SPS 2021 – The Platform for Automation Industry Exchange
Even in times of COVID-19, SPS Smart Production Solutions remains one of the most important highlights in the automation industry calendar. Following a successful test exhibition in Munich, trade fairs have been permitted again in Bavaria since 1 August 2021 and around 750 exhibitors are expected in Nuremberg from 23-25 November 2021 to present their products and solutions for smart and digital automation. This on-site will be combined with a supplementary digital offering.
SPS 2021 to be complemented by “SPS on air” digital event
