Industry 4.0 is no longer a buzzword. It has arrived. Ignore it, companies and organisations shall be left behind, and slowly perish. Now is the time to understand and engineer the dynamics of i4.0 and its ecosystem.

The MTCE2019 is specifically dedicated to equip local talents, start-ups, SMEs, researchers, technologists and technopreneurs on issues, disruptions, future trends and interconnected technologies crucial to pilot and pivot the fourth industrial revolution.

At MTCE2019 cutting-edge technology and new business fundamentals intersect and merge – diving deep into interconnected technologies.
You will develop new understanding through in-depth discussions, sharing of emerging best practises and visualising the future.
