3D Printshow | London-Paris-New York Answered

Hey guys,

I'm based in London, and I'm also a real newb when it comes to 3D printing tech despite having been fascinated by it for a few years. I'm particularly art-interested, so for me 3D Printing is exciting because of the creative/social potential.  I'm not blessed with the ability to understand the engineering/programming side of the industry, but I'm really into conferences and events where we can talk about the implications.
I was wondering if any of you have been to /seen/heard of 3D Printshow - its recently gone global which bodes well for a good event, but I've not seen/heard that much hype and wondered if anyone here knew much.

Caitlinsdad gave you the answer to the question you asked.

He was well within the "Be Nice" parameters, with which he is far more familiar than you are (click on his user name to find out why).

I know nothing about the show, but I've heard of many of the exhibitors (one owns this site). 

What concerns me about such shows is the cost - every exhibitor pays to be there, and you are expected, basically, to visit a single-product mall. They also want you to pay again to listen to the interesting stuff. I think they're relying on people not understanding what's things cost - they want to charge you £50 just to be scanned, and then extra to actually get printed. 

They do not seem to be offering free entry for journalists and bloggers, which would have increased their exposure massively. I'd happily go on a press pass, and report on it here, but not for the £200 it would cost me as an ordinary visitor.

If you go, why not post a report here, then maybe we might think it's worth going if they hold it again?

Nope. I guess you would find the same conversation at a coffee shop.
