MACH-TECH - INDUSTRY DAYS 2017 - the point of reference

 

The MACH-TECH and INDUSTRY DAYS joint exhibitions concluded a four day run successful than ever before. This year, over 420 exhibitors from 19 countries took part in the professional gathering at the HUNGEXPO Budapest Fair Centre from 9-12 May. Numerous important economic announcements were made at the exhibitions.

 

At the greatest industrial gathering in Hungary, all key sectors which play a leading role in the spread of industrial digitalization, or industry 4.0, were represented at the event. Computer and other machine industry operators, robotics manufacturers, electronic firms, representatives of logistics and automation specialists were present in great numbers at the Budapest Fair Centre. 16,700 people visited the exhibitions over the course of the four days, which is an over 10 percent increase compared to the number of visitors two years ago.

According to Gábor Ganczer, CEO of HungExpo, there hasn't been such great interest in the MACH-TECH and INDUSTRY DAYS exhibitions for quite some time now, which is mainly due to the changes taking place in the industry.

At the exhibition's opening ceremony, Minister of National Economy Mihály Varga announced another HUF 15 billion framework for the Large Enterprise Investment Program (NBT). The ministry launched the program in 2015 and at the time 14 and last year 35 large enterprises received subsidies. As an analogy to Industry Days, the minister referred to our age as the weeks, months and years of (Hungarian) industry and highlighted that industry 4.0 would change our entire way of thinking. In the near future, nearly one-tenth of workplaces will be terminated or reconfigured due to digitization, which poses a serious challenge for educational and advanced training or retraining institutions.
