ITEX 2019: Reinvention Through Digital Disruption

2019 marks the 30th installation of the International Invention, Innovation and Technology Exhibition (ITEX) in Malaysia. The internationally renowned exhibition is poised to celebrate three decades of being the region’s professional marketplace for ideas and inventions. The exhibition reflects upon technological or digital inventions having been the basis for disruptions, especially in the last decade, with the convergence of manufacturing and industrial practices with digital technology in the advent of Industry 4.0.

As such, ITEX carries on the tradition of being the ideal launchpad for numerous inventive disruptions, including innovations that reflect the burgeoning growth of digital era. From its humble beginnings as a local exhibition in 1989, the ITEX series organised by the Malaysian Invention and Design Society (MINDS) have since become the region’s most visible international platform for inventions and innovations, with a wide range of classifications featuring more than 1,000 inventions and attracting visitors from 50 countries in 2018. The ITEX series sets the stage for the confluence of inventors and innovators with investors, propelling ideas forward into commercially viable realities.

The Evolution of ITEX

The bloom of today’s success has its roots from the seeds planted in the past. Similarly as ITEX celebrates its 30th anniversary, it is vital to recap that the driving force behind ITEX is MINDS, headed by its Founding President, Academician Emeritus Professor Tan Sri Datuk Dr Augustine S H Ong. MINDS initially created the Malaysian Invention, Innovation and Technology Exhibition (MINDEX) in 1989, which subsequently evolved into ITEX, the premier national invention and innovation exhibition with an international platform, further cementing MINDS’ role as the national society for Malaysian inventors.
