Fabbaloo will be hosting a day of virtual interviews to touch base directly with 3D printing companies and catch up on their latest.

Spring usually means plenty of face-to-face time with the 3D printing industry. Obviously things are rather different for 2020, to put it lightly, and that face time simply isn’t possible. But we still want to talk to you!

3D Printing Interviews

On Thursday, 23 April, Kerry and I will be available all day for rapid-fire interviews. 

When we say “rapid-fire,” we really mean it: we’re scheduling 15-minute blocks throughout the day to catch up via Zoom, in the hopes of speaking with as many companies as possible.

While we won’t be able to see the latest 3D printers, materials, or software demos on a tradeshow floor like we usually do this month, we’re hoping that these quick windows will still offer us a chance to catch up as much as possible in the virtual arena.

Kerry lays out quite neatly what we’re asking:

“If we know you, please bring details on your latest news. If we don’t know you, please be prepared to provide a bit of background and history about your company or project.”

You can sign up for a time to speak with us here.

Time slots will be filled first-come-first-serve via Calendly. Your booking will be routed directly to either Kerry or me; Calendly will let you know once you secure your time which of us you’ll be speaking with, and a confirmation and calendar reminder will go straight to your email. Additional guests can be added when you book simply by adding their email addresses in (great for PR/executive or other multi-person chats).

Day-of, simply click the Zoom link in your email and enter the conference password. We’ll then have 15 minutes to get right into your latest news, updates, strategies, and announcements.

This one-day virtual event doesn’t in any way take the place of the excellent usual calendar of in-person spring shows, but, well — we’ve always appreciated the opportunity to have those talks with the industry, and we miss seeing and hearing directly from everyone. Press releases in our inboxes and the occasional webinar or one-off virtual interview have been much appreciated, but we’re excited to dedicate a full day to speaking with the industry.

We’re available 10am-5pm eastern time on Thursday the 23rd. Book your time now, because when they’re gone, they’re gone (…unless we have to add another day sometime soon!)

We’ll also have Marney on standby for any companies interested in discussing sponsorship/advertising opportunities. (And you can reach her any time via email.)

3D Printing Networking

Rapid-fire interview day is 10-5, but in addition to the interviews we’ve missed so much is that all-important part of events: networking!

We’ll have an open “happy hour” time slot from 5-6pm eastern, with an open virtual meeting anyone can pop in/out of so we can all catch up more casually. BYOB, of course (I don’t think my wine pour has quite enough reach, but I’ll be enjoying a nice glass of Malbec at this time).

Networking Happy Hour will take place on Google Hangouts — join us any time for a nice open chat!

We hope to see you Thursday to catch up!
