(Hong Kong - July 30, 2014) - Mediabistro Inc. (OTCQX: MBIS) and 3DPrintingIndustry.com are hosting Hong Kong's first significant tradeshow about 3D printing, the Inside 3D Printing Conference and Expo, on August 26 - 27, 2014. With 3D printing rapidly picking up pace in the industry, both in terms of its development and adoption, Mediabistro has invited the brightest and most prominent industry leaders from around the world to converge in Hong Kong to share their views on the future of the technology, as well as strategies to succeed in the upcoming third industrial revolution.


"3D printing was invented quite some time ago, but due to the printers' limited capabilities and the high costs associated with 3D printing during the technology's infancy, it wasn't really adopted or used extensively - until recently," said Alan M. Meckler, Chairman and CEO of Mediabistro Inc. "Looking at how fast the 3D printing technology is currently developing, I think it's only a matter of time until 3D printing completely revolutionizes all aspects of manufacturing. Hong Kong, being the gateway city to the world's capital of manufacturing - China, is one of the most suitable locations for us to host Inside 3D Printing. If anyone wants to ride this upcoming economic boom, this conference and exposition is something not to be missed."

The two-day event, organized by Mediabistro, consists of 18 seminars covering topics from aerospace, art, and bioprinting to the makers revolution, start-ups of all kinds, and more. Stratasys, the Platinum Sponsor for the event, will be hosting the morning keynote session on August 27. The keynote speakers participating in the conference include Terry Wohlers, Principal Consultant and President, Wohlers Associates, Inc.; Nave Rachman, Technical Director, Stratasys Asia Pacific & Japan; and Michele Marchesan, Chief Opportunity Officer, 3D Systems.

Wohlers will host the opening keynote titled "The Next Frontier in 3D Printing." Working as a consultant for many corporations in different industries, Wohlers will share his views on where the 3D printing technology is headed based on his extensive experience and professional background.

Rachman's day 2 morning keynote is titled "Manufactory Application in 3D Printing: Direct Digital Manufacturing (DDM)." He will explain how traditional manufacturing tools have successfully been replaced by FDM technology. Later in the day, Marchesan will highlight key trends and share advanced manufacturing initiatives during the afternoon keynote titled "Manufacturing the Future."

In addition to an impressive lineup of speakers, the event will also feature Hong Kong's largest exhibition related to 3D printing. If your company is interested in sponsoring or exhibiting, contact us at 3dprinting.sponsors@mediabistro.com.
