As regards the Digital Agenda, I believe Industrial Transformation MEXICO will help familiarize our entrepreneurs, company owners, students, academics and citizens in general with the most advanced digital tools on the market by providing them with first-hand information on the latest applications related to the Internet of Things, cybersecurity, e-commerce, the automation of industrial processes (digital manufacturing) and the like.
Following Mexico’s successful participation as the first Latin American partner country in the 2018 Hannover Messe industrial fair, I am particularly gratified to learn about the launch of Industrial Transformation MEXICO this year.
CONCAMIN promotes events that generate industrial know-how and build on the sector’s strengths so it can take a more decisive lead in innovation. The decision to hold the ITM fair and the Annual Industrialists Meeting (RAI) at the same time goes to prove just how important industrial transformation is becoming in Mexico.
The Guanajuato Digital Agenda will transform the state into a truly digital economy, with interactive resources that facilitate the sharing of ideas, experiences and know-how, and public policies designed to achieve a Guanajuato with innovative, vanguard technology and a competitive digital economy.
Its broad educational program will establish Industrial Transformation MEXICO as an important forum for disseminating information on the Mexican dual education model, helping attract more young people to this ambitious training program.
The ITM fair will be one of the largest exhibitions on digital transformation that Mexico has ever seen. The event will feature round tables, conferences, courses and workshops where international experts will address topics of interest related to Industry 4.0, such as machine security, IT-security, predictive maintenance, electric mobility, sustainable mobility technologies, smart cities and many other issues.
We are excited to be able to work shoulder to-shoulder with ITM and bring the latest in robotics and automation technologies to the event. These are the technologies that will help Mexico progress more rapidly in advanced manufacturing.
ITM is an opportunity to shore up Siemens’ role as a leading company that has contributed to Mexico’s development with solutions that transform and have a positive impact on society. For the last 125 years, we have been harnessing the potential of Mexican industry with innovative technology for its automation, digitalization and energization, with a view to fostering the development of the domestic economy and improving the wellbeing of the Mexican people.
Innovation is the main pillar of our industrial policy proposal. There can be no denying industrial transformation is strategic to the country’s development. We believe the best approach is to fully embrace Industry 4.0, with all the obstacles and challenges it poses. We need to reinvent ourselves and root our sector in cybersecurity, automation, artificial intelligence and robotics, among other innovations.
Industrial Transformation MEXICO consists of a tradeshow, conference and educational program tied together by the overarching themes of smart manufacturing and digital transformation in Mexico. The exhibit program features four main display categories – Metalworking, Automation, Robotation and Motion, Digital Factory / ICT and Smart Logistics – as well as areas for live demonstrations and one-on-one consultations. The event serves industry sectors such as aerospace, automotive, electronics, health care, food and beverage, metalworking, packaging systems, and steel and chemical processing.
