Preview of SPS Italia: themes and paths for 2023

The 2023 edition of SPS Italia offers an exhibition itinerary divided into six pavilions. Halls 3, 5 and 6 are dedicated to automation technologies and digital solutions at the service of industry transformation from a 4.0 perspective. The District 4.0 stretches across pavilions 4, 7 and 8, and is dedicated to four key thematic areas of the industrial sector: Digital & Software, Robotics and Mechatronics, Additive Manufacturing, and Sustainable Innovation (new).

“There are many initiatives in the field for the eleventh edition, all in the direction of an ever closer dialogue between technology suppliers and manufacturing”, says Donald Wich, CEO of Messe Frankfurt Italia. “The answer is positive, with six pavilions and new members up by 20% we are optimistic and look at the May fair as a crucial moment for the innovation of our companies, to discover the enabling technologies for the factory, learn about the new trends , discuss the green and digital transformation of manufacturing. Furthermore, I am pleased to announce that SPS is also broadening its physical horizons: in 2024 and 2025 two new editions will be organized, in the United States and in Frankfurt.”

“Six pavilions will welcome the best of automation technologies at the service of the transformation of industry in a 4.0 perspective.
