ITEX 2017 was organised by the Malaysian Invention and Design Society (MINDS) on 11 - 13 May 2017 at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC).  The primary objective of this exhibition is to cultivate the ability to think critically - a quality separating innovators from followers.  Awards were conferred to inventions that were judged based on the following criteria: novelty; inventiveness; usefulness and application; presentation and demonstration; market and commercial potential; and environmental friendliness.
