Conference RAPID TCT

At this point, it should be clear that the upcoming RAPID + TCT 2024 event will be far more than just a trade show with many different event features available with an Expo Pass. But one key reason that RAPID + TCT has always been valued in the AM community is the focus on education that is relatively unique among 3D printing events. This is shown especially through a vast and comprehensive conference program, accessible to attendees through a Full Conference Pass or One-Day Conference Pass.

Covering the three full days of the event, between June 25th and June 27th, RAPID + TCT’s conference program has become a legendary feature among attendees. This is not just thanks to the fact that it will cover pretty much every aspect of the additive manufacturing value chain, from software and materials all the way through 3D printing technologies and post-processing and applications, but that it truly has something for everyone. Whether you’re just exploring AM applications, or are a veteran to the technology looking to optimize your processes, the conference has something for everyone. Let’s take a closer look at what attendees can expect.
