The Venue: Dresden Germany

Printing for Fabrication 2018 will take place at the Hilton Dresden.

The 34th in IS&T’s digital printing (NIP) conferences takes place in Dresden, Germany, the capital of the Free State of Saxony in eastern Germany. Dresden lies on the banks of the Elbe River, close to Berlin and the Czech Republic.

Saxony is home to numerous printing technology related companies and many fine institutions of higher learning including 17 Fraunhofer, 8 Leibnitz, 6 Max Planck, and 3 Helmholtz research Institutes, the Technical Universities of Chemnitz, Dresden, and Freiberg, and print-media related programs at the universities of applied sciences in Mittweida and Leipzig. It’s history as a center of research, mechanical design, engineering, and manufacturing began in the early 1700s with the first European China manufactury and has evolved to the present day.

Known as the Jewel Box, because of its gorgeous baroque and rococo city center, Dresden was virtually destroyed by controversial Allied bombings at the end of WWII. The city has been painstakingly restored to its former glory and delights with its ornate architecture, monumental museums, and river-side charm.

In the heart of the old city, just steps in one direction from the iconic Frauenkirche Dresden and in the other from Dresden Castle, the Hilton Dresden hosts the 2018 meeting.

Don’t miss the chance to convene with colleagues, learn more about printing for fabrication, and explore this stunning city.
