On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee, it is a great honor of me to welcome you to Daegu, Republic of Korea for the 18th TCI Global Conference - TCI 2015.

  For the past 50 years, KICOX has been the backbone of economic development in Korea.
We have reinforced the competitiveness of the industrial complex by consistently supporting the tenant companies in advancing their technology, management, and business environment,  which has created an innovative industrial complex that is at the forefront of the global and local industrial trend. This has created a mecca for state-of-the-art technology, where people and technology create a synergy that elevates a once simple production business culture to new heights and new possibilities.

  The venue city Daegu is the heart of industrial development for the region, particularly for electro fusion/convergence, mechatronics, mechanical transport, and is a leader of state-of-the-art industry in Korea. Furthermore, Daegu is also best suited to exhibit the success of the industrial clusters concept, and to exchange information and knowhow with increasing interest in further development of industrial clusters in the neighboring areas such as Gumi, Ulsan, and Changwon.

  TCI 2015 will be held under the main theme of "Clusters in the Creative Economy". I wish you have a chance to visit Daegu, Korea. Make dynamic networking, share your ideas with scholars, experts and diverse practitioners from all over the world . For this wonderful TCI conference to happen, we are preparing various programs, technical sessions as well as cluster visits during the conference. In addition, a variety of social events, tour programs will be ready for you to enjoy our beautiful country and culture. We are looking forward to seeing you in Daegu, Korea in 2015.
