The French capital's premier trade show for additive manufacturing, 3D Print will open its doors on October 19th-20th at the Palais des Congrès in Paris. The second edition of the Paris show promises a rich conference program and some 130 exhibiting companies.
After a successful first event which brought together around 3,000 visitors last year, additive manufacturing trade show 3D Print Paris is returning for its 2022 edition. Taking place at Paris’ Palais de Congrès on October 19th-20th, organizer Idice aims to attract visitors with a comprehensive conference program on the latest additive manufacturing trends and a range of innovations and workshops from the 130 exhibitors including Xerox, large format 3D printing solutions specialist Massivit, 3D printer, software and materials developer Markforged, software provider for 3D CAD data conversion Coretechnologie and optical equipment supplier Optoprim.
Exhibitors will offer live demonstrations of their latest technologies in a bid to address issues including an increasingly complex supply chain, reshoring production and data digitalization, among others.
