SAMPE neXus, A Multi-Day Virtual Event, To Be Held in June

Thursday, April 8, 2021, DIAMOND BAR, CA – The Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering (SAMPE) today announced the expected launch of its new online platform, SAMPE 365, for early June.  In addition, SAMPE neXus, a 3-day event celebrating the launch of our new virtual community platform, is planned for June 29th – July 1st.

SAMPE 365 is the industry’s only perpetual community platform that serves members and the industry year-round. The platform will support, house, and centralize SAMPE’s virtual educational content such as workshops, webinars, and special events. The platform offers robust community engagement and will facilitate both self-directed and guided interaction amongst SAMPE’s industry, academia, and government network allowing for a responsive sourcing of solutions to the industry’s biggest challenges. What sets SAMPE 365 apart from standard websites is the interactive features. At any time of the day, users can reach out to each other directly, whether on a pc, tablet or phone, to see where other visitors are through an interactive global map and connect in an online community of like-minded peers.

Additional features include:

  • Educational Resources: A centralized location for sourcing content within the entire advanced materials community. Explore videos, photos, case studies, reports, valuable links and more.
  • Groups: To improve engagement, SAMPE committees, chapters, faculty advisors and sponsors will have the opportunity to host private groups within the platform.  
  • Featured Forums: SAMPE will host topical forums (i.e., Additive Manufacturing, Sustainability, Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, etc.) to engage with specialized audiences. 
  • Partner Showcases: Allows companies to highlight services, products, and solutions.
  • User Access:  
    • Members and non-members will have FREE access to the community.
    • As a value-add to SAMPE membership, some premium areas of SAMPE 365, such as specialized educational content, technical papers, discounted pricing for events, etc., will only be accessible to members. 

Updates about the virtual platform and launch event will be shared on the SAMPE website, where there is an intro video to the key features of the platform. For questions, please contact
