In its 3rd year, more than 2,000 attendees are anticipated to be part of the free, premier virtual additive manufacturing event of the year!
This year the event is co-produced by Women in 3D Printing and SME. On May 17, 2022, was the announcement of their partnership. Industry leaders SME, a non-profit professional association dedicated to advancing manufacturing, and Women in 3D Printing (Wi3DP), a global organization with a mission to close the gender gap in Additive Manufacturing (AM), formed a partnership to attract and build a diverse next-gen workforce to advance the AM industry. The TIPE Conference is one of their initiatives in 2023 that supports their shared goal of offering AM engagement and education year-round, including through digital platforms.
