I am not skeptical about the future of these technologies, I am skeptical about their present.

One day, maybe 10 or 20 or 50 years from now, 3D printing and home fabrication will be playing major roles in our economy and technology development, at the industrial level that has already started for prototyping.

Right now, like script kiddies and regular expressions and the nosql crowd, there are people out there who have a hammer and every problem looks like a nail.

Buy typical cable trays, and 3D print some sort of fancy colorful casings for them. You can use a variety of designs and colors for aesthetic appeal. Plus even if it doesn't look all that great it will still be "cutting edge" technology in use, which will likely appeal to your business folks. Plus you can throw a 3D printer in your budget...

Interesting idea, but given that it takes the average 3D printer hours to create something only a few inches across it's not terribly practical.

It would be more practical to hire a basket weaver... ooh... woven trays...
