YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

The Mahoning County Convention and Visitors Bureau is providing $20,000 for a business conference coming to Youngstown later this month.

The four-day event is focused on 3-D printing and additive manufacturing.

It will take place at America Makes, the 3-D manufacturer in downtown Youngstown.

The gathering is expected to draw 400 participants from across the country. “We're excited to partner with this. We think it will benefit the community greatly. It will showcase Youngstown and possibly bring some economic development to our area,” said Linda Macala, Mahoning County Convention and Visitors Bureau.

The sponsorship is being funded with hotel and bed tax revenue.
