About ITEx Institute

The Institute for Technological Excellence (ITEx) is the premier organization for the dissemination of knowledge and innovative ideas relating to industrial technologies. Members and stakeholders can discuss the diverse dimensions of technology management, from incremental innovation, integration of design and manufacture to technological innovation and creation of hybrid technologies. It's a forum to explore new-age technologies; focus on operational excellence, continuous improvement/ optimization techniques and think lean. This forum has been created to exchange best practices in the industry and network for career enhancement and improve the competitiveness and overall value of their organizations.

In today's fast-paced technological age, we require an enterprising mindset and multi-faceted knowledge to handle this dynamism. ITEx can provide different stakeholders to interact and learn from industry leaders on leading-edge topics by attending events and networking.

We know there is an opportunity to stay ahead of the competition by reading online articles, which are full of case studies and real-life examples of the latest technologies and operational excellence. However, to maintain interactive knowledge-building platforms we conduct annual events, technical summits, workshops and webinars on relevant topics.

ITEx is run by industry technocrats, volunteers from business and academia who relentlessly provide their support, energy and resources from their organizations to help your company prosper in today’s challenging global marketplace.
