The agreement covers the organisation of the show for three years in Singapore, the development of new content and exhibition components for the tradeshow, marketing and publicity efforts, as well as possible areas of collaboration in terms of industry knowledge exchange and new tradeshows.
As part of Singapore‚Äôs Committee on the Future Economy report, Advanced
Manufacturing was identified as a key driver of Singapore‚Äôs future economic growth.
Industrial Transformation Asia Pacific will help to catalyse the transformation of Singapore‚Äôs manufacturing sector by providing a platform for leading manufacturers and technology providers to discover the latest technologies and concepts, and to identify potential partners for co-innovation. It also brings together global leaders to share successful case studies and best practices in Asia, which can be adopted globally.
‚ÄúThe Committee on the Future Economy had emphasised Singapore‚Äôs
commitment to develop a globally-competitive manufacturing hub. In that regard, Deutsche Messe’s partnership with SingEx Group to stage the Asian edition of the HANNOVER MESSE in Singapore is a welcome development. The event will also be a significant boost to our business events pipeline,‚ÄĚ said minister for trade and industry (industry) S Iswaran in a statement.
