Despite the challenging economic climate ahead of the SPS anniversary exhibition, the outlook for the trade show is once again very positive and testifies to the importance of the exhibition for smart and digital automation.
Some 1,650 automation technology providers from all over the world are expected as exhibitors in Nuremberg from 26 – 28 November 2019. The exhibition will showcase current products and solutions in industrial automation as well as trend-setting technologies of the future.
Wide range of automation products and services on offer
Exhibition visitors will benefit from the wide range of products and services offered by national and international automation and digitalization providers, and within one day will still be able to gain a complete overview of the market.
This explains why 71% of the visitors recorded by exhibition organizer Mesago to the automation trade show are day-visitors. 7% of visitors conduct their technology research over the full three days of the event. Last year, 27.6% (18,154) of the visitors came from outside of Germany. 47,546 of the previous year’s visitors came from within the country. The positive impressions from the trade show were shared by these visitors:
“For me, the SPS is the best trade show around – a must for anyone working in automation technology,” commented Wolfgang Lex, Technology & Maker Project Manager at Conrad Electronic SE.
“The SPS is the highlight of the exhibition year for me. It acts as a beacon for the automation industry. Pooling automation and IT supports the journey to digitalization. At the event we really meet all the decision- makers from automation technology. The exhibition is invaluable for us,” Lorenz Arnold, Managing Partner, MGA Ingenieurdienstleistungen GmbH.
