SPS/IPC/Drives gets a new name for 2019!
The exhibition is named after its three core themes of the SPS (memory-programmable controls), IPC (industrial PC) and Drives (electric drives). However, alongside these three original components, the exhibition now offers a much broader spectrum of solutions for future-oriented automation and this will lead to a big change for the event in 2019.
The event organiser, Mesago Messe Frankfurt, has adapted the title of the event in time for the exhibition’s 30th anniversary. As from 2019, the exhibition will carry a new name: SPS – smart production solutions.
“We thought long and hard about the name and, together with our Exhibitor Advisory Board, we came to the decision that this is the right, and necessary step to take. We will not be changing anything with the concept or the thematic orientation. The focus will continue to be on practical solutions and expert discussion amongst equals“, said Sylke Schulz-Metzner, vice president of SPS IPC Drives at Mesago Messe Frankfurt GmbH.>
