Last year, the first ever Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo in Seoul, South Korea, turned out to be one of the biggest ever editions of the global event, attracting an unprecedented number of visitors and exhibitors. It also broke new ground as it became one of the most noticeable, state-of-the-art 3D printing tradeshows in the Asian region.
For 3D printing in South Korea, it really moved the industry into a higher gear as, a few weeks later, the government there announced the drawing up of a 10-year plan for the Korean 3D printing industry, with the aim of generating 15% of worldwide revenues by 2020. This followed hot on the heels of another big announcement at the Inside 3D Printing event by Korean company Rokit, who revealed their intentions to become the largest entry-level 3D printing company in the world by 2017. To say the least, Inside 3D Printing seems to have had more than its desired effect!
And Inside 3D Printing is back again this year with the promise to do even more. Returning to Seoul from June 24 – 26, the largest 3D printing expo and conference series is primed to cement its status as Korea’s largest annual 3D printing event. Organized by MecklerMedia and KINTEX (Korea International Exhibition Center), Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo 2015 – Seoul will have its 2nd grand opening in this part of the world on June 24th. With a blockbuster line-up of speakers, exhibitors and sponsors, the event promises to be more exciting and vibrant than ever before encapsulating the latest developments in 3D printing in Korea and the surrounding regions.
