In May, Ipack-Ima, Greenplaplast, Print4All and Intralogistica Italia will be back together. A systemic choice anticipated by an International Summit, which on 23 March will describe trends, policies and benchmarks in environmental sustainability and artificial intelligence.
Four events, Ipack-Ima, Greenplast, Print4All and Intralogistica Italia with a single objective – to present the market with the best of instrumental mechanics and discuss the most innovative solutions dedicated to the various industrial production sectors. The Innovation Alliance will be back at Fiera Milano from 3 to 6 May – a supply chain exhibition ranging from the most sustainable solutions for the processing of plastic and paper to their graphic customization, from food and non-food processing and packaging to the handling and storage of goods.
A summit for growth in the circular economy
With two months to go until the event, the partners of The Innovation Alliance, in collaboration with Fiera Milano, have decided to organize a Summit aimed at stakeholders from all industrial sectors. This is a fundamental step forward, designed to initiate a shared reflection on the circular economy, a conceptual framework within which the theme of sustainable development, a key element in the evolution of industrial models, fits in.
Organised by Business International, a division of Fiera Milano specialising in the conception and realisation of events and training, the Circular Economy Summit – Artificial Intelligence and Circular Economy Models: Towards a Regenerative Industrial Ecosystem will be held on 23 March, starting at 9.30 am central European Time, entirely in digital format, and can be followed, according to user preference, in both Italian and English. The four hour event agenda can be downloaded.
A working event through the intervention of international keynote speakers and a round table involving CEOs from the main industrial and distribution sectors, will explore the interaction between two major emerging trends, Artificial Intelligence and the Circular Economy, and how AI represents the most powerful boost to accelerate the transition towards a new model of production and consumption.
The aim is to inspire reflection on the urgency of a virtuous ecosystem and a non-linear economy, in which today’s goods can represent tomorrow’s resources and which is based on the principle of ‘closing the loop,’ the closing of the life cycles of products, services, waste, materials, water and energy.
