In an unsurprising move, SPS 2020 has moved from a real to a virtual event.

As the leading event for Smart Production Solutions, organizers Mesago Messe Frankfurt felt the show could not proceed as planned under current hygiene and social distancing regulations.

“SPS is characterized by intensive technical discussions and the exchange between exhibitors and visitors. Unfortunately, we currently hardly see any possibility of making this possible on-site in the usual way,” said Sylke Schulz-Metzner, Vice President SPS.

The virtual SPS Connect event will take place from November 24th to 26th 2020. The focus will be on connecting exhibitors and visitors, manufacturers and users, as well as a varied program of lectures on current industry topics.

With the help of AI, SPS Connect will offer access to an innovative form of matchmaking that will allow exhibitors and professional attendees to engage in in-depth discussions about the latest developments and trends in automation technology. The platform will also remain available after the event.

The event program will include product presentations from exhibitors, keynotes, expert talks, and podium discussions related to politics, business, and industry. These will be followed by live Q&A sessions that will give attendees the chance to join the conversation and pose their questions directly to the speakers.
