Infocast is proud to announce the inaugural Space 2.0 conference, set to take place September 8-10, 2015 at the Crowne Plaza San Jose in Milpitas, CA. The three day event is a unique opportunity for attendees to forge relationships with the pioneering investors and entrepreneurs in the emerging space commerce industry. Space 2.0 will be the first event dedicated to exploring the implications of “new money” in the space game, and will provide a rich networking environment to those seeking funding for ambitious projects in this exciting, futuristic landscape.

With new NASA policies in place, non-government organizations are now able participate in space-based entrepreneurship. As a result, companies like Lockheed Martin, Boeing, and Northrup are cutting costs and moving in a more commercial direction as competition increases within the satellite business. Newcomer Space X is in the process of becoming certified to make military satellites, ending the monopoly by United Launch Alliance, a partnership between Lockheed and Boeing, the Pentagon's two top suppliers.

Meanwhile, AirBus Defence and Space has just announced an industrial partnership with OneWeb Ltd., for the design and manufacture of a 900 microsatellite fleet, aimed at delivering affordable internet access on a global scale by 2018.

Attend Space 2.0 to network with the funders and innovators re-defining near-space commerce, identify revolutionary business models and gain insights into partnering strategies between new players and incumbent aero defense and satellite suppliers. Attendees will also discuss the latest thinking on leveraging space for commercial use, as well as the potential risk vs. reward involved in this large-scale undertaking, currently laying the groundwork for the future economy.

Building on the great success of the inaugural Additive Aerospace Summit last year, Infocast has announced the annual second Additive/Aerospace Summit 2014, scheduled for November 3-6, 2014, taking place in Downtown Los Angeles.

Direct part production in metals (and other advanced materials) is the new frontier of aerospace. Every week a new breakthrough is touted: turbine, injector, fuel vessel, wing span. Air forces, OEMs, MRO players and “New Space” startups are growing their use of additive for a wide range of parts, whether it be for ultimate use in passenger or cargo planes, fighter jets, rockets, helicopters, UAVs, satellites, and perhaps someday, …entire space stations? However, aerospace is exacting in the extreme when it comes to materials, and additively produced materials have new properties. Intensive coordination between all stakeholders must take place before additively made parts can be qualified for flight, and the full market unleashed for these new solutions.

Top Officials, R&D directors, additive program managers and thought leaders including:

AIRBUS ¦ BOEING ¦ LOCKHEED MARTIN ¦ SIKORSKY ¦ GKN AEROSPACE ¦ PRATT & WHITNEY ¦ NASA ¦ AGC AEROSPACE & DEFENSE ¦ BELL HELICOPTER ¦ RAYTHEON ¦ DELTA AIRLINES ¦ SPACE SYSTEMS/LORAL ¦ ORBITAL SCIENCES ¦ MET-L-FLO ASTM F42 COMMITTEE ¦ NLR ¦ TNO ¦ SINTEF RAUFOSS MANUFACTURING AS ¦ NATIONAL RESEARCH COUNCIL CANADA ¦ UNIVERSITY OF LOUISVILLE ¦ 3DSIM LLC ¦ PENN STATE UNIVERSITY ¦ AMERICAN WELDING SOCIETY ¦ NAYANG TECH UNIVERSITY ¦ TETHERS UNLIMITED ¦ AREVO LABS ¦ NORTHERN ILLINIOS UNIVERSITY ¦ WICHITA STATE UNIVERSITY ¦ MISSOURI UNIVERSITY OF SCIENCE & TECHONOLOGY ¦ GEORGIA STATE UNIVERSITY ¦ STRATONICS INC. ¦ HARVEST TECHNOLOGIES ¦ EOS OF N.A. ¦ VARIA 3D ¦ FABRISONIC LLC ¦ I3D MANUFACTURING and many more, will gather to share their plans, programs, requirements and timelines for what they need collectively to drive this emerging industry forward.

The Summit will be preceded by FOUR sessions covering the technical challenges, capabilities, and solutions for this white hot innovation sector.

  • Incodema3D’s Laser Metals for Direct Parts Tutorial | November 3, 2014
  • Additive Manufacturing for Aerospace 101 Workshop | November 4, 2014
  • Qualification Technical Symposium | November 4, 2014
  • Direct Manufacturing Platforms Showcase | November 4, 2014

This will be the premiere networking event of the year for decision-makers to prepare for extreme acceleration in 2015!

Infocast has announced its inaugural Additive Disruption Summit, scheduled for March 24 - 26, 2014 in San Francisco, CA.

Like any disruptive technology, additive will unleash lucrative new business models and is likely to unsettle existing businesses and processes. As a consequence, companies need to understand all the real world implications of current developments by engaging with a wide range of insightful and advanced thinkers from large corporations, farsighted investors and additive innovators.

Infocast has launched the Additive Disruption Summit to provide the opportunity to leverage a technology with dizzying growth and global scope. The event will focus on the interrelationship of business models, strategic impacts, technology status, IP and finance, and will cover all markets, from high-end industrial to biomedical, to consumer/retail to space commercialization. Speakers include Airbus, Amazon.com, Autodesk, FedEx Services, Ford Motor Company, Honeywell Aerospace, IBM, Kawasaki Robotics, USA, Inc., Semiconductor BU, Lockheed Martin, Meadwestvaco, Authentise Inc., 3D Systems, EOS of North America, Inc., Makerbot, Materialise, Sigma Labs, Tethers Unlimited, Inc., Citigroup, Siemens, TTB Berkeley, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, PARC, among many others.

Join all of the stakeholders – corporate strategics, additive suppliers, finance and investment, legal, R&D, and consulting firms – to connect, build strategic relationships, get the latest reports from the field, and understand how corporate America views the challenges and potential of additive manufacturing.

2013 Inaugural Bio-Printing Summit

Written by

Infocast, the leading producer of business intelligence and networking events, is pleased to announce the inaugural BIO-PRINTING Summit. The event is scheduled to take place on November 13-14, 2013 in Atlanta, Georgia. Attendees will be able to join leading international researchers, start-ups and early adopters.

Leading international researchers from the tissue engineering, bioengineering and bio-medical communities, start-up companies, early adopters and investors will convene for Infocast's inaugural BIO-PRINTING Summit to survey the latest innovations in biological laser/inkjet printing, cell and tissue patterning, blood vessels and vascularized networks fabrication, scaffolds and bio-materials.

The Summit will also provide an opportunity to not just hear from distinguished experts, but to build relationships with VCs, end-users and bio-medical device companies for licensing and commercialization opportunities.

Though still in its infancy, bio-printing is poised to revolutionize healthcare and tox testing. In accordance with Henry Fountain’s article – "At the Printer, Living Tissue" – published on August 18, 2013, in the New York Times, “Someday, perhaps, printers will revolutionize the world of medicine, churning out hearts, livers and other organs to ease transplantation shortages.” However, many biological, technical and regulatory challenges must be overcome before these profound biomedical innovations can be put to widespread practical use in improving human health.

This first-ever event will be chaired by Professors Lawrence J. Bonassar, Ph.D., and Jonathan T. Butcher, Ph.D., from the Department of Biomedical Engineering, Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, CORNELL UNIVERSITY. As Dr. Bonassar recently stated, “Bio-printing promises to change the way we manufacture medical implants, perform toxicology studies, and conduct pharmaceutical screening. This meeting brings together world experts in additive manufacturing and tissue engineering from academics and industry to discuss the history, state-of-the art, and future directions in this exciting new field.”
