The 2014 International CES show in Las Vegas will have a 4,400 square foot 3D Printing TechZone so that manufacturers can show off their latest products to the public.
The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) have announced that they have sold out of space for the 3,000 sq ft space originally set aside. It has now been expanded by more than 25% and a list of nine exhibitors are currently signed up, including 3D Systems, Makerbot Industries, Sculpteo, and Stratasys Inc.
“Exhibitor demand really drove our decision to formalize this 3D Printing TechZone, as it’s quickly becoming one of the more dynamic and innovative categories within our industry, while also becoming more accessible to consumers from a price perspective,” said Karen Chupka, senior vice president, International CES and corporate business strategy. “The sell-out response to this TechZone speaks to the
strong interest in this category and the desire from leaders in the field to showcase their new products on the CES show floor.”
The exhibitors in the TechZone will showcase a variety of applications for 3D printing, including prototyping in the medical, aerospace, engineering and automotive industries as well as desktop printing machines for consumers.
The 3D Printing TechZone will be on of 20 market-specific TechZone exhibition areas highlighting a total of 15 different product categories. It will be located in the Las Vegas Convention and World Trade Center (LVCC), South Hall 3, and the show runs from January 7th to the 10th 2014.
