Industry Relevance

The SPS - Smart Production Solutions – rebrand opens up a new chapter for a long-running show that has been a driver for innovation in electronics manufacture for over three decades. The annual event has taken place at Messe Nuremberg since 1997, whereas the inaugural edition was run at the exhibition centre in Sindelfingen the year before. Until recently, the trade show operated under the name SPS IPC DRIVES, because of the tree main themes to its product portfolio – industrial PC, electric drives and programmable logic controllers. However, with the rise of automation the scope broadened to sensor technology, image processing systems, displays, automation systems, switch cubicles, mechanics, identification systems and more. Now SPS is the premier meeting point for supply and demand over the entire electronics value chain.

Who Are You Going to Meet?

SPS has been at the forefront of advancements made in electronics in service of German industry, but the trade show is steadily growing its international profile. A little over 30% of all exhibitors come from outside Germany with countries like Italy, Austria, China, the USA, Finland, France and Turkey having good numbers. For visitors, the ratio is a little lower with only 27% of visitors being foreign nationals. Part innovation hub – part procurement program, SPS attracts buyers and experts alike who have purchasing power and play role in decision making at their companies.
