I make all the connections I need to make out here… The show meets my expectations every year; I want to be here next year – I want to be here until they tell me I can’t come anymore!”

Marshall Pelot, Western Regional Manager, DIT-MCO International

“We’ve had a good mix of people, both engineers who want to use the machines, as well as people on the supply side who are interested in discussing plastics applications [and things like that], so we’ve met a good variety of people.”

Russell Singer, Design & Development, MAKEiT, Inc

“This is a great launch event for us – gets us familiar with various companies and people across the industry. We’ve made lots of great connections, literally my whole jacket is full of business cards! …We’ve got great contacts and I think it’ll lead to great things! …

The show organisers have just been phenomenal, given us great news feeds – we’ve never had that before. Next year we’ll be back, this is the first – more to come.“

Brian Matthews, CEO, Additec

We’re here for the first time in Pasadena… this is day two and it’s been very positive. In fact on the first day we had already accomplished what we came here for. You always dream of the connections you’d like to have, and the people you’d like to know and again - on the first day we got all the dream connections; for example Scale Composites, SpaceX, Northrop Grumman – we’ve made contacts there!

Peter Bishop, CEO & Managing Director, Bishop GmbH - Aeronautical Engineers

 “So far it’s been really good. For us, what’s nice about this conference as suppose to others is it’s a little more technical and engineering focused and so we find the conversations we have we customers or industry partners is more technical focused on the product.”
