History of ICIT & APT Conference

The conference started in 1997 and is held bienally. Up till now 9 successful conferences were organized with over 800 guests, coming from more than 35 countries. On first five occurencies the conference name was only ICIT as International Conference on Industrial Tools. For the 2007 event we've decided to widen the conference scope to include also material processing technologies, thus changing the name from ICIT to ICIT & MPT (International Conference on Industrial Tools and Material Processing Technologies). For 2017 the name "ICIT & APT" was introduced to reflect the latest trends and advances in the industry.

A B2B brokerage event was introduced in 2009 with the main scope of providing an event to encourage participants to form new partnerships for their future R&D work.
