Additive Manufacturing commonly referred to as 3D-Printing, is a disruptive technology that will impact various industries and provide endless opportunities for companies willing to rethink their operations.

The inaugural event in 2019 proved that Southern Africa has great additive manufacturing potential.  There are already ample 3D-Printing specialists working with business leaders to incorporate this disruptive technology and have shown how they are starting to reap the benefits of adopting AM within their businesses.
