[Landau i. d. Pfalz, November 2, 2022] — At SPS (Smart Production Solutions) fair in Nuremberg, on November 9th, AUVESY-MDT will launch a new broadcasting format Connect Express. Industry opinion leaders will also share the most important insights and highlights from the fair with the broader audience of automation professionals.

AUVESY-MDT Connect Express is a series of fascinating interviews, with automation opinion leaders, streamed from many of the world’s influential fairs, shows and congresses in industrial automation throughout the year.

The interviewees represent leading manufacturing giants, who have successfully led their companies through the digital transformation and harness the power of automation to unleash the full potential of Industry 4.0.


At Connect Express, we discuss the most important insights and highlights from the event: the latest news, current trends, and challenges of the automation industry. Our guests are sharing their invaluable experiences, success cases and best practices, as well as their vision of the future of industrial automation. Together we lift the veil and look at how the industry is going to evolve over the next 3-5 or even 10 years, and how companies can meet the future demand in the automation space.
