Dear AM family, users and visionaries,
For some time now, we have been looking at the pandemic development and the new decisions on the Infection Protection Act with a concerned eye.
Now the decision has been made - the Rapid.Tech 3D will take place exclusively digitally from June 22nd to 23rd, 2021.
The current developments relating to the corona pandemic, the extension of the lockdown and the foreseeable continued nationwide ban on holding events have shown that it is not possible to safely prepare the Rapid.Tech 3D as a hybrid event in June.
Nevertheless, Rapid.Tech 3D will take place this year and thus offer the industry a platform for exchange and networking - but in a purely digital implementation.
What does that mean?
The digital conference program will consist of a main stream and a Rapid.Tech special session per day. The presentations are still live and will be integrated into the conference stream via our digital event platform. Participants can ask questions about this at any time and contribute.
The guests of the online event can look forward to an attractive, user-oriented specialist program that presents AM solutions under the guiding principle of sustainability in the industry and technology-specific forums. The program includes the tried and tested automotive & mobility sessions; Aviation; Medical, dental & orthopedic technology, software, processes, construction; Tool, model and mold making, AM science and the Fraunhofer Forum Competence Field Additive Manufacturing. With the Forum News from AM, another subject area will be added this year.

Overview conference program
Exhibitors have the opportunity to attend Rapid.Tech 3D digitally. Visitors can find out more about your company and your products via a microsite. Among other things, logo, company data, company descriptions, social media channels, product presentations, brochures and much more can be integrated. Visitors can use virtual business cards to communicate directly with your stand personnel via text chat, message, or video call.
For even more visibility of your digital package, we also offer three upgrade modules.
In addition to the conference program, one focus of the digital Rapid.Tech 3D is networking. Every registered visitor receives a digital business card that they can fill with important information and interests. By specifying the fields of interest, the visitor receives specific suggestions with suitable contacts, but also has the opportunity to view all participants via the networking area and to contact them via text chat, video call or message. You can also use a calendar function to book appointments with exhibitors and other congress participants.
The Chat Roulette function will be a special highlight. People who have confirmed this function have the opportunity to be connected in a kind of speed dating with other participants in routing video calls. In this way you can make new contacts and explore common ground. After a given time slot, you will be automatically forwarded to the next participant.
