2016 Review

The UK’s annual showcase of 3D technologies for product development, manufacturing and engineering closed its doors to rave reviews from visitors and exhibitors alike. TCT Show, which took place for the 21st time in 2016, featured a plethora of world-class speakers, global technology releases and multiple European and UK debuts for new 3D technologies and their applications. The event once again drew the global 3D tech world’s focus, with 20% of attendees arriving from more than 40 countries to see 250 exhibiting companies from 24 countries.

“We come back to TCT year on year because it is THE industry event in the UK, it’s as simple as that. It’s an event that’s a showcase of where the industry is going.”
