After three years of postponement due to the coronavirus, the leading trade fair for smart and digital automation will return to its regular date at the end of November in 2025. “The pandemic made us reshuffle the cards, and in order to give the industry certainty in terms of planning, it was necessary to move the SPS,” explains Sylke Schulz-Metzner, Vice President SPS. “It makes us all the more delighted to bring this end-of-year highlight back to its rightful place in the calendar from 2025 for automation solution suppliers and interested parties - it feels like a homecoming.”
