SPI, represented by Andre Almeida, participated in the Hannover Messe, the world’s leading trade fair for industry, on April 23rd and 24th. This global event showcased cutting-edge technologies aimed at fostering a connected and climate-neutral industry, while also serving as a platform for global policy discussions involving industry, government, science, and social representatives.

Andre’s presence at the fair was in collaboration with the South East Asia IP SME Helpdesk, highlighting its commitment to fostering innovation and supporting small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in navigating intellectual property challenges in the Southeast Asian region.

Throughout the two-day event, Andre engaged with industry leaders, policymakers, and stakeholders to exchange insights and explore opportunities for collaboration in advancing sustainable and technology-driven solutions for industry. Discussions centred around leveraging innovative technologies to enhance industrial processes, promote sustainability, and address climate challenges.

In addition to these discussions, considerable attention was given to Intellectual Property issues in South East Asia, reflecting the growing importance of protecting IP rights for companies expanding their operations into this region. Entrepreneurs were encouraged to leverage the South East Asia IP SME Helpdesk, which offers comprehensive information about the IP structure in the region. This valuable tool is readily available to assist entrepreneurs in navigating the complexities of intellectual property laws and regulations, thereby facilitating their business expansion efforts in Southeast Asia.

 By participating in the Hannover Messe, SPI reaffirmed its dedication to driving innovation and facilitating partnerships that contribute to the advancement of sustainable and connected industries on a global scale.
