Rabinovitz Terminator headThe Terminatovitz was one of the highlights from the 2012 event...
The Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) received a lot of interest in its conference from those that attended TCT Live 2012. According to Gary Rabinovitz, AMUG’s president, one of the very first conference registrations came from a UK professor that made good on his promise at TCT Live that he would “cross the pond” to be at the conference.
When asked why anyone would attend both events, Graham Tromans, AMUG ambassador and president of G. P. Tromans Associates, said, “TCT Live is an exceptional trade show with a very good, free, show-floor conference that attracts experts and those that have just started looking at additive manufacturing. AMUG is a smaller event, which runs for five days, that opens its doors only to those that own or operate additive manufacturing equipment.”
He continued, “So, at AMUG, you have user-to-user information transfers from those that have first-hand experiences. It’s more like an opportunity to get free consultations from dozens of people that have hard-learned lessons.”
Tromans noted that he volunteers his time to both organizations and that he has religiously attended both events for many years.
Rabinovitz also said, “AMUG thanks the good folks at Rapid News Group for donating the TCT Live booth space. Without that, we wouldn’t have been introduced to the thousands that walked the exhibit hall."
