This year’s motto is: Transforming People Towards an Innovative Industry. At ASI INNOVATION WEEK, which takes place virtually from 7 to 11 November, national and international experts and speakers have the opportunity to share experiences and identify trends through panel discussions, conferences, networking, breakout sessions and other special activities.

This meeting has become a movement in which transformative ideas are share and innovative companies evolving through emerging technologies are showcased.
