ESA Automation at SPS Italia 2024 Preview

From 28 to 30 May 2024, ESA returns to Parma for the twelfth edition of SPS Italia. The fair for intelligent, digital and sustainable industry, a reference point for the Italian manufacturing sector, is the perfect stage to present our most recent and innovative hardware and software solutions. In fact, these products are perfectly consistent with the hot-topics of the event organized by Messe Frankfurt Italia.

SPS Italia 2024: themes and highlights

Like every year, the fair will be structured into different thematic areas, each focused on specific areas of interest, for a total of six exhibition pavilions. In pavilions 3, 5 and 6, smart technologies and solutions for automation and digital transition are exhibited. While in pavilions 4, 7 and 8, it is possible to discover District 4.0, an exhibition itinerary full of demos and application cases of Industrial IT & AI, Robotics and Mechatronics, Additive Manufacturing, Sustainable Innovation and the new areas dedicated to Start Up and Education.

The issue of sustainability is very important, central to Industry 4.0 (and 5.0). To address it, the Sustainable Innovation area has been set up, which will enhance the role of smart production solutions with the three main meanings: Automation at the center of sustainability; Digital as a technology to support sustainability; Emerging technologies for sustainability.

But not only. SPS Italia offers many opportunities for interaction and collaboration between participants, networking, and knowledge exchange.
