TCT Asia

asiaTCT Asia is entering its third year and has quickly become one of Asia's premier 3D technology events for the design, development and manufacturing communities. First held in 2015, TCT Asia quickly outgrew the Shanghai Convention & Exhibition Center of International Sourcing and moved in 2017 to Shanghai's largest and best-equipped fairground, SNIEC.

With some 10,500 visitors, TCT Asia is set to become one of the largest events for innovative development and manufacturing tools not just in Asia, but globally.

The next edition of the event, organised by VNU Rapid News Co. Ltd, will take place on 1-3 March 2018 at SNIEC, Shanghai.

TCT @ CES 2017 TCT’s biggest commitment outside our own events is to International CES where the brand presents the 3D Printing Marketplace and runs a full-day conference on 3D Printing.

CES epitomises the expansion of previously ‘professional’ tools into the hands of consumers and TCT’s mission is to help transfer the knowledge built over the decades of industrial use of CAD, scanning and 3D production to the consumer market — while dispelling a few myths along the way.
