Explore the latest developments and multi-disciplinary advances...

Driving radical change across engineering and manufacturing, additive technologies are having a major impact on all areas of production.


13-14 July 2022, Albert Hall, Nottingham

Additive International
is the premier event for additive manufacturing, showcasing next-generation technology and the latest thinking, providing a forum for practitioners to build their networks and drive innovation. 

Founded in 2006, Additive International (formerly known as the International Conference on Additive Manufacturing & 3D Printing), is a two-day event bringing together academic and industry experts to share their knowledge and ideas. The summit attracts over 250 delegates from more than 170 institutions, with interests in all the newest technological developments for the AM industry. 

Additive manufacturing has experienced a ‘coming of age’ in recent years, with the global market expected to grow from $12.6bn in 2020 to over $37bn by 2026*. 3D printing was key during the pandemic in mass producing parts for ventilators, PPE and other life-saving devices. 

Meeting in-person for the first time in two years, Additive International is the essential meeting-place for everyone involved in this rapidly evolving sector.

Additively manufacturing a new generation of super medical devices

In the next of our blogs from speakers at this year's Additive International conference, the University of Nottingham’s Professor Ricky Wildman looks at how recent advances in additive manufacturing technology could enable the development of a new generation of bio-instructive medical devices able to directly control cell behaviour.

Progress in sub-micrometer scale 3D printing

In the first of a series of blogs from speakers at this summer’s Additive International summit (Nottingham, 13 – 14 July) Professor Martin Wegener from Germany’s Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) discusses recent advances in micrometer and nanometer scale 3D printing

At the cutting edge

This July, leading researchers from the world of additive manufacturing will gather at Nottingham's Additive International Summit to share insights into the technologies that are shaping the future of the sector. Summit co-chairs - Professors Richard Hague and Chris Tuck - celebrate the welcome return of an event that is key for a sector which thrives on knowledge sharing.



A great networking and commercially valuable event that we plan to attend again.
