Second edition of AAMS, the international summit for Additive Manufacturing in Aerospace, 3 & 4 December in Toulouse, France

The first international business convention dedicated to Additive manufacturing in the Aerospace industry, the Aerospace Additive Manufacturing Summit will welcome, during two days, Tuesday 3rd and Wednesday 4th December at the Diagora-Labège convention centre in Toulouse, the key players in this field: industry leaders, suppliers, SMEs, mid-tier firms, and actors in the field of research.

For its first edition in 2017, AAMS brought together, also in Toulouse, 400 participants representing 15 countries and over 200 companies, and more than 1,500 BtoB meetings were organised.

This year should feature many enriching exchanges, through panel discussions and workshops hosted by industrial specialists from the business and research worlds as well as experts from the Aerospace Valley competitiveness cluster.

An event not to be missed, to find information and to debate on the different Additive Manufacturing challenges : the market trends, the position of the aerospace industry, the position of France and Europe, the most promising technologies, financing investments…

The show will also be the occasion for participants to establish privileged contacts, through BtoB meetings during the many networking pauses.
