IAC expo and conference organised by Chemtech Foundation and Jasubhai Media are one of the most sought-after forum where leaders and companies of national and international repute participate in large number.

The Indian automation industry currently has a turnover of over USD 930 million. A newer business model in manufacturing connecting the process or plant floors to business systems through Digital Control Systems (DCS) is evolving in India. The industry is expected to grow at an annual rate of 20 to 25 per cent, powered by a boost in demand for automation.

Industry Automation & Control 2009 was the first event from Chemtech to bring together the leading players from Industrial and Process Automation, Instrumentation and Industrial Electronics sectors.


The IAC & Refinery World Conference 2017 organised during Chemtech World Expo 2017 in Mumbai on the theme – “Smart Refining and Automation for Green Future” and IAC South Conference 2013 organised during Chemtech World Expo – South, 2013 on the theme – “Automation for Process Reliability” earned immense accolades to Chemtech Foundation. We appreciate the efforts of our chairmen – Mr Rajkumar Ghosh, Former Director (Refinery), IOCL & President Reliance Industries Limited and Mr Prasad Panicker, Executive Director, Kochi Refinery, BPCL, who along with the CAB members conceptualised and directed the conferences.
