A brand new industrial automation show in Central China
In recent years, Wuhan has conscientiously implemented the “Made in China 2025” initiative, and its industry has maintained a healthy and rapid development. Wuhan’s industrial added value accounts for approximately 2% and 36% of the national and provincial total respectively. A group of key enterprises and industries have significant influence in the country. The main indicators of industrial development and the level of sustainable development are taking lead among the 15 sub-provincial cities.

The organizers stated that Wuhan is becoming the third pole of China's smart manufacturing, and it is high time that IARS sets foot in Wuhan as all conditions are perfectly suitable. This year’s IARS showcased the innovative achievements and high technologies of the smart manufacturing industry in central China. It also created a perfect platform for domestic and foreign manufacturing brands to promote industry interaction and professional networking in Central China for the first time. It can be said that, on the basis of assisting the manufacturing enterprises in central China to make innovations, IARS has played a leading role in promoting the industrial transformation and upgrading in Central China.

IARS combined the industrial fundamentals and industrial characteristics of Central China to forge a “high-quality exhibition” in the intelligent manufacturing area highlighting intelligent hardware based on automated products and technologies, intelligent equipment based on industrial robots, and core components of industrial robots, as well as the intelligent manufacturing solutions targeted at industrial application. Major auto and robot exhibitors actively demonstrated their innovations and upgrading in the face of the macro trend of manufacturing intelligence.
