SPS 2023: Exhibition space expanded to 16 halls

18 Jul 2023

Around 1,300 exhibitors are expected to attend the 32nd edition of the trade fair SPS – Smart Production Solutions – in Nuremberg from November 14 to 16, 2023. The current exhibitor booking figures indicate a significant growth of the exhibition compared to last year's event and thus a development towards the pre-Corona level. For this reason, the organizer Mesago Messe Frankfurt is expanding the exhibition space by two additional exhibition halls.


In 16 exhibition halls – and thus two more than in 2022 – visitors to the trade fair will have the opportunity to find out about the latest trends and developments in the field of smart and digital automation, to engage in personal conversations with the experts, and to find solutions for their automation tasks. "Last year clearly revealed the high value that SPS once again has for automation engineers in order to engage in vital personal and professional exchanges with visitors from the user industries. Demand is so high by now that we've decided to expand the exhibition grounds for this year's SPS by adding Halls 3C and 8 to provide a total of 16 halls," says Sylke Schulz-Metzner, Vice President SPS.

Friedrich P. Link, Managing Partner, LQ Mechatronik-Systeme GmbH: "We're confident about our participation in SPS this year. Over the past years, we've faced crises and challenges, and worked intensively on the further development of our products and services. We're excited to present our solutions in Hall 8 to our existing customers and prospective new customers."

Focused visitor guidance

The SPS is divided into eight main topics, which are distributed over 16 exhibition halls. In the lower half of the exhibition grounds, the focus is on electrical drive technology, mechanical infrastructure and sensor technology & system solutions, in the center on industrial communication and software & IT in manufacturing, and in the upper section of halls, the focus is on interface technology, control technology, human-machine interfaces and sensor technology & system solutions. The main topics are primarily intended to provide visitors with an orientation on the exhibition grounds and the opportunity to gain a comprehensive overview of their area of interest.

Key topics of the new halls

Halls 3C and 8, which are new this year, will focus on the following areas:

In Hall 3C, interested visitors will find suppliers from the fields of mechanical infrastructure, control technology, and software & IT in manufacturing. These include companies such as Rittal GmbH & Co. KG, EPLAN GmbH & Co. KG, Rockwell Automation GmbH and Eaton Electrical Systems Ltd., who will present their portfolio to the SPS community in a modern hall.

As an extension of the content and linking Halls 7 and 9, exhibitors such as LQ Mechatronik-Systeme GmbH, ROSE Systemtechnik GmbH and also Beijer Electronics AB will be presenting a wide range of control technology and human-machine interface products as well as solutions in Hall 8.
