 International Innovation and Technology Exhibition

The International Innovation and Technology Exhibition named INOTEX was established in 1390 (2012) and gradually evolved over the course of the evolutionary period, including various parts of the country's entrepreneurship environment.

The INOTEX is a platform for innovation and technology, and unlike similar exhibitions that target the supply and exchange of goods, the exhibition follows the following three goals:

1. Investments: The relationship between domestic and international investors with investors

2. Partnership and cooperation: between technology companies or domestic and foreign start-ups

3. Content Generation: Generating attractive content for different components of the ecosystem

In all of the above objectives, the two principles of networking and promotion of entrepreneurship culture are among the fundamental principles of each of these objectives.

The INOTEX seeks to introduce latest technologies to large and medium-sized industries in addition to connecting customers of technology products to their manufacturers, and also introduces investors to the opportunity to invest in technological projects or start-ups.

The first course of the exhibition was held as "Advanced Russian Technologies Exhibition" on February 20thto 22th, with the participation of 52 Russian companies in the hijab hall. The second course was held on February 25thto 27th, 2013 with the participation of 72 Russian, Ukrainian and Belarusian companies in the same place.

Due to the growing popularity of the exhibition and the request of other countries to supply their technology to Iranian companies, the exhibition became international from the third round, and the name of the International Innovation and Technology Exhibition INOTEX was registered as a brand. Also, due to the requirements of the exhibition to hold it more professionally, the venue for the exhibition was also transferred to the permanent place of Tehran's international exhibitions.

During the third, fourth, and fifth round of the exhibition, 629 technology companies from 24 different countries participated in the exhibition, which resulted in the conclusion of 129 protocols and agreements between the participants.

Eventually, in 2017 INOTEX exhibition hosted a limited number of the startups and inventors of the country experiencing the widespread acceptance of the a result of this, the seventh round of the exhibition took place in 2018 with the presence of all components of the country's ecosystem of innovation and technology.
