No matter how serious or trivial, everyone, at some point in their life, has been or will be impacted by the medical and dental industries – which in turn have been impacted by 3D printing technology. 3D printed medication and dentures can be customized for specific patients, and 3D printed medical models give surgeons the chance to master operations before they enter the operating room, which means less patient risk. 3D printed implants can be less costly and even prevent paralysis, and 3D printed human tissue reduces animal testing and helps new drugs get to market faster. There’s also work being done to create 3D printed organs one day for transplant, which would obviously be of great benefit to the world.
While CES 2018 continues until tomorrow in Las Vegas, during the busy 3D printing conference season we have to keep looking to what’s coming next. Later this month, experts in the field of medical and dental 3D printing will descend on Washington D.C., to learn and share knowledge with the attendees of our Additive Manufacturing Strategies summit, which will be held from January 22-23 at the Army and Navy Club. If you haven’t registered yet, you still have a chance to save $100 off the on-site price.
3DPrint.com is working very closely with SmarTech Markets Publishing, a leading provider of industry analysis and market forecasts for the 3D printing/additive manufacturing industry, to organize and present the event, which is titled The Future of 3D Printing in Medicine and Dentistry: A Business and Investment Summit. In September we initially announced the new summit, which will offer attendees a chance to better understand today’s technologies, as well as the ones currently in development, and the impacts these offerings could have on investment and business strategies.
Lawrence Gasman, President of SmarTech Publishing, told 3DPrint.com, “The use of 3D printing for everything from implants to medical modeling will be one of the fastest growing parts of the 3D printing Industry. This Summit, is the only conference that is focused on where the money will be made in 3D-printed medicine and where the hot markets can be found.”
It’s more important than ever now to share ideas as 3D printing technology keeps advancing and opening up new applications in the dentistry and medical industries. The agenda has been growing rapidly since the autumn, and many top experts in medicine, dentistry, additive manufacturing, and investment will be speaking at the summit on a variety of targeted topics, from the business, medical, legal, and technological perspectives. Don’t worry about missing anything or having to pick and choose between sessions – the conference is formatted so attendees will have a chance to access all of the sessions, along with taking needed coffee and networking breaks.
After registration and a continental breakfast, Gasman will welcome everyone to the conference on the first day, which will focus on 3D Printed Medical Devices; he will be followed by the morning’s keynote speaker, Lee Dockstader, Director of Vertical Market Development, HP Inc. Keynote speaker Katie Weimer, VP Medical Devices, 3D Systems, will get things started on the second day, which is centered around Materials, Dental Markets, and the Investment Perspective. The full agenda is available here.According to SmarTech, sectors like 3D printed prosthetics, dental devices, implants, personalized medication, and medical models will generate over $5 billion in revenue by the year 2021, so you won’t want to miss this great opportunity to discuss the use of 3D printing technology in the dental and medical fields. While the biggest registration discounts are gone, but if you still haven’t registered yet and are interested in attending, you’re in luck – this Monday, January 15th is the final cut-off date to receive a discount of $100 off the on-site registration price, which is $1,195…that’s a savings of 8.5%. We hope to see you at our Additive Manufacturing Strategies Summit, held on January 22 and 23.
