The UK's definitive and leading 3D printing, additive manufacturing and product development technology show took place in September 2012 to widespread acclaim. Almost 6,000 attendees from 48 countries flocked to the NEC for two days of inspiration, creativity, learning and most importantly business. The increased visitor numbers and international participation are testament to the importance of this event on the world stage. The unique combination of cutting edge technology, with all the major manufacturers, machines and technologies ensures TCT Show + Personalize continues its mission to support the industry and drive technology adoption in the product development and manufacturing space. Over 150 exhibitors took their place on the show floor alongside over 40 world class speakers. Over 2,000 of the attendees attended at least one presentation during the two days. However the key to the continued success of TCT Show + Personalize is the level of business created and executed at the event.
A few years ago exhibiting at TCT was about educating the market. This year we could clearly see that the market is much more aware of 3d printing and its applications. It is now becoming a mainstream technology and TCT is a very focused event on the subject. We enjoyed a constant flow of enquiries over the two days and managed to close some good business at the event giving us great ROI. We are looking forward to 2014 where we will once again demonstrate our leadership in 3d printing.
