SPS Italia is Italy’s leading trade fair for smart, digital and flexible manufacturing
The SPS Italia trade fair for smart, digital, flexible manufacturing is organized by Messe Frankfurt Italia. The annual appointment, which has become the landmark event for the Italian manufacturing sector, affords business leaders an opportunity to discuss the major challenges of their industry going forward.

“This year sees a further expansion of the fair. All told, we have six pavilions and more than 800 exhibitors. Over the years, the event has tripled in size to create the perfect conditions for the cross-fertilization of skills and experiences in the field of innovation,” explained Donald Wich, CEO of Messe Frankfurt Italia.

“Pavilions 3, 5 and 6 will exhibit all that is best in the world of automation technologies and software solutions for the digitization of production plants, along with innovative products and applications. Pavilions 4, 7 and 4.1, on the other hand, form part of ‘District 4.0’, a section of the trade fair that is dedicated to the digital transformation of manufacturing and showcases projects for the upgrading of manufacturing practices through the deployment of new technologies and the digitization of processes,” declared Francesca Selva, Vice President of Marketing & Events for Messe Frankfurt Italia.

As a fair inside the fair, District 4.0 is a pathway that branches into the following thematic areas: Advanced Automation, Digital & Software, the Competence Academy, and Robotics & Mechatronics. Each exhibition area includes working demos of scalable mechatronic solutions that integrate the different components of information and operational technologies (IT and OT), in reflection of the fact that the task of industrial transformation and modernization now demands greater knowledge-sharing and the development of a broader skillset than in the past.

The defining characteristic of the demos and solutions is that they are based on actual case histories. Rather than focusing on the specifics of a single product, however, the demos reveal the potential of the underlying technology and thus highlight the competences and skills that companies need if they want to make use of the most innovative applications.
