Dear List

In an unprecedented step TCT has decided to remove the registration
fee for this years Additive Manufacturing Conference which will take
place October 20/21 at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, UK. It's fair to
say that this year more than ever before, designers, product
developers and manufacturers are looking to source cutting-edge
techniques and gain expert knowledge to help them stay ahead of the

As a media operation, that in many ways is as old as the technologies
themselves, we have a part to play in growing this industry. This year
travel and training budgets are under ever-increasing scrutiny and by
opening this Conference to all we hope to stimulate new converts to
the technologies and help drive the industry forward.

Over the years, The TCT Conference has pioneered knowledge exchange
within the industry and to this end the quality of papers being
presented in 2009 remains at the forefront of technological
advancement in Additive Manufacture.

Papers already confirmed include: Brian Cioffi, Converse; Steve
Wilkinson, Rolls-Royce; Volker Junior, Junior & Tacke; Iain Todd,
AMRC with Boeing; Mike Ayre, Crucible Industrial Design; Neil
Hopkinson, RMRG Loughborough University; Jeremy Pullin, Renishaw; and
Cyrille Peignot, Ecolateral ALM on behalf of EADS. We are particularly
delighted to announce that a Senior Executive of Airbus will present
the keynote address.

The theme of TCT Live 2009 is Business Critical Technologies for
Product Development and Manufacturing. This gives the 2009 conference
the opportunity to explore more deeply than ever before the realities
of additive manufacture and will look at whether the promises and
reported benefits are actually fact or fiction.

The conference programme has been specially formulated to address key
issues including the business reasons for adopting additive
technologies, definitive manufacturing applications of additive
fabrication, and future considerations such as economic, environmental
and corporate social responsibilities.

As a conclusion, the last session of the second day will draw together
equipment and material vendors and end-users to discuss the
practicalities of this technology and how they can really be used to
reduce cost, increase speed and improve efficiency.

The conference is expected to be heavily subscribed therefore any
visitor wishing to attend the TCT Live Additive Manufacturing
Conference must be pre-registered to be guaranteed entry. Visitors
registering on the day cannot be guaranteed entry. Registration can be
