PM Industry Heads to Vegas

June 8, 2017

With POWDERMET2017 and AMPM2017 just around the corner, the powder metallurgy (PM) industry is packing bags and hopping flights to the bright city lights of the famous Las Vegas Strip. What is on the agenda for attendees this year?

  • To start with, attendee numbers are at the highest rate in over a decade, and networking opportunities are plentiful. Also, thanks to a grant from the National Science Foundation, we have more student attendees than ever before.
  • While POWDERMET2017 technical sessions are loaded with more than 200 worldwide industry experts ready to discuss the latest R&D, AMPM2017 is full-to-bursting with technical presentations.
  • Finally, for the first time in recent memory, the exhibit hall is completely sold out. This year attendees will have access to over 115 exhibitors who are ready to explain cutting edge PM technology. In the spirit of Vegas, exhibitors are also ready to help you with your chance to win up to $500 by playing POWDERMET's new Exhibitor Game Card.

To add to the excitement, AMPM2017 will host an organizational meeting for the Association for Metal Additive Manufacturing. The meeting is scheduled for June 16, 2017, at the Bellagio Hotel, Las Vegas, at 9:30 a.m. in Renoir 1. The current buzz is that metal AM industry interest is extremely high. All are welcome to attend.

POWDERMET2017 and AMPM2017 are the best places in North America to meet with PM and metal AM parts manufacturers, powder & feedstock suppliers, equipment & service providers, and consumers. Visit and to learn more.
