A Review of Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo in Singapore

(3DPrintingInsider) Columnist Rachel Park provides an up close, “not-so-short review” of her trip to Singapore and her coverage of Mediabistro’s Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo in Singapore last week.

Park covered the event from “Dr. Alan Meckler’s opening speech to the closings.” Park commented that Asia is playing catch up to the West in its understanding and adoption of 3D printing technologies. “Commentators and vendors know it, and so did the majority of the people attending the event from the Asia Pacific region when we spoke to them. Incidentally, 18 countries were represented at the show. But, the excitement and anticipation and the full-on eagerness to learn more is as strong as any I have ever seen, maybe more so.”

“The line up of speakers was a very clever, well-tailored blend of world leaders in the 3D printing world and local experts that had understanding and experience of 3D printing and its current place in the Asia Pacific region.”

The entire article is a “must read” for 3DP professionals and is concluded with this thought: “To sum up, excitement truly was the order of the day(s) — it was palpable and that is what I will take away from this event – the vibrancy of the Asian market, condensed into the Singapore region. I had been told Singapore was a good place to start in Asia – it really was.”
