SPS Automation Middle East, 2 – 3 September 2019
SPS Automation Middle East is the only event in the entire MENA region that presents all aspects and applications of automation. From industry to building, it showcases the latest innovations from the world of IoT, artificial intelligence, and Industry 4.0.
SPS Automation Middle East will contribute to building a solid foundation for the development of the automation industry in the Middle East, thanks to the two-day conference that will run alongside the exhibition with high-ranking experts from the industry.
The Middle East is at the very beginning of the automation era. Accordingly, to boost regional growth, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia have unveiled their “Vision for 2030”, which aims to promote divergence into and development of non-oil industries such as aerospace, aluminum and fabricated metals, maritime, consumer products, pharmaceuticals and medical equipment, and machinery and equipment.
UAE and Saudi Arabia are the main users of automation technology in the GCC region. However, market awareness is higher in the UAE, where 20 big players are based. Dubai is the regional innovation hub and the “Silicon Valley” of the Middle East. It also provides access to other hard-to-reach markets in the Middle East and Africa.
