At IMTS and SPS, AMT collaborates with Mesago on the automation sector.

AMT – The Association For Manufacturing Technology – and Mesago, a subsidiary of Messe Frankfurt Group, have announced a partnership to develop an automation section at The International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) in 2024 and Smart Production Solutions (SPS) in Atlanta, Georgia, in 2025. Gardner Business Media (GBM) will support both events. SPS’s automation sector at IMTS 2024 will present a diverse range of automated, robotic, linked, and digital manufacturing technologies. IMTS 2024 takes place September 9 to 14 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois.

“The automation sector at IMTS expands IMTS’s appeal as a must-attend event for businesses that want to increase their manufacturing efficiency through automation,” says Douglas K. Woods, president of AMT, which owns and produces IMTS. “By working with SPS, IMTS 2024 will have even more exhibits featuring advanced motion systems, vision and imaging, data analytics, systems integration, artificial intelligence, and cloud and edge computing.” SPS 2025 will be placed at the Georgia World Congress Centre in Atlanta, Georgia, from September 23-25, 2025. The first event will feature exhibits ranging from simple sensors to intelligent systems.

“Manufacturing in the Southeast region is flourishing, and Georgia, as one of the national leaders in advanced manufacturing, is the perfect backstory for an automation industry event in the United States,” says Constantin von Vieregge, president and CEO of Messe Frankfurt Inc. “The development of SPS in Atlanta, in collaboration with AMT, GBM, and our sister company, Mesago, will cater to various sectors, providing a platform to elevate the advancing technological innovations.”

Both events are expected to accelerate knowledge exchange, which is especially important in global concerns affecting supply chains, logistics, staff shortages, and cost pressures. These concerns enhance the demand for automation solutions that increase worker productivity and business profitability. According to Mesago Messe Frankfurt president Martin Roschkowski, “the strength of SPS in the global automation industry, coupled with IMTS, will provide important business platforms for companies involved in this rapidly changing environment.” Mesago Messe Frankfurt also organises SPS trade shows in China, Italy, and the Middle East, as well as events focused on electronic assemblies, intelligent motion, and additive manufacturing.
