2012 Review

The 2012 edition of TCT was a stellar success. Almost 5,000 attendees came through the doors of the event over the two days with the quality of the visitors particularly high. Exhibitors reported significant lead levels. In addition to the industrial solution providers 2012 also saw the debut of the Personalize hub, focused on the emerging maker and consumer markets for 3D printing. This zone proved to be one of the most popular and busy sections of the show.

@DreyaT What a fantastic first day at tctlive. So busy we never got to stop for lunch!

@jezpullen As ever a fantastic event @tctlive. Brilliant work by the organisers.

@quigdes @TCTLive another great show. Stayed past closing again. Not many I do that for. Last meeting was most interesting.  Maybe more later!

@electrobloom Such a great response from all @tctlive today. The show for everything to do with 3dprinting :-)

@Europac3d @TCTLive has been big success, over 200 prospects from 2 days!

@tanith_frm Really enjoyed @TCTLive , would recommend it to anyone. Really good seminars and lots to see.

@NTCADCAM @TCTLive is going awesome! If you're around the arena come say Hi to us on stand S21 with @WSpecialists

@Sculpteo Awesome @TCTLive event. Thanks to all of you who visited our stand. We had a blast! Consumer 3D printing is there. personalize


TCT is still the shop window for the UK industry, and the seminars add to the experience for visitors who want to learn and find specific products or innovations. The variety and interesting developments in 3D products have increased year by year, and TCT is the only UK event to find all under one roof.

We get very good leads from the show, a perfect audience, a perfect environment.
