The Impact of 3D on Retail - PowerPoint PPT Presentation

  • Uploaded on

On 28/2 our managing partner, Alain Thys was the closing speaker of the FutuRetail event which took place at Google's offices in London. Pushed to come with "something innovative and different", he tried to bring a level-headed view on the ways he believes 3D Printing will affect retail in the coming 5 years.

Many in the audience tended to agree, and if you do to (or not) feel free to leave your comments. Also, should you wish to look at the opportunities for 3D printing in your business (retail or B2B) do not hesitate to get in touch :-)
