Mackay to Host First Australian 3D Printing Expo

The date has been released for the first dedicated Australian 3D Printing Expo, which will be held in Mackay on Thursday June 13th, 2013. The expo will feature world class speakers describing and illustrating the biggest technological breakthrough in the manufacturing and design sectors since the first industrial revolution.

The team of Australian and international industry leaders speaking at the 3D Printing Expo include:

  • Dr. Mark Hodge - CEO, Defence Materials Technology Centre (DMTC)
  • Mr John Barnes - Titanium Theme Leader, CSIRO
  • Mr Bruce Grey - Managing Director at Advanced Manufacturing CRC
  • Professor Milan Brandt -Professor, RMIT
  • Simon Bartlett - Director, Rapid Pro
  • Mitchell Benness - Business Development Manager, 3D Systems

There is expected to be over 200 delegates attending representing local businesses in Mackay and surrounding areas, as well as a wide range of 3D printing industry leading sponsors and exhibitors. Event Coordinator, Lila Clarke, said that this highly anticipated conference is one of the first in Australia to address the radical impact of 3D printing in a range of industries including engineering, construction, architecture, manufacturing and health.

The reason for choosing Mackay instead of a major city is that there are more engineers by population ratio than any other city in Australia. There is a significant mining boom and extensive support surrounding it. "Regional centres like Mackay generally have to travel to major cities to visit conferences. Holding the conference in Mackay allows the target market to be directly involved from the very start”, Ms Clake added.
