The official opening of the Czech National Exhibition will be attended at 10:30 by Senate President Miloš Vystrčil (ODS), Vice-President Jitka Seitlová (KDU-ČSL) and Minister of Industry and Trade Jozef Síkela (for STAN). Prime Minister Petr Fiala (ODS) will also attend the Assembly of the Union of Industry and Transport, which starts at 1:00 p.m.

The Digital Factory 2.0 exhibit will feature exhibits showing the possibilities of digitizing production. The discussion will first take place behind the scenes of the Technology Island, which will be installed by the National Center for Industry 4.0. It will include a 5G industrial network and a robot will tap the beer here. Virtual presentations are a novelty of the fair showroom, which will make it possible to show exhibits that could not be installed.
