A keynote address at the Digital Summit discussed the potential for 3D Printing in the retail environment.  One presenter believes that less than 10% of 3D printing will happen in the home, and makes a comparison to 2D printing where in spite of the fact that every home has a printer, still the vast majority of all printing is done by businesses for internal use, and by large printers for commercial use.

This TED-talk like presentations and an interactive Q&A panel of digital retail’s rule breakers and disruptors share keen insights, important lessons and the inspiration required to remain relevant. Hear from Jon Nordmark Co-Founder of Iterate Studio, Julie Bornstein COO of Stitch Fix, John Hauer Co-Founder and CEO of 3DLT, and Maria Thomas Former Chief Consumer Officer of SmartThings.
