Public Knowledge announced today that it will host the fourth annual 3D/DC event on Capitol Hill April 29. This event connects 3D printing companies from across the country with both policymakers and the public. Attendees will have the opportunity to attend 3D printing-oriented policy panels, converse with participants, and see the technology in action.
The following may be attributed to Michael Weinberg, Senior Vice President at Public Knowledge:
“We are excited to announce that the world of 3D printing is coming back to Washington, DC this spring. On April 29 we will host 3D/DC 2015, our fourth (mostly) annual bacchanalia of 3D printing and policy. This is the premier 3D printing policy event of the year, bringing together the 3D printing world with the world of policy.
“This year we are bringing panels back. 3D/DC 2015 will feature panels on IP, medical applications, distributed manufacturing, fostering the development of small businesses, and education. Along with the current lineup, we will announce additional speakers and participants in the coming weeks.
“The constant for 3D/DC has always been a demonstration and reception. This year our demonstration reception will be bigger and better than ever. It will give everyone a chance to see 3D printers first-hand and to discuss policy issues in a more relaxed, one-on-one environment.
“So mark your calendars. April 29 is 3D printing day in Washington, DC!”
