The NAMIC Global Additive Manufacturing Summit, otherwise known as GAMS 2021, is making its return on 25-26 November 2021. GAMS 2021 marks the 10th edition of the summit series and this is the second virtual run since the start of the pandemic, having featured over 200 global thought leaders since its inception.
Held in conjunction with Industrial Transformation ASIA-PACIFIC – a HANNOVER MESSE event and Asia’s leading Industry 4.0 event, GAMS 2021 will connect with a global audience to explore the global impact of Additive Manufacturing (AM) with ‘Revolutionising the Future of Additive Manufacturing with Leaders in 3D Printing’ as its driving theme.
In 2020, NAMIC concluded the first virtual edition of the Global AM Summit with great success, with a turnout of close to 1000 delegates from over 30 countries, providing a global platform for the world’s innovative and entrepreneurial minds to connect and convene on the latest in AM innovations and applications.
The event’s success was echoed by the speakers who have participated in Global AM Summit.
“I felt that Global AM Summit 2020 really connected a global Additive Manufacturing audience while stimulating an open dialogue about the key themes and issues affecting our industry,” commented Mr Joris Peels, Vice President of Consulting, SmarTech Analysis who participated as session chair for the Emerging Applications track in GAMS 2020.
Mr Jonathan Hung, Executive Chairman of Singapore Space & Technology Ltd (SSTL) commented, “GAMS 2020 is the perfect event to engage industry leaders and innovators from across the landscape. 3D printing for/in Space is not as commonly discussed and this was a great opportunity to share insights and connect with the network of professionals and experts. It is also notable that the team did a great job in coordinating the speakers and arrangement of this virtual event. Their attention to communication and timely responses were critical to the process. I am looking forward to the next event.”
Now in its second year of running a virtual summit, NAMIC envisions to bring the audience an improved and enhanced experience by introducing new elements into the Global AM Summit.
At the summit, esteemed guest-of-honour Mr Alvin Tan, Singapore’s Minister of State for Trade and Industry and Culture, Community and Youth will kickstart the summit with his opening address.
Professor Alfred Huan, Assistant Chief Executive, Science & Engineering Research Council, A*STAR will also deliver his keynote speech on Nurturing the Next Generation of Leaders in Additive Manufacturing for a Sustainable Future.
GAMS 2021 will see over 20 world-class thought-leaders sharing their knowledge on Additive Manufacturing, an increase over last year’s line-up of 16. Global venture capital firms such as AM Ventures and Xora, think-tanks such as the World Economic Forum, and companies such as APWORKS, Redefine Meat, and The LEGO Group, are featured.
