In the Halls of Progress
Every year when November comes around, I find myself wondering what will be on display at the SPS IPC Drives show this year. Over a week, some of the brightest minds in automation technology come together to present their newest and greatest products and solutions, and over 65,000 people flock here every year to catch up with those latest innovations.
Spread out over 12 halls in the Nuremberg Messe, the show is huge, and can be quite daunting to a newcomer. Luckily for me, I’ve been able to attend the show for the last 4 years in a row, so I feel like I’m starting to get the hang of it now (for instance, I know the best place to get lunch!). With so much to see and so many stands to visit, you’re never going to be able to see everything, but every stand (over 1600 of them!) has always got its best work on display, to entice visitors over to see what the fuss is about.
I’ve always loved the intricate moving parts of automation technology, but even better, I love filming them.
