The SPS 2023 will once again feature a first-class lecture program – both on-site and online. Technical lectures and panel discussions will not only be hosted at the Technology Stage powered by VDMA/ZVEI in Hall 3, but also broadcasted live via the accompanying digital platform "SPS on air".

The SPS 2022 lecture program
The lecture program of the SPS 2022 included 120 forum contributions on topics of importance for the automation industry, including sustainability in automation, safety and security as well as new logistic methods and robotic integration. In addition to highly qualified panel discussions and focused technical lectures, visitors also had the opportunity to join Dr. Markus Söder, Minister President of the Christian Social Union in Bavaria (CSU), MdL, at the digital talk. Some of the topics discussed were the future of digitization and the importance of trade fairs for Germany as a business location. The live broadcast on the "SPS on air" platform allowed attendees to follow the talk regardless of location.
