Poland: ITM – Europe meets in Poznań

Page: 2/2

The thematic scope is also extended by a substantial schedule of accompanying events related to metal treatment and new technologies. Based on the character of those events, they can be divided into two groups: practical and theoretical. The first of them – particularly interesting as they offer an ability to see example applications of the new technologies up close, in real industrial environments – include, among others, the Second Metal Casting Forum Focast (7-10 June), the first 3D Solutions fair (8-9 June), as well as the Skills Range (7-10 June), as part of which the latest surface painting and varnishing technologies will be demonstrated.

The synergy created by the mutual effects of related sectors will also be leveraged by the parallel Subcontracting Industrial Cooperation Fair and accompanying matchmaking Subcontracting ITM Meetings, which present an opportunity to make new business contacts between contractors looking for subcontractors and development companies focused on carrying out industrial works.

Experts at the heart of the debate

For several years, organisers of industrial fairs in Poland – following the example of other European countries – have attempted to diversify the fair offer more and more, also enhancing the offer with seminar and conference cycles dedicated to topics related to the thematic scope of the fair.

ITM Poland also follows this trend, offering its exhibitors and visitors a substantial schedule of lectures and debates dedicated to materials and techniques used for metal treatment (among others, the Technical Forum of Contractual Steel and the "Aluminium. Business-Trends-Technologies" conference) as well as to technologies which shape the future of the Polish and the global industrial sector.


The latter issue will be the centre of attention of the "MM Speakers Corner" forum, organised on the 10th of June 2016 by the "MM Magazyn Przemysłowy" magazine. The debate will be divided into four discussion panels, as part of which the invited guests – executives from industrial companies and independent trade experts – will discuss the structure of a Smart Factory, the role of the Internet of Things in management and production, energetic efficiency in industry and the issue of managing human resources at production plants. The debate will be moderated by Radosław Brzózka – a TV journalist and an enthusiast of technological innovations.
