INSIDE 3D PRINTING: Where 3D Printing Means Business -- Javits Convention
Center, New York City, April 22-23, 2013
NEW YORK -- January 8, 2013
WebMediaBrands Inc. (Nasdaq: WEBM) today announced the launch of the Inside 3D
Printing Conference and Expo (#3DPrintConf) in New York City at the Jacob K.
Javits Convention Center on April 22-23, 2013. Renowned 3D printing expert Dr.
Hod Lipson of Cornell University will serve as the program chair of the
inaugural event. Inside 3D Printing consists of two full days of tutorials and
conference sessions, as well as an exhibition of 3D printing applications and
services. A companion west coast show will take place at the Santa Clara, CA
Convention Center in September 2013.
"Inside 3D Printing is the first U.S. event to delve into the present and
future of the business impact of 3D printing,” stated Alan M. Meckler,
Chairman and CEO of WebMediaBrands.“3D printing has become the next great
technological disruptive force in the field of ‘making things’ and according
to a recent article in The Economist, 3D printing ‘could well rewrite the
rules of manufacturing in much the same way as the PC trashed the traditional
world of computing.’”
Dr. Hod Lipson is an associate professor and the director of the Creative
Machines Lab at Cornell University. He co-authored the book, Fabricated: The
New World of 3D Printing, which will be published February 4, 2013 by John
Wiley & Sons.
