathers users of all experience levels to provide and share valuable insights and experiences to help one another, according to event organizers.
“The AMUG conference is all about the users of additive manufacturing equipment,” says Mark Abshire, AMUG president. “What makes it unique is that the users plan, organize and manage all aspects of the conference, making it truly ‘For Users, By Users’.”
Additive manufacturing users share expertise, best practices, real-world results, challenges and application developments through dialogue from the stage and conversations during breaks, meals and networking activities. With a program that encourages participation from early in the morning to late at night, attendees can interact with their peers for more than 50 hours over the 5-day event, according to AMUG.
For those that attend, participating in all aspects of the conference is key to having a successful experience and being part of the AMUG community, notes Abshire.
“Our conference fills education, training and networking gaps with experience and knowledge shared by users of a broad range of additive manufacturing technologies,” says Abshire. “And while highly skilled users attend the conference, first-time attendees new to the technology are embraced, welcomed and encouraged to engage in information exchange.“
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 additive manufacturing solutions. The conference agenda is expected to offer nearly 150 presentations and workshops.
One conference highlight is anticipated to be the eighth annual Innovators Showcase. The showcase is an on-stage interview similar to a fireside chat 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, with over 140 participating companies, on Sunday, March 19 and Monday, March 20.
Through AMUG’s Innovators Award, Technical Competition and DINO Awards, excellence in applying additive manufacturing and contributions to the industry will be recognized. The event also includes an Off-Site Dinner gathering, networking receptions and catered meals.
The advanced, all-inclusive conference registration fee is $1,295 when signing up by January 6, 2023. For details and registration access, click here. Companies interested in participating as exhibitors or sponsors may also use online registration.
