2019 EMEA Partner Summit

1 - 2 October, Berlin

Formlabs is excited to share that our first European User and Partner Summit will take place in Berlin October 1st and 2nd.

We held our global User Summit and Partner Summit in May in Boston and now we’re bringing it directly to our EMEA community (Europe, Middle East and Africa). It will be at the iconic Funkhaus building where Tech Open Air just held their conference.

The first day at the User Summit, we will deep dive into industry workflows and learn from our most disruptive customers about how they push boundaries in their industry using 3D Printing. There will be thought leadership keynotes, demos and hands-on workshops by Formlabs experts across all industries. Highlights include a fireside chat with New Balance’s Katherine Petrecca, and talks from leading European users, including CEO of Mass Customization platform Twikit, Martijn Joris, and the creator of the Third Thumb, Dani Clode.

The second day at the Partner Summit, we will go deeper into the discussions we had at the Partner Summit in Boston, focused on EMEA priorities. You will get product updates from Formlabs leadership, hands-on exposure to our latest products, and also the opportunity to network with other Formlabs partners like you and catch up with the Formlabs team.

We look forward to seeing you in Berlin!
