This tradeshow is important because Industry 4.0 is the launch pad for our transition from manufacturing to “mindfacturing”, to creating better-paid jobs and added value all round.
We are delighted to host the second edition of ITM in Guanajuato, deemed the industrial heart of Mexico due to its logistics corridor, high-tech manufacturing infrastructure and talent. In addition to a healthy balance of Mexican and international tech companies representing industry both big and small, a series of conferences, workshops and seminars will provide visitors with first-hand information on the most advanced IoT, cybersecurity, e-commerce and industrial automation (digital manufacturing) applications, among others.
Guanajuato has a strategy in place to attract high-tech investment projects that create qualified jobs. The leap to Industry 4.0 is essential if we are to adapt our production processes and ensure we are ready to take on the economic and social challenges currently facing us, from which we will no doubt emerge stronger than ever.
Diego Sinhué Rodríguez Vallejo, Governor of Guanajuato
