INNOPROM-2016: Most Important Business Agenda Items, Largest European, Asian, and American Companies at the Exhibition, and International Golf Tournament
INNOPROM-2016, the Main International Industrial Trade Fair in Russia, will be held on July 11-14 and yet again will determine the trends in the country's industrial development, showcase cutting edge technologies produced by Russian and foreign companies, and serve as the most representative national site for the discussion of the country's industrial policies and b2b interaction with international partners.
Industrial Net, the 2016 theme, is currently the most relevant topic at all international forums. The combination of INDUSTRY + INTERNET is one of the main drivers behind the new industrial revolution that will facilitate the creation of highly efficient digital production facilities. Russia's top government officials and heads of major international industrial companies will discuss the Industrial Net theme at the main strategic session of INNOPROM.
Nowadays, industrial net stands for steady integration of material and digital worlds. It creates a new macrolevel where cutting edge technologies mold equipment, products, supply chains, and consumer expectations into a separate communication network which manages the production process and delivers top performance levels. Thus, it promotes a new and modern industrial environment that dramatically changes the competitive landscape. Therefore, companies' success now depends on how quickly they can adapt to the changes.
That much can be deduced from international research data on Industrial Internet. Leading western corporations spend 20-30% of their development budget on the implementation of industrial net technologies, and 84% of companies that contributed to the research feel that such expenses are necessary and set the development of industrial net technologies as their priority goal for next year.
INNOPROM organizers are working hard to provide the best possible conditions for business interaction. For the first time, the exhibition will beheld on working days only (from Monday to Thursday) for its participants' convenience in creating an optimal schedule of negotiations. The INNOPROM grand opening ceremony will be held in the evening of Sunday, July 10. Traditionally, event organizers will present a technology show that explains the 2016 theme, and the partner country will supply a short, but vibrant performance.
