León, GTO, October 6, 2021. Today marked the opening of the third edition of Industrial Transformation México, the Hannover Messe of Mexico and Latin America, which brought together the country´s leading industrialists, the public and academic sectors, and 100 exhibitors showcasing the latest Industry 4.0 technological innovations, all under one roof.

The opening of ITM 2021 was preceded by Industry Night, a technological spectacle dedicated to the country´s most prominent industrialists, while the presentation of the prestigious Itzamná Innovation Prize acknowledged the brilliant minds that make innovation, the promotion of digitalization and the implementation of Industry 4.0 possible in Mexico.

The event, which also served to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Industry 4.0, was attended by the Governor of Guanajuato, Diego Sinhue Rodríguez Vallejo; Chair of the Deutsche Messe Managing Board Jochen Köckler; CONCAMIN President José Abugaber; León Municipal President Héctor López Santillana; German Ambassador to Mexico, His Excellency Peter Tempel; Mitsubishi Electric Automation CEO in Mexico, Felipe Rivera; President and CEO of Schneider Electric Mexico and Central America, Enrique González Haas; and President and CEO of Siemens Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean, Alejandro Preinfalk.

Governor Sinhue Rodríguez thanked “the mangers of Hannover Messe for trusting in the strengths of Guanajuato, but above all, for the vision of the future they share with our state. I am confident that the best of this partnership we have built over the last three years is yet to come; a partnership that has marked a before and an after for Guanajuato as regards public policies to promote innovation and generate know-how.”

According to Rivera, “The landmark ten years of Industry 4.0 was the perfect opportunity to celebrate Mitsubishi Electric´s 100th anniversary in Mexico and show the country´s industrialists, machinery manufacturers and investors what we have done to perfect our manufacturing processes over the last century.”

As in 2019, ITM 2021 was inaugurated with a digital ribbon-cutting ceremony that featured Industry 4.0 technologies, illustrating the momentum the Fourth Industrial Revolution has gained in the country.

During his welcome address, Köckler said that, “By virtue of the partnership between the private initiative, government and academia, the third edition of Industrial Transformation México has set itself the goal of contributing to the reactivation of business in the industrial sector in the wake of the pandemic and continuing to lay the groundwork that will help turn Mexico into a driver of mindfacturing and innovation worldwide.”

The first day of ITM 2021 also featured the Pacific Alliance Sustainable Development Summit, the beginning of the ITM conference program, whose four main themes were “Ten Years of Industry 4.0,” “Smart Mobility,” “Energy of the Future” and “ITMujeres,” and the first day of the Futuristic Minds program, which will take place parallel to ITM 2021 at the Explora Science Center.
