With strong growth in visitors (plus 17 percent), exhibitors (plus 13 percent) and exhibition space (plus 20 percent), SPS IPC Drives Italia 2014 confirmed its position as the leading exhibition for electric automation technology in Italy. 584 exhibitors from 28 countries displayed their products and solutions in the field of automation, for the first time in two exhibition halls.
The format "exhibition with accompanying conference" proved to be winning once again. In this year the focus of the round tables, which took place within the conference program, was on "Food", "Pharmaceuticals" and "Cosmetics industries". They had a very good response and encouraged meetings and debates among the market operators.
The next edition of SPS IPC Drives Italia will take place once again in Parma from 12 - 14 May 2015.
