Industrial Transformation ASIA-PACIFIC (ITAP), an event of Constellar with international partner Deutsche Messe, returns for its 5th edition this year from 18 – 20 October at Singapore EXPO. Expected attendees include delegates from the World Economic Forum and key representation from Europe, the US and Asia driving collaboration between Industry 4.0 leaders and manufacturers in the region.
With the theme ‘Industry 4.0 for Business Sustainability’, ITAP 2022 will dive into three key dimensions: Digitalisation to accelerate productivity and quality control with lower costs; Talent and Workforce Development initiatives to equip personnel with the right skillsets for transformation; and Environmental Sustainability measures to help businesses reduce their carbon footprint and CO2 emissions.
“Advanced manufacturing technologies and innovations have played an essential role in helping many organisations overcome global supply chain disruptions and remodel their businesses in a post-pandemic landscape,” said James Boey, Senior Vice President of Markets (B2B) at Constellar. “As the leading trade event for Industry 4.0 in the region, ITAP 2022 will continue to empower manufacturing and related industries to leverage on Industry 4.0 for sustainable business development locally, regionally and globally.
Opening Ceremony Deputy Prime Minister Mr Heng Swee Keat delivered his opening remarks as the Guest-of-Honour at the ITAP 2022 opening ceremony. He launched the event alongside German Ambassador to Singapore, His Excellency Mr Norbert Riedel; and Mr Arno Reich, Senior Vice President of ITAP’s international partner Deutsche Messe.
Mr Vishal Agarwal, Senior Partner at McKinsey & Company, set the pace for the three-day event with an industry leadership update on the global manufacturing landscape. Keynote speaker Ms Neo Gim Huay, Managing Director of the Centre for Nature and Climate at the World Economic Forum, addressed how manufacturers can tap on cross-sectoral collaboration to transform value chains and achieve net zero.
Both Ms Neo and Mr Agarwal joined the fireside chat moderated by Global & Digital Futurist Charlie Ang to discuss emerging trends in the region and key developments that shaped the sector in the next decade.
