SECOND EDITION DESCRIPTION
The second edition of the fair attracted 10,500 visitors to Warsaw Industry Week.
Among the guests, there were nearly 10 thousand management representatives, owners of small and large manufacturing companies, designers of equipment and complete manufacturing lines, specialists in technological processes, chief mechanics and automation experts.
Warsaw Industry Week covered nearly twice the area it did the previous year, i.e. 40 thousand sq m.
In two halls, 380 companies and over 500 brands were presented. That made the event a platform for business, an opportunity to exchange valuable experience and hold meetings with trade partners.
The huge space of the fair allowed to combine many different elements: conferences, workshops, company presentations as well as promotional events for manufacturers and distributors.
The most important part of the agenda was the Industry 4.0 Instruments Conference. The conference agenda was coordinated by the Advisory Board composed of leaders in different branches of industry. The main topics were centred around the Industrial Internet of Things and broadly-defined Industry 4.0 concept in the environment of Polish businesses. Other themes were also present. Discussions of the panellists representing companies with Polish capital (WobiT; ASTOR) and foreign companies (Siemens; FANUC) allowed the listeners to gain insight into different perspectives and to assess the ongoing changes.
Participants of panel discussions included representatives of the Ministry of Development, EY and Warsaw University of Technology. Stefan Życzkowski, President of ASTOR, discussed changes in value chains and the need to adapt business models to those – which is particularly important for industrial companies.
The three days saw many fruitful business discussions and newly-formed contacts. The exhibitors and visitors noted great progress in development and potential for building the largest event of this nature in Poland.
