New highlights, new formats, new impulses

Innovations, evolutions, revolutions: For us as technology leaders in PC- and EtherCAT-based control technology, the SPS – Smart Production Solutions – is the most important platform for presenting the latest highlights in automation technology to you personally and in direct conversation. This year, the SPS will take place from November 24 to 26, 2020, for the first time in a virtual format: as the SPS Connect.

We look forward to intensive conversations with you, for which we are offering different dialog formats. Our automation experts will personally present the latest technologies to you. On each day of the exhibition we will invite you to exciting lectures, web chats and roundtables with high-ranking participants. In addition, we are planning accompanying digital formats, about which we will shortly be providing you with detailed information.
