IMTEX Connect 2021: Manufacturing and Machine Tool Show on the Digital Platform
Business is bouncing back sharply following the coronavirus induced lockdowns and the prolonged economic slowdown. Buying sentiments have been strengthened with encouraging orders and sales in recent months. Industries are transforming and becoming agile with optimization of resources and strategizing their business plans to become resilient. Aided by Government policies, industries are actively scouting for opportunities in newer segments.
Keeping in view the market conditions and changing dynamics in business, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers’ Association (IMTMA) is organizing the first ‘IMTEX Connect’ on digital platform from 21-27 January 2021. IMTEX Connect 2021 will connect manufacturing technology providers and machine tool builders with user industries from various countries. The show will be a pre-cursor to IMTEX 2021 & Tooltech 2021 to be held at Bangalore International Exhibition Centre (BIEC) in June 2021.
Speaking about the potential of IMTEX Connect, Indradev Babu, President, IMTMA said, “With the economic measures extended by the Government of India to the manufacturing community, industries are keen to adopt new-age technologies to keep pace with technological advancements. IMTEX Connect will be a medium for user industries to digitally explore the technologies that would be on display at IMTEX 2021.”
Concurring with Mr. Babu’s views, V. Anbu, Director General & CEO, IMTMA-BIEC said, “IMTEX Connect will also be an opportunity for machine tool builders to focus on champion sectors such as automotive, aerospace and defence, electric and electronics, railways, medical, etc., which hold immense possibilities to drive growth in manufacturing.
IMTEX Connect 2021 will enable machine tool manufacturers from various countries to renew their connections with IMTEX visitors. The show will create opportunities for exhibitors and visitors across geographical regions to connect, network and join hands for mutual business benefits.
