SPS 30th anniversary


SPS 30th anniversary

SPS, the trade show for smart and digital automation is celebrating its thirtieth edition in Nuremberg, Germany from November 26. – 28. Visitors to this year’s event will also be taken on a journey through time, experiencing the history of the trade show as well as the automation industry.

The SPS first started in Sindelfingen in 1990 as a trade show and accompanying congress with a total of 63 exhibitors and 3,420 visitors. Five of the companies that exhibited at the very first show are this year also celebrating their 30thanniversary as exhibitors at the event: Beijer Electronics, Hüthig, M&M Software, Pilz and Yaskawa (back then under the name of VIPA). The move to Nuremberg in 1997 gave the SPS room to grow, expanding from a single exhibition hall in Sindelfingen to three halls in Nuremberg. This change of location also attracted some new exhibitors from around the Nuremberg area.

Over the years, the trade show has continued to grow and expand. While the exhibition space has increased from 3,500 m² to 136,000 m² since 1990, many exhibitors have themselves seen significant growth. Today, SPS is an established platform for smart and digital automation. It offers a meeting place for expert visitors and exhibitors with a focus on practical, intelligent solutions for the challenges of today and tomorrow. In Nuremberg, exhibitors will be showcasing their existing product ranges as well as their very latest product innovations, giving the visitors a comprehensive picture of the market.

Susanne Kunschert, Managing Partner Pilz, says: "For me, SPS is the technology show par excellence; a trade show where innovation comes first and where expert discussions with specialists and customers play a very special role. It takes you right to the heart of the technology — that’s a valuable exchange."
