Conference director's message

The past 11 international conferences from 2010 to 2020 were largely attended by participants from different countries, different technical fields and different industries. The rich technical programs of all past events included a wide variety of works related to applications, developments and research on 3D/4D body scanning and processing from all over the world. The conferences were accompanied by parallel exhibitions featuring live demonstrations of 3D body scanning equipment and solutions. Various manufacturers had chosen our events for presenting and announcing world and international premieres.

The large success of the 10th edition of 2019 with about 270 attendees, 80 presentations and 28 exhibitors was followed in 2020 with a reduced event which took place online because of the particular situation caused by COVID-19. Nevertheless, about 150 international participants could attend remotely the 2-days 3DBODY.TECH 2020 online conference and exhibition, with about 60 online presentations and 10 virtual exhibitors. Very appreciated was the increased flexibility offered by the online format of the event.

This year, with its 12th international conference and exhibition, 3DBODY.TECH will continue its role as the world leading technical and scientific event dedicated to 3D body scanning and processing technologies.

3DBODY.TECH 2021 will be held as hybrid event with onsite conference and exhibition taking place in Lugano and added online content. We will combine the advantages of both formats into an unique event and offer similar opportunities for both onsite and online participants. We will make treasure of the positive experience gained last year.

We would be delighted to welcome you at the 3DBODY.TECH 2021 Conference & Expo, as attendee, speaker, exhibitor, and I am looking forward to meet you in October, personally in Lugano or virtually on the online conference platform.

Dr. Nicola D'Apuzzo, Director of 3DBODY.TECH Conference & Expo, Switzerland
