The International Invention, Innovation & Technology Exhibition (ITEX) is an annual exhibition which features the best innovations from Asia and beyond. Initiated by the Malaysian Invention and Design Society (MINDS) in 1989 as MINDEX, it became ITEX when C.I.S Network Sdn Bhd came aboard as a partner in 1991. Today, celebrating its 30th year, ITEX is the region’s leading exhibition to showcase new inventions, technologies and products, targeted at securing investment, manufacturing and commercialisation prospects and partners. The event features exhibitions across 23 categories related to innovation or technology which aim to make everyday life easier. ITEX is Malaysia’s longest-running invention, innovation and technology exhibition.
It is held concurrently with the World Young Inventors Exhibition, incorporating the Asian Young Inventors Exhibition and the Malaysian Young Inventors Exhibition. This component aims to encourage STEM education among primary and secondary school students.
