Expanding its presence in the manufacturing and technology sectors, Messe Frankfurt Trade Fairs India recently announced the launch of Smart Industry Solutions India December 13-15 2017 in Mumbai. Targeting end-to-end solutions that will address the needs of smart manufacturing, this new exhibition format will cover future factory, automation systems, technology and solutions, as well as hydraulics & pneumatics.
While Smart Industry Solutions India will cover the realm of Industry 4.0 – where futuristic innovations in engineering are expected to change the shop floor, SPS Automation India, Motek India and Control India fairs will be presented in a new avatar to cover automation systems, technology and solutions under this umbrella.
India is seeking technology partners to accelerate domestic manufacturing and improve their technology infrastructure. With the government‘s impetus on developing industrial corridors and smart cities along with rolling out major programs such as “Make in India,” “Digital India” etc., there is a sharp innovation and technology led movement in the country.
The national manufacturing policy is another strong step towards development of manufacturing industry. Vertical specific initiatives are being put in place by the government to enhance sector wise growth and production capacities in automotive, F&B, electricals and electronics, packaging, plastics and rubber, chemicals etc. Targeting the automation and smart manufacturing needs across these core sectors, Smart Industry Solutions India will prepare the country for the next stage of industrial revolution.
Raj Manek, executive director and board member of Messe Frankfurt Asia Holding Ltd said: “Factories of the future are moving from automation to autonomy today. The technology is here but a transformation like this can come about only if manufacturers get the exposure and are ready to master advanced industrial automation concepts for their fields. Working on this positive feedback from our customers to create a focused and end-to-end solution providing platform that would address the needs of the industry, we decided to expand the scope of the fair through this new format which will create a convergence point for technology experts and manufacturing decision makers across all sectors.”
The trade fair, also comprising a conference, will cover a diverse mix of subjects, services and solutions in order to meet India’s demand as one of the fastest growing markets for automation smart manufacturing solutions in the world. The organizer also believes that the new format will redefine the existing technology fairs – SPS Automation India, Motek India and Control India and benefit the exhibitors by bringing a larger and more targeted participation from diverse visitor segments.
Recognizing this vision, Smart Industry Solutions India has drawn immense support from the game-changers in the industry both who can bring these technologies to the fore as well as well as attract the right segment of trade professionals and decision makers.
