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.

2016 Review


“TCT is a great platform, a lot of the key players are here and that’s why we decided to be here first. As you see our presence is significant within the show and we wanted to make sure we exposed our news to Europe in our big way starting with the UK market.”
Alex Monino, WW Marketing & GTM Director for 3D Printing at HP

“TCT itself has always been a major player by combining a high diversity of professionals and early adopters in one place. Having all the main players here and having very open conversations with those target groups is great.”
Michael Sorkin, European General Manager at Formlabs
