AM Users Group announces conference location
The Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) has announced that its 28th annual users group conference will be located in St. Louis, MO, from April 3 – 7, 2016.
The five-day event will be held at the St. Louis Union Station, a National Historic Landmark that was built in 1894.
AMUG selected St. Louis because it is centrally located and it is home to a venue that can accommodate the anticipated growth in attendance. Attendees will be welcomed by a completely renovated facility that retains the grandeur of the golden age of rail travel.
Mark Barfoot, AMUG president, said, “Our event is designed to educate users and advance their use of additive manufacturing. We do that by creating an environment where users share information to show others how to achieve success.”
The AMUG Conference draws both novice and expert users seeking insights, assistance and guidance on technologies, applications and processes. The conference also attracts support, in the form of sponsorships, from leading companies in the additive manufacturing industry.
The AMUG Conference will include technical sessions and hands-on workshops designed to help users get more from their systems.
Through technical competitions and the annual Awards Banquet, excellence in applying additive manufacturing and contributions to the industry will be recognized. The five-day event also includes the two-night AMUGexpo, networking receptions and catered meals.
The users group conference, now in its 28th year, is open to owners and operators of all additive manufacturing (3D printing) technologies. The advanced, all-inclusive conference registration fee is US$795.00.
