APICAM2019 will be the second iteration of the Asia-Pacific International Conference on Additive Manufacturing (APICAM). The 2017 conference was the first conference of this kind to be held in the Asia-Pacific region, and it will continue the trend of providing a forum for industry professionals and thinkers to come together to share knowledge, network and formulate solutions to the challenges of today and tomorrow.

Attendees will benefit from discussion delivered by the leading minds in the industry and will be able to use the knowledge gained to improve the way they engage with the industry they work in.

Critical areas such as 3D printing and additive manufacturing in the automotive, biomedical, defence and aerospace industries will be covered by experts from each respective field.

The event is being curated by Materials Australia, the peak Australian materials technology body, who have drawn on their considerable pull in the industry to create a world-class event that is a must-attend for anyone involved in the additive materials industry.

The main features of APICAM 2019 will include presentations by experts as well as workshops that will help attendees to sharpen their skills and pass on this knowledge to other industry professionals. The event has been designed to allow for ample networking time so that important knowledge-transfer can take place and partnerships can be created that will enrich the industry.
