Realising the Vision of an Innovative Nation

Back in it’s 31st year, ITEX 2020 in Malaysia is geared up once again as the region’s professional marketplace for ideas and inventions with the mission to realise the vision of an innovative nation, or InnoNation 4.0 – a term coined to reflect the aspiration of a nation to propel forward in the new economy.

ITEX remains the leading platform in bringing both sides to the table – innovators, inventors and researchers, get to converge with investors, manufacturers and industry players.

It has since become the region’s most well-known international platform for inventions and innovations, with last year’s event chalking up impressive turnouts with over 13,000 visitors from 56 countries, and 15 product categories featuring more than 1,000 inventions. Known as a prestigious platform, ITEM is recognised and accredited by the Malaysian Research Assessment Instrument (MYRA), under the purview of the Ministry of Education (MoE).

The ITEX series remains the best launchpad for ideas to be turned into commercially viable realities, being the ideal meeting point for inventors and innovators to meet with investors and industry players for collaboration opportunities.
