As a sister event of the world-renowned SPS IPC Drives in Nuremburg, Germany, SIAF is the premier hub for intelligent automation solutions in South China. Exhibitor recruitment for the 2019 edition has already surpassed previous years as booth reservations have increased by 36% from this time last year. Some of the renowned brands to return again in 2019 include Balluff, Cognex, IFM, Pepperl + Fuchs, SICK and YASKAWA Shougang. Such encouraging figures indicate industry peers are optimistic about the market growth over the coming years.

A long-time exhibitor of SIAF, Adtech (Shenzhen) Technology Co Ltd, applauded the continued effectiveness of the show. Mr Wang Liang, Marketing Manager, stated: "Our company has been exhibiting at SIAF since 2007. The show has a long history of helping to develop the industry and has earned significant influence within the industrial automation industry in South China. We return each year to the fair in order to increase our brand awareness and to meet new customers." From small and medium-sized companies specialising in a particular technology to large businesses involved across various industry sectors, SIAF continues to be recognised as an ideal platform to discover new business opportunities.

Similar to last year, various product categories will be arranged into different halls to make navigation for fairgoers more convenient. Hall 5.1 will feature sensors and applications of machine vision, while industrial robotic technologies and accessories, pneumatic systems and components as well as intelligent equipment will all be featured in Hall 2.1. Hall 3.1 and 4.1 will house advanced control technologies, industrial connectors, drive systems and components.

The application of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) in manufacturing technologies to deliver greater capacity and value by optimising production requirements has become a compelling industry trend. An enhanced product zone dedicated to IIoT, industrial software and systems will allow fairgoers to uncover some of the latest innovations available in the market.
