Grand Rapids offers Grand

Tours of local model shops and sites of interest are the reason why our Conferences are locatedin different parts of the country. There's really no other way to get an up-close, behind-the-scenes look at these amazing locations. Though they're considered "optional" tours, we think they're essential!

Theme: Prototyping the Future



Every APMM Conference is unique!

This year's theme and logo reflect the multitude of processes, techniques, and talents that make model makers and making different. Model makers are the "Swiss army knives" of the making world, employing many different methods to get their jobs done. We'll be taking a fresh look at the "Talents" and "Skills" that are essential to success. Watch for more on this topic in the coming weeks!

Hope to see you in Grand Rapids in March...
