(MecklerMedia) The opening session on Sept. 17 at MecklerMedia’s 3D Printing Politics Conference in Washington, D.C., will be devoted to a discussion of the “Economic Impact of the Obama Administration.” The speakers and moderator will describe the impact of President Barack Obama’s attention to additive manufacturing in his State of the Union speech, the importance of the Maker Faire at the White House, public-private partnerships such as the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute (NAMII) and the Digital Manufacturing & Design Innovation Institute (DMDI), which Obama supports, and how those help promote 3D printing.
Panelists will discuss new innovations generated by 3D printing and the jobs already created, especially for designers. Speakers at the opening session will be Bill Foster, congressman of the 11th Congressional District of Illinois, and Jim Kohlenberger, former chief of staff, White House officer of science and technology policy, and now president of JK Strategies. Alan Fleischmann, president and CEO of Lauren Strategies, will serve as moderator.
