On September 22 & 23 we opened our virtual and on side doors to our members and the AM community to host the MGA Annual Meeting 2021 (and of course to hold our General Assembly – as we do every year). But this year has been special… and oh, what a blast it was!

In 2016 a few companies came together because they believed that only together, not individually, each one fighting the same problems and facing the same hurdles, would the industry be able to push industrial additive manufacturing into serial production.

On September 22 & 23 we came together to celebrate the 5th Anniversary of the MGA network that was born out of the idea that together we are stronger – and the fact that we are now more than 130 member companies strong, proves that point.

Together with our friends and members of the network, we have spent two beautiful days celebrating the past achievements and listened to inspiring key notes about what else this great technology is capable of.

Now it’s time for us to look back at those eventful days:

As always, we opened our Annual Meeting with the members-only General Assembly, during which our executive board was discharged, and the cash auditor was reelected.

In addition, we are pleased to announce something very special to us: our members voted to appoint a third honorary member: congratulations and a huge thank you to Arvid Eirich, for building up the network and continuously supporting AM. Even if he now has taken over new responsibilities at the 3D printing project with the Deutsche Bahn – he will never be far away from the network and will continue to play a role in boosting AM.

The rest of the afternoon was filled with keynotes from our Advisory Counsellor Klaus Roeser, Benoit Dodin from SNCF, Dr Georg Fuchs from Fuchs & Cie, Dr Tina Schlingmann from EOS, Dr Özlem Weiss from Expertants and others.

 

Later, it was finally time for our on-side guests to enjoy the evening event with lots of tasty food and some lovely music, followed by our big MGA surprise …because what would a birthday party be without a cake, right?!

Even though the first day ended late, we started early on Day II and got to hear key notes from Lisa Widmann from Ultimaker, Sandra Neuwirth from Daimler, Dominic Duda from Takeda, Hakan Yavas from Turkish Aerospace, Ana Tomas & Jens Woelki from Berlin Partner für Wirtschaft und Technologie GmbH and many others.

After the last guest went home (and the last piece of cake has been eaten), we would once again like to express our thanks:

We will shortly start uploading presentations and pictures from the event, so be sure to come back soon!

“Respect! So, now it’s time to catch your breath, because it’s done. And you did it great! Congratulations to you and the team for organising the event. Everything worked absolutely smoothly, whether live on stage or from any home office. The presentations were interesting and entertaining. All in all a great event! However, it won’t be my hobby as it is really boring sitting here alone in the office, not being able to drink coffee or chat with anyone when you meet her or him by chance. So I sincerely hope that this meeting will remain a one-off exception. Now I hope you have a pleasant recovery and enjoy the feeling of having achieved something great. You can be proud of yourselves! I definitely am :-)”
