The 15th edition of A&T is going digital

4 February 2021
The exhibition dedicated to new technologies and industry 4.0, traditionally hosted at Oval Lingotto, becomes an online event.

From February 10 to 12, visitors and exhibitors at A&T will be able to meet online. In addition to the digital version of the usual experiences among the stands and corridors of the Oval, it will also be possible to take interactive tours of the premises of factories that have already completed their 4.0 evolution. According to the organizers, 86% of Italian industrial SMEs during 2021 are planning investments in the digital field.

The 2020 edition was one of the last major events in the Turin area, before the start of the pandemic: more than 16,000 visitors for over 400 exhibitors from the industrial sectors Aerospace, Food, Automation, Automotive, Distribution, Electronics, Energy, Pharmaceutical-Cosmetic-Chemical, General Industry, GDO, Mechanics, Plastics and Wine & Beverage.

The focus in 2021 will be Design, Manufacturing, Digitization, Reliability and Logistics. During the initiative will also be awarded the Innovation Award 4.0, for which will compete companies, startups, research institutions and universities. 

The CEO of A&T, Luciano Malgaroli has anticipated that also for future editions the choice will fall on a hybrid form for the event, just to better represent the heart of the initiative. He also added that the intention is absolutely not to depersonalize the relationship between the participants: "There will be a way to interact, in a dynamic way. And it will be possible to use a lot of information, in three days of great sharing. In particular, the special themes that will be addressed will be sustainable automotive, aerospace, eco-packaging and additive manufacturing".

Dario Gallina, President of Camera di commercio di Torino, also praised the value of the initiative for our city: "There are many pieces to put together to give a great opportunity to the territory and in this, a showcase like A&T is essential to attract investment and tell everyone what is happening here in our area".

"Right now we need to increase export quotas, since in some areas of the world demand has restarted and we are beginning to see the exit of the tunnel. To be ready, however, we need to strengthen the supply chains, whatever sector we are talking about, so as to develop long-term innovative projects and not for opportunistic reasons. Only by innovating can we continue to be competitive and therefore create jobs, and Turin has a long tradition in this field," added Giorgio Marsiaj, President of Unione Industriale di Torino.
