Impetus for digitalisation: at the trade fair stand and in the host country Mexico


Learn, Build, Operate and Inspire: these are the four segments into which our 2018 trade fair presentation is divided. Because digitalisation starts with a learning process. In Mexico as well as at our trade fair stand. With its 400 employees in Mexico City and 14 sales offices, Festo has been consistently supporting the emerging digital transformation in the host country for over 40 years.


At the trade fair stand, the learning phase is followed by our new digital tools which will make you as a machine builder faster and more productive – the keyword is shorter time to market. We then show you and your end users new opportunities to use smart digitalisation, such as condition monitoring, in the operating phase. Be inspired! Our bionic projects and Future Concepts provide a look into the future.
