About the event

 

The last ten years have seen steady growth in the production and use of 3D printers, but in the last twelve months, this cutting edge technology has exploded into the public consciousness.

 

3D printing is being utilised in nearly every industry around the world and over three days, this show will give you a glimpse into the possibilities that this incredible new technology holds.

 

Day one is trade day and will bring together exhibitors, trade and press. The day will be packed with workshops, demonstrations and a VIP  live show in the evening.

 

The show weekend will welcome over three and a half thousand public visitors, many experiencing 3D printing for the first time.

 

The 3D Printshow offers you the opportunity to join live demonstrations and seminars, participate in selected workshops and see this technology in action. You also have the option of buying products or printing your very own designs.

 

The first of its kind in the UK, the 3D print show promises to show you things that most people still regard as science fiction.

 

The consumer show is a ticketed event, with tickets being released to the public in June. It’s your chance to be part of something amazing.
