Save the dates for this year's Summit at Amelia Island, Florida, November 11-13, 2015!

Another A.R.E. Industry Summit has come and gone. Held Nov. 5-7 in Carlsbad, Calif., this year will be remembered for the inspirational presentation by Josh Linkner — disrupted by a helpful drone encounter – as well as some positive news on the economic front and new applications for additive manufacturing (3D printing).

Excellent network of fellow colleagues – open chat about what works & what does not.

  • President: Bob Rosean, owner and CEO of T.J. Hale
