Organised by Deutsche Messe AG and Hannover Milano Fairs Shanghai, MWCS 2019 and IAS 2019 run from 17th to 21st September. This year CIIF’s overall theme was: “Intelligence & Interconnection – Empowering New Industrial Development.” MWCS reportedly covered 80,000 m2 and IAS 2019 covered 70,000 m2 of exhibition area showcasing industrial automation, electrical systems, robotics and IT information solutions.
Gary Liu, managing director of Hannover Milano Fairs Shanghai stated, “The development of CNC machine tool industry in China has entered a stage of medium-scale industrialization and high-grade small batch production. The overall industry boasts strong international competitiveness. From this year’s exhibition, it can be found that many enterprises are expanding their product lines and improving their R&D and innovation capabilities. At the same time, they are also accelerating the development of production equipment towards informatization, automation and intensification in response to the fierce market competition.”
