NY3DP Summits Update—The Latest on Our Debut, 3D Printing-Centric, Big-Tent Event in Late September

Come Join In: 3DP-Related Sessions, Sponsors, Speakers, Mini-Expos, Tours & Innovative High-Times from 19 September to 4 October

Last week we continued to develop the content of our first-time NY3DP event. That is “NY3DP Summits”—a multi-day series of 3D-Printing / Additive Manufacturing “summits” that we’re organizing to help fulfill one of our NYC3DP missions.

That ambitious “big-tent” mission—really our core passion—is to coalesce the entire spectrum of 3DP-interested people, players and organizations in New York City and State. We’re out to assist in building an inter-connected 3DP Community. From there, we hope to help foster a 3D-Printing industrial-segment “Cluster” based in Metro-NYC.

That Cluster concept is this: an integrated, 3DP ecosystem of successful commerce and commonweal betterment for our City and State. Think: the existing—and world-dominant—job-generating Clusters of New York City, e.g., Media, Fashion, Finance, etc.

Our City is already home of two of the most innovative—and segment-commanding—companies in worldwide 3DP. These are MakerBot of Brooklyn and Shapeways of Manhattan & Queens.

Thus, we have a head-start on the other competitive players on the planet in this disruptive 3D-Printing industry. New York: Come (3DP) Cluster. (Hey, another of our organizational mantras…)

So, here’s our latest listing of goings-on at our “NY3DP Summits.” We’re hustling to continue building our event’s richness and value for you. Come on back to get your “NY3DP Summits” updates here on this site.


“NY3DP Summits” Sessions—An Agenda For Mutual Connection & Education

At NY3DP Summits, we will air views, concepts and projections as well as hard-won facts from those on the ground who are making 3DP happen right now. In most cases, NY3DP Summits will present one roundtable-style event per day that will focus on a major 3DP topic. Some of these roundtables will also include ancillary mini-expos and tours.
