The momentum of SPS Italia continues in Germany

14 Jun 2022

The great success of the SPS Italia 2022 has further spurred interest in the SPS 2022 in Nuremberg: more than 700 exhibitors have already registered for the event, which will take place from 8 – 10 November. Following a successful SPS Italia in Parma, which was able to achieve an extremely positive result with 36,522 visitors and 802 exhibitors from May 24 - 26, the SPS in Nuremberg, has also recorded a high demand for participation in this year's highlight trade fair for automation.


"In the many conversations with very satisfied exhibitors and visitors at this year's SPS Italia, we received very clear confirmation of how important it is to offer the trade fair community a platform, where all important stakeholders in the industry come together to discuss the latest products and solutions in automation in a personal exchange," emphasizes Sylke Schulz-Metzner, Vice President SPS.

After almost three years without the SPS as a focused trade fair, anticipation is also high in Germany for the reunion event. Almost all of the well-known exhibitors have already registered for the trade fair this fall. These include  Siemens, Phoenix Contact, Beckhoff, B&R, Endress+Hauser, Hans Turck, WAGO, OPC Foundation, KEBA, CODESYS, Bosch Rexroth, Baumüller, Pilz, PROFIBUS Nutzerorganisation and EPLAN, just to name a few.

For us, it’s the most important trade fair in automation technology world-wide. The Who's Who of the industry is here.”
