Registration Opens for Additive Manufacturing Workshop at NAIAS

The January 2019 workshop at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit covers the evolving role of 3D printing in automotive manufacturing.


Additive Manufacturing Media announces that registration is open for the Additive Manufacturing Workshop for Automotive. The event will be held alongside the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) at the Cobo Center in Detroit on January 16th. The half-day workshop will kick off NAIAS and include access to the exhibit hall.

The event will host suppliers and OEMs presenting in tandem, on how additive production technology is being used in automotive applications and what the future plans for expansion look like. The in-depth technical sessions will give attendees a real-time look at what the demands are for 3D printing in production.

“3D printing is set to play a major role in how cars are designed, produced and marketed,” says Dave Necessary, event director. “We are excited to be coming to Detroit. There is no bigger stage than NAIAS to showcase where additive production is and where it’s going.”
