Organisers of SPS/IPC/DRIVES 2011 report that, for the first time, 12 halls will be occupied instead of 11. About 100,000m2 of stand space has been booked so far by companies wishing to showcase their products and systems, innovations and trends in the field of electrical automation. This figure is already up on this time last year. In total more than 1300 companies from Germany and abroad are expected.
The trend topics at SPS/IPC/Drives 2011 are as follows:
- Energy efficiency
- Industrial identification
- Safety and security
Products and systems relevant to these themes will be on display at the exhibition, and they will also be the subjects for many of the forum and conference presentations and discussions.
As with 2010, the joint stand 'wireless in automation' will offer visitors the chance to gain a broad overview of the sector. The ZVEI and VDMA exhibition forums will provide contributions from exhibitors, publishing houses and trade associations.
SPS/IPC/Drives 2011 takes place from 22–24 November 2011 in Nuremberg. Registration is already open and an up-to-date exhibitor list and other information can be found at www.mesago.de/sps.
