In this year of big changes, fairs and exhibitions are also innovating.
This is what SPS Italia, the historic fair of automation and digital for industry and in which we have participated with enthusiasm in the last editions, is doing with the launch of its new online hub: SPS Italia Contact Place.
Not just an online platform, but a digital community to keep in touch 365 days a year with the industry, experts and news, with the aim of completing and optimizing the ties that are usually formed during a “physical” event, such as a fair.
What is SPS Italia Contact Place?
Companies that usually exhibit with their stands at SPS Italia, including Fandis, have been invited to present products, solutions, events, video on-demand, job advertisements, contacts of technology experts on their personal pages of the platform, just as if it were a stand to be set up.
At this moment, on Contact Place there are already over 400 company profiles, available for consultation for free from 28 September.
Individual users can also participate, creating their own digital identity: by completing as much data and information as possible, the platform will be able to provide useful suggestions, combining the interests indicated and the contents available.
The reasons behind the creation of Contact Place are well explained in the press release of the fair:
“The dimension of the physical relationship from which collaboration and business opportunities can arise cannot be replaced. A recurring concept in recent months, which continues to find confirmation. The opportunity to build networks is missing, and if trade fairs play a crucial role in helping the Italian industrial sectors and SMEs to face the recovery, they will do so with a renewed awareness and with a new ally: the support of enhanced digital skills.”
SPS Italia Contact Place opens with Digital Days
For the launch of the community, SPS Italia organized Digital Days: an online event lasting three days which, in addition to officially inaugurating the platform, offered online conferences, scientific sessions and meetings to watch live or on-demand.
Is this the future of trade fairs?
The task of the fairs has always been to help exhibitors and visitors to create commercial relationships, providing experiences and tools that are always different, to foster collaborations and contacts.
Even if the physical dimension has that extra edge that as human beings we will continue to research, SPS Italia Contact Place is undoubtedly a new way to offer those same connections, to pursue the same growth objective even in such a particular moment of our history.
