Global event portfolio

Automation exhibitions need to take place where production plants and user industries are located. SPS satellite events are held wherever suppliers of smart and digital automation technology have their growth markets and require a professional platform for presentation and communication.

SPS Italia, 28 – 30 May 2024

SPS Italia

Since it was established in 2011, SPS Italia has become the meeting place for Italian OEMs and companies that look to Italy as a potential market for their industrial automation products and solutions.

Thanks to a very strong OEM sector, in terms of both the performance and the quality of the machines it produces, Italy is the second largest European market for automation – in 2016, the sector grew by 7%. The export of machinery from Italy shows positive growth and Italy is the only EU country, apart from Germany, that can boast a trade surplus due to the export of automation technology.
