3D Manufacturing Promotion Association
Mr. Sawakoshi Toshiyuki
A global market of a 3D printer keeps extending about 20 % a year. But a Japanese market isn't extending the nearest for 3 years. Japanese 3D printer utilization is behind schedule for more than 10 years more than the world, and it's said that they're here. It's explained about this meeting activity as these countermeasures.

European Association of the Machine Tool Industries
Chair of the European Additive Manufacturing Working Group
Mr. Stewart Lane
Having completed a degree in manufacturing engineering at Hatfield Polytechnic and L’Ecole d’Ingenieurs, France in 1994, Stewart’s early career was spent working for several years as an engineer and Quality Manager in the French and Swedish automotive industry.
For the past 6 years, he has held a number of positions, including responsibility for general management of Renishaw’s UK and Ireland sales subsidiary and as the Group’s Corporate Business Development Manager.

Global Business Advisory Services, LLC
Founder and Principal
David Burns is the Founder of GBAS, LLC, an international advisory firm specialising in manufacturing technologies. With more than thirty-five years of experience, Dave is the Co-Founder of ExOne and a former President and CEO of the Gleason Corporation. He is also a Senior Advisor to the Association of Manufacturing Technology (AMT) and a Trustee at the Rochester Institute of Technology.
Advanced digital manufacturing technologies in industrial applications are transforming how products are made. The true power of these digitally based technologies lies in their seamless integrations across platforms. At the same time, the landscape for these technologies is dynamic and ever-changing.
From a US based perspective, we will discuss how the broad base of dynamic digital manufacturing technologies is expanding and how this expansion makes possible full blown industrial production. In the end, the success of industrial production is measured in absolute terms, and additive manufacturing is beginning to perform acceptably in those key metrics.

Head of Content
When Daniel O'Connor started at Rapid News in 2013, the 3D printing hype train was approaching full-speed. The learning curve was steep but Dan's time in various editorial roles gave him a deeper understanding of the technology and its many applications. Now as Head of Content, Dan is responsible for the integrity and output of TCT's numerous content channels.
The world is in flux; many countries are rallying against globalization, tariffs are in vogue, and the evidence for climate change evidence looms over manufacturing. In this panel session Head of Content at TCT Group, Daniel O'Connor will discuss with our panelist what the opportunities additive manufacturing offers on this ever-changing planet.
