SPS – Smart Production Solutions Guangzhou, formerly known as SIAF, will return to the China Import and Export Fair Complex in Guangzhou from 25 – 27 February 2025. Over the past 15 years, the show has offered a critical sourcing platform to companies seeking to enter the South China manufacturing market. The show’s renaming signifies a renewal of its concept, reflecting its development within the region while elevating it to an official member of the globally-recognised SPS brand. With this change, SPS – Smart Production Solutions Guangzhou will synergise with SPS in Germany, facilitating the flow of resources and expertise between fairs under the brand.

The show’s renaming highlights SPS – Smart Production Solutions Guangzhou’s expanding influence within the smart manufacturing industry. Through aligning with SPS, the exhibition will be better able to leverage global resources and collaborate with other fairs under the brand. This strategic move aims to bring additional international attention to the show, and will allow it to provide a more diverse range of opportunities to the industry.

Ultimately, the fair’s organisers intend for the show to become a platform complimenting SPS in Nuremberg, the largest trade fair for smart automation in Europe. Like its sister event, the Guangzhou fair will operate under the theme “Bringing automation to life”. Embracing this vision, the show will provide facilities for both networking and knowledge exchange, allowing participants to stay at the forefront of the rapidly changing landscape of smart automation while accelerating the adoption of automated solutions within the South China manufacturing industry.

Future-oriented products and technologies attract a lot of attention here, and the show’s concurrent forums brought together many manufacturers with strong technological expertise, providing an excellent platform for mutual exchange and learning.
