AMS 2021, the most focused conference on business intelligence for the additive
manufacturing industry, will be back for its fourth year on February 9 through February
2021. It be an online event and we will be adding a day of discussion on software and
automation for additive manufacturing and a day of discussion on bioprinting to our
coverage: metals/new materials and medical/dental. As always, our objective for the AMS
is that participants will come away highly knowledgeable on the very
latest trends in additive manufacturing and full of innovative ideas that they can take
to their organizations.
For AMS 2021 we anticipate 60+ expert speakers in an online environment optimized for
attendees and speakers to exchange experiences and conduct business. AMS live events
always been noted as an extraordinary business networking experience and we plan that
will also be the same in our online version.
Each day will open with a presentation by a SmarTech analyst of our forecasts of the
of the day. SmarTech is the most highly regarded market forecast firm in the AM space
maintains a constantly updated database of ten-year AM forecasts covering printers,
materials, and services with highly granular breakouts in each sector.
In addition, AMS 2021 will host an online Exhibition Hall where attendees will be able
see the latest 3D printing products for metals, medical and dental, and biomaterials as
as the emerging automation products and software developments. As always throughout AMS,
attendees will learn the most effective procedures and business opportunities in the
critical sectors of additive materials on which AMS 2020 is focused. Exhibit/sponsor

PRE-CONFERENCE: February 8
DAY ONE: February 9
METALS AND NEW MATERIALS
Day One of AMS 2021will be 3D printing of metals and other “strong materials.” We will
also be looking at how compact metals printers have evolved since the 2019 AMS, as well
as user cases from the aerospace, automotive, oil & gas and other industry sectors.
DAY TWO: February 10
AUTOMATION, RAPID MANUFACTURING AND SOFTWARE
Day Two of AMS 2021 represents a new direction for AMS. We will focus on how a new
generation of AM will become part of the factory-of-the-future boosting throughput,
controlling quality, reducing cost and speeding time to market. We will also hear how AM
is transforming from being a batch process to a continuous process better fit for a
volume production setting.
DAY THREE: February 11
Since our previous AMS event, the COVID-19 pandemic has dominated the headlines and 3D
printing has played an important role in ameliorating it. At Day Three of AMS, attendees
will hear about what happened and what it means for additive manufacturing as a whole.
Also featured will be panels on the latest trends on using 3D printing in the medical
and dental space more generally, with an update on how 3D printing is disrupting supply
chains and transforming procedures at hospitals, labs, medical and dental offices.
DAY FOUR: February 12
The conference will conclude with discussions about the growing opportunities in
bioprinting, which has taken giant steps forward since our previous AMS. In Day Four we
will examine the latest trends in both bioprinters and printable biomaterials including
coverage of novel materials just hitting the market and the emergence of desktop
bioprinters. Day Four also provides coverage of the latest bioprinting applications
including what the possibilities for vascularization offer.
