IESS is considered to be the largest sourcing show organised within India for the engineering sector, particularly for MSMEs. It recently emerged as the most-favoured global destination for sourcing engineering goods and services from India. As exchange of knowledge and technology development is at the core of efficient production and exports, IESS lays greater emphasis on these two areas. The show has turned out to be a meeting point not only for buyers and sellers but also for exploring and dissemination of available technology in India and outside. A signature event of its kind, (IESS) is the latest concept in marketing ‚ÄúBrand India‚ÄĚ across the world. After 5 successful stints in Mumbai, we took IESS to South India in Chennai this March 2017 with the theme ‚ÄėSmart Technology for Smart Engineering‚Äô.

Intervention, Innovation and Upgradation can paint a new picture of Indian Engineering Industry. Engineering contributes 25% of India‚Äôs exports ,but accounts for only 1.5% of Global Engineering Exports. India needs to focus on achieving leadership in sub segments of engineering categories which will improve India‚Äôs share in Global trade from 1.5% to 12 %. India majorly exports medium skill and technology intensive (46 percent) products, while it depends on imports for high skill technology intensive items. Advanced manufacturing technology, Automation and 3-D printing were all sought for during the Technology Sessions at the previous IESS edition in 2015 where our objective was to create awareness among the industry on the best practices in the field of manufacturing. EEPC India has successfully organised series of Technology Meets across the countries under the aegis of Department of Commerce to emphasise the need for Smart Technology for Smart Engineering! …as a prelude to the 4th Industrial Revolution.

IESS VI with its ‚ÄėBiometric Inauguration‚Äô, Exclusive Technology Meets, Technology Pavilion made a ‚Äėsmart match‚Äô of the Buyers and Sellers upholding Indian Engineering Brilliance. We thank all our Patrons in making this event happen.

Let’s get ready for IESS VII!
