BURBANK, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — November 26, 2013 — To many, 3D printing represents futuristic technology originally envisioned in the annals of science fiction. In reality, 3D printers already are transforming industry and represent an emerging focal point of engineering, creativity, disruptive technology, jobs and global competitiveness.

On January 31st, these forces will converge during the 3D Printer World Expo, a 2-day event where the broadest assortment of 3D printers ever assembled under one roof will be on exhibit at the Marriott Burbank Airport Hotel and Convention Center in Burbank, California. These exhibits will be complemented by more than 40 immersive educational seminars, special medical, architecture, museum and art displays, as well as key partnership and jobs-related networking opportunities for entrepreneurs, investors, professionals, educators and artists.
