The midyear event will feature hundreds of top brands, innovators and start-ups showcasing the latest technology products, plus a two-day series of free conferences on the most relevant and innovative technology trends.

3D Designers to Battle It Out

The inaugural 3D Printing Make-Off, June 25–26, will gather designers and innovators for two days to print their creations before a live audience of media, analysts, retailers and distributors. Finalists will take the stage during the 3D@Home Panel, which will be streamed live on CEWeek TV, dealerscope.com and the technologytell.com network.

“3D printing has been a game changer for the entire technology industry, and we’re thrilled to host the latest designers, technologists and creators as part of the inaugural 3D Printing Make-Off at CE Week,” said Martin Porter, executive producer, CE Week.

The 3D printing market generated buzz nearly five years ago at CE Week 2009 when MakerBot, then a 3D printing start-up, made its debut from the exhibit floor. The company has since catapulted to success and was sold to Stratasys International in a $400-million stock deal.

CE Week is organized by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), Martin Porter & Associates, Consumer Technology Publishing Group/NAPCO and the Technology Tell Network. ceweekny.com
