The 3D revolution has already started to transform industry

The first edition of IN(3D)USTRY From Needs to Solutions has underlined the fact that the so-called Fourth Industrial Revolution, starring additive manufacturing and the digitalization of production processes, is already well underway. The event served to showcase the current applications and future challenges of this technology in fields such as architecture, the automotive industry, health and consumer products, and to facilitate business contacts between companies and end users.

IN(3D)USTRY featured more than one hundred prestigious speakers from a very representative spectrum of the economic and social ecosystem around the use of 3D printing. Several business deals were closed at the event which underlines the fact that this new trade fair formula, focusing on 3D applications for industrial sectors, adds even more value to this market. 

Many of the exhibitors have already said they intend to take part in the next edition of the event on 20-22 June 2017 at Fira de Barcelona's Montjuïc Venue. Of the trade professionals who visited IN(3D)USTRY From Needs to Solutions, 40% were senior managers and 60% were purchasing influencers, which further underlines the importance of the event to the sector.

With this show, Barcelona has been, over the course of three days, an international hub for ideas, challenges and solutions in additive and advanced manufacturing and has contributed to highlight the fact that this new manufacturing method is already a fact of life and that the Catalan capital has all the necessary elements to drive forward this new industrial revolution. Over 100 experts coincided in declaring that we are on the threshold of a new economic model which will also see the widespread use of open collaboration programs.
