León, Guanajuato, August 23, 2021. Representatives of the media tour organized by Industrial Transformation México, the Hannover Messe of Mexico and Latin America, were welcomed at a special event by the Governor of Guanajuato, Diego Sinhue Rodríguez Vallejo; the Municipal President of León, Héctor López Santillana; Hannover Fairs México CEO Bernd Rohde; the Undersecretary of Employment and Job Training for Guanajuato, Ramón Alfaro Gómez; Director of Government Relations at Schneider Electric México, Daniel Cruz; and General Coordinator of Social Communications for the State of Guanajuato, Alan Márquez.
“Guanajuato is making the transition from manufacturing to mindfacturing. We want to go from assembling vehicles to designing them. We want to lead the way in innovation. With the support of ITM, Guanajuato is seeking to become the epicenter of technological innovation worldwide,” said Governor Diego Sinhue Rodríguez Vallejo.
According to Héctor López Santillana, “ITM has afforded the government and especially companies the opportunity to familiarize themselves with, understand and acquire technology. This event will put 4.0 technologies and innovations to the service of the people of the city of León, Guanajuato and Mexico in general.”
“Guanajuato,” said Bernd Rohde, “is one of those states that is capable of achieving the impossible when it puts its mind to it. First it set itself the goal of becoming a leader on the agro-food market and today it is one of the country’s top agricultural exporters. Then it set out to conquer the automotive sector and in just a couple of decades, established itself as the automotive hub of the American continent par excellence. Now it has its sights set on spearheading mindfacturing and Industry 4.0. The stories you will hear between today and tomorrow, from robots made in Mexico to aerospace software, will confirm that Guanajuato is on the right path.”
According to Daniel Cruz, “the importance of ITM for tech companies like Schneider Electric is that it puts the latest 4.0 technologies and know-how within reach of industries and people, helping promote the digital transformation of Mexico and Guanajuato.”
Industrial Transformation México 2021 is scheduled to take place on October 6-8 at Poliforum León, Guanajuato. Some 21,000 visitors are expected to turn out for the event, which will feature 165 Mexican and international exhibitors spread over 9,000 square meters of exhibition space, a program of over 70 keynote conferences, the Futuristic Minds educational program and a Start-up Pitch area for young entrepreneurs.
