ITM INDUSTRY EUROPE - back to the meetings!


The first industry event after a several-month break is approaching. On 31 August ITM INDUSTRY EUROPE will open the season of industry meetings.

How do companies and partners assess the past year and the period of virtual interactions? What do they particularly expect from the Fair? What are the organisers planning? We know the answers.

Preparations for the ITM INDUSTRY EUROPE Fair are "on the home stretch" now, and they are accompanied by optimistic market analyses.

Industry records

The PMI index, reflecting the moods of the industry, was at a record level of 59.4 points in June. Polish industry is coming out of the crisis with new, unprecedented dynamics. According to the latest survey by IHS Markit, forecasts of entrepreneurs from the Polish manufacturing sector regarding production volume in the coming year have also improved.

These are important forecasts for us. We are preparing the event with great responsibility, bearing in mind that over the years we have raised the bar exceptionally high. It is extremely important for us to provide exhibitors and visitors with the appropriate business quality of the event. Although last year we were not able to organise fairs, we put that time to good use, for example by adding a new tool to our offer: an online meetings platform. It gives companies additional opportunities to gain new contacts and win international markets. This solution has met with great recognition among our exhibitors - says Anna Lemańska-Kramer, ITM INDUSTRY EUROPE Fair Director.

Industry Next – a remedy for the crisis

The Fair is not only an extensive exhibition and machinery show, but it also comprises an interesting programme of events. The hybrid formula will include e.g. the already announced Industry Next meeting. The event will be dedicated to support programmes and funds aimed at the development of Polish industry in the new reality. It will also be a place to exchange experience and discuss the application of Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things solutions by Polish and global leaders.

We will focus on financing of industrial transformation of Polish companies. We will also discuss robotisation and automation as an important support element for production, especially in times uncertain for business. There will also be the topic of the Polish Digital Valley discussed, which is an important pillar for the development of the Industry 4.0 idea in Poland. We have great speakers from leading institutions and industry organisations, as well as experts from originating from companies that can be honestly described as giants of digitisation - adds Anna Lemańska-Kramer.

What are the exhibitors preparing?

Direct contact with new products and product premieres is, for many visitors, one of the most important aspects of participation in the Fair.

Some of the exhibitors are already revealing what they intend to show during the upcoming edition. We plan to show both robots and machine tools. We also wish to present new products, such as the FANUC CRX cobot, whose premiere took place during the deep "lockdown" and so far it has not been presented to a wider audience at a large fair event - announces Mateusz Amroziński from FANUC POLSKA.

At the BOSCHERT POLSKA fair stand, you will have an opportunity to see the flagship products, i.e. the CNC press brake and the CNC guillotine. Apart from that, we will also show a compact solution for burring and grinding metal sheets made by Timesavers, a CNC sheet metal rolling mill made by Faccin, one of many models of hydraulic presses made by Sicmi, and of course a wide range of tooling for press brakes and tool punch machinesA - reveals Wojciech Chudy.

Traditionally, the Polish Foundry Association will organise the FOUNDRY Theme Park as part of the FOCAST Foundry Forum.

The Fair will last from 31 August to 3 September 2021, at the fairgrounds of MTP Poznań Expo. This year's extension of the traditional ITM INDUSTRY EUROPE offer is also a dedicated virtual space, a new place to establish business relations: an online meetings platform.
