2016 AMUG Conference — St. Louis, Missouri

Additive Manufacturing Users Group

AMUG educates and advances the uses and applications of
additive manufacturing technologies.

AMUG is an independent, industry-wide users group that gives its members a forum for learning, information exchange and establishing professional connections. No matter what additive manufacturing technology you use, AMUG is here to assist you in getting the most from the technology and achieving all that is possible.

As a member, you have access to a wealth of knowledge and experience. Build from it to optimize operations, overcome challenges and avoid potential problems.

How do we do all that? We bring together our members at the annual conference. Our members exchange ideas and experiences in technical sessions, workshops and casual conversations. Once there, you will find the event to be open, inviting and friendly. So, mark your calendars — March 19 - 23, 2017.


Our event is open to all owners/operators of additive manufacturing equipment. The annual event features an exhibition as well as a technical conference where industry leaders present fresh ideas and cost-effective solutions for additive manufacturing and 3D printing.

  • Technical Presentations
  • AMUGexpo
  • Awards Banquet
  • Networking


The AMUG Conference is made possible by the generous contributions of sponsors who help underwrite the annual event. In return, sponsors are featured throughout the event and promoted in member communication.
