SME to Host RAPID + TCT Event

SME will host its RAPID + TCT event from May 20-23 at Cobo Center in Detroit, MI.

With a critical focus on 3-D printing, RAPID + TCT puts the capabilities of additive manufacturing (AM) technology on display and explores the applications throughout affected industries, including aerospace, automotive, medicine and more. "These technologies are challenging the status quo, from best practices throughout the business landscape to public policy," said an SME spokesperson.

With over 125 presentations, eight workshops and three keynote presentations, the event is both a global conference and tradeshow that features more than 375 exhibitors and three networking receptions.

The three keynote presentations will include:

  • Bill Taylor, Entrepreneur, Author and Co-Founder of Fast Company
  • Naomi Murray, Ph.D., Director of Advanced Operations and Additive Technology Solutions at Stryker
  • Dominik Rietzel, Dr.-Ing., Head of Additive Manufacturing (Non-Metals) at BMW Group.

"For nearly 30 years, RAPID + TCT has served as a springboard for high-level decision makers to invest in technologies driving manufacturing into the future," said SME CEO and Executive Director Sandra Bouckley. "We are thrilled to welcome 7,000 such leaders from around the world to our home in Detroit."

"Each year, hundreds of leading technology and manufacturing companies debut exciting new products and innovations at RAPID + TCT," added the spokesperson. "These exhibits draw many of the world's most prestigious brands-ranging from Google and Amazon to Nike, Microsoft, NASA, Target and more-to conduct industry research on the ground at the event."

This year, RAPID + TCT returns to its birthplace: Detroit. "Not only is the area home to the highest concentration of engineering talent in the U.S., but the city is enjoying huge startup growth and has experienced more than $13 billion in new investments across more than 200 projects since 2006," said the spokesperson.
