The TIPE 3D Printing conference is coming up in January, gearing up to offer the additive manufacturing industry a new resource for expert presentations and networking.

Announced earlier this year, TIPE is the new annual conference from Women in 3D Printing. Featuring an all-female speakers agenda, the inclusive event is seeing rising interest in its four tracks: Technology x Industry x People x Economics.

This week, TIPE has filled up its platinum sponsor spaces, as Nora Touré, Founder of Women in 3D Printing, announces:

“We are proud to welcome TRUMPF, MatterHackers, HP, Dassault Systèmes and GE Additive as the five Platinum sponsors to our first annual Women in 3D Printing conference, TIPE 3D Printing. We thank our platinum sponsors for supporting our mission of promoting and encouraging women in additive manufacturing.”

With the call for speakers closing this week (there’s still time to submit interest here through 17 September!), the conference will feature dozens of leaders from throughout the additive manufacturing industry. Boeing, Ford, Cummins, HP, Xerox, Carbon, EOS, US Army, RMIT, University Federal de São Paulo, LEO Lane, Wikifactory, STEMConnector, AM-Cubed, MakeLab, Additive Integrity, and America Makes are just a few of the recognizable company names on the agenda.

Different additive manufacturing technologies and applications, from desktop to industrial, from automotive to medical, will be represented across the agenda.

“As we all work towards a future of equity and inclusion in Additive Manufacturing, it is our responsibility to support organizations who are leading by example. MatterHackers has been involved with Women in 3D Printing since 2017,” shares Mara Hitner, Vice President of Strategic Partnerships at MatterHackers. “I personally get so much out of their networking events and panels. We are honored to be partnering on exciting desktop 3D printing content which will move the industry forward, and to support the diverse voices of the TIPE Conference.”

Executives, thought leaders, change makers, and other experts from across a variety of fields — aerospace, medical, consumer, automotive, industrial, non-government, nonprofit — will offer sessions and panels to share their knowledge and experiences.

Planned as an annual event, the inaugural TIPE 3D Printing conference will be all-virtual, running on January 27th and 28th, 2021.

“The TIPE 3D printing conference will provide a disruptive platform to inspire and support not only women in 3D printing, but all innovators across our 3D printing community and many other global industries,” said Ramon Pastor, global head of HP’s 3D Printing and Digital Manufacturing business. “There is immense strategic value in the topics represented by TIPE, and how a diverse workforce will help accelerate the growth and maturation of 3D printing and digital manufacturing around the world. We are proud to support an event that fosters diverse and inclusive perspectives, and closely aligns with HP’s own mission to positively impact people, the planet, and the communities we serve.”

Of course, as with all Wi3DP events, everyone is welcome to attend. Registration is open now, with the live streamed event free to attend, and live stream + full event recording access available for $95.

The support of industry and community has been strong as this first edition of TIPE has been in the works over the last several months. While launching a new event during a pandemic is a challenge, going fully virtual offers the opportunity for a truly global gathering of the minds, with speakers and attendees coming together from different continents with the single goal of furthering the 3D printing industry.

“As a platinum sponsor, TRUMPF looks forward to participating in the conference’s innovative support of introducing a holistic approach of bringing the additive manufacturing community together through the four tracks, Technology, Industry, People, and Economics.” says Jack Pennuto Jr – Director of Sales, Laser Technology, TRUMPF North America.

Wi3DP is looking to build a more equitable future, strengthening the entire industry. The Wi3DP community is today more than 10,000 strong, with members from more than 23 countries and a growing network of local chapters around the world.

“We are excited to continue to support the entire Women in 3D Printing Community and to participate in the upcoming TIPE virtual conference. We look forward to sharing and contributing to the amazing community, and certainly also learning from everyone throughout the show,” shares Rani Richardson – Dassault Systèmes, Aerospace & Defense Lightweight Engineering Director.

Building relationships with industry leaders, including TIPE’s five Platinum sponsors, has shown that the future of additive manufacturing is global, diverse, and technologically strong. TIPE 3D Printing will bring this community together, as speakers, panelists, and attendees join together to share experiences, strategies, and successes.

Christine Furtoss, Vice President of Advanced Manufacturing at GE Additive adds that TIPE 3D Printing is “Yet another great initiative by the team at Women in 3D Printing. We’re happy to support as a platinum sponsor and look forward to contributing alongside this stellar line up of speakers.”

Fabbaloo is proud to serve as a media partner for TIPE 2021.
