Active participation in one of the many hands-on workshops at the 2014 AMUG Education and Training Conference.
Online registration has opened for the 27th Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) 2015 Education and Training Conference held in Jacksonville, Florida from 19th to 23rd April.
The five day event is open to owners and operators of all additive manufacturing technologies bringing together engineers, designers and educators from the industry.
Mark Barfoot, AMUG president, said, “I am quite excited to be building an agenda that continues to deliver a wealth of hands-on experiences and extremely practical sessions where users gain real insight into techniques or tips that they can take back to the office and start using right away.”
The conference will include technical sessions and hands on workshops designed to discuss challenges and best practices for 3D printing systems and share expertise and developments. The annual Awards Banquet will also return to recognise excellence in the additive manufacturing industry.
“What distinguishes AMUG’s conference from all others are the continuous opportunities provided each day for networking and growing your knowledge base,” explains Barfoot. “You can easily justify your trip based on the hands-on sessions, but I guarantee that if you actively participate, you will generate more contacts and learn more from casual conversations than you will in the structured conference activities.”
Barfoot adds: “For the first time, we will have a business track that will help those that are now involved in the business aspects of overseeing a department. Participants will walk away with a better understanding about financing options, investor inquiries and patent concerns, to name a few of the topics. This will be extremely valuable for career growth, and it will provide key points to bring back to management teams,” Barfoot added.
The advanced, all-inclusive conference registration fee is $695.00. For details and a link to registration, visit www.am-ug.com.
