In case you missed Carnival last month, Brazil’s second biggest event of the year is about to hit the streets of Sao Paulo. Of course, I’m talking about the Inside 3D Printing Conference and Expo, which is heading to South America’s biggest country with South America’s largest 3D printing event for the second time.
Along with many of the world’s leading 3D printing companies, including Stratasys, 3D Systems, and Materialise, the event will see a number local players in the industry. Among these are official 3D printer and software distributors, like Mcor reseller BCSA and SolidWorks reseller SKA, prototyping firms, like FastParts, and 3D printing shops, like Rede Brasielra. There are also a variety of locally manufacturers of desktop RepRap-style 3D printers, including: cliever (which has a striking similarity to the original UP and Afinia 3D printers), 3DProcer, 3DCloner, and Sethi3D.
In addition to speakers representing some of the above groups, but also experts from Brazil’s educational institutions and companies. From the international front, speakers include: Karel Brans, Strategic Partnership Manager at Materialise; Jon Cobb, Vice President of Corporate Affairs at Stratasys; Luiz Fernando Dompieri, General Manager of 3D Systems; and Yu Wang, Manager of Shenzhen Esun Industrial Co. Ltd. Specialists from the region will cover a broad range of topics, with attorney Bruna Castanheira de Freitas discussing IP law and Uformia’s Frederick Sena speaking to the use of bioprinting for forensic purposes.
The event will be essential to anyone in Brazil hoping to get familiar with the broader 3D printing market in the country, but will also serve to provide key insight into the region as a whole in the context of the global 3D printing ecosystem. To learn more, visit the Inside 3D Printing website.
