The lead global smart automation and robotics event

Automatica is the superior exhibition for automation technology that doesn’t just present what’s newest on the market. It dictates what’s coming next and actively shapes the industry. It was first held in 2004 just as automation became a primary force in how manufacturing and many other sectors would evolve. Automatica wouldn’t be the visionary tech exhibition without its broad technological categories. All key sectors are represented - assembly and handling technology, industrial robots, professional service robotics, machine vision, positioning systems, drive technology, sensor technology and so many more others. It’s also worth notice that visitors have access to a superior support programme that’s led by the biggest names in the industry. Whatever you learn here, you won’t hear anywhere else, which makes automatica essential. 

Automatica 2023

Professionals in the automation and robotics industry can look forward to Automatica 2023 and the coinciding Laser World of PHOTONICS starting 27.06.2023 to 30.06.2023 at Messe Munich. Organisers have stated that currently the venue does not feature strict Covid-19 safety measures due to Germany lifting the related national restrictions in April 2022. As a result, attendees will not have to show 3G entry documents upon arrival at the venue. This also applies to arriving in the country, as Germany has removed its travel limitations in June 2022.

Automatica is brought to you by Messe München GmbH. The international exhibition is held at Messe München every two years and is co-located with analytica and ceramitec, which creates a strong synergy between all events. Editions run for four days in June. Admission is given only to trade visitors. Work hours are set for 09:00 in the morning until 18:00 in the afternoon for the first three days. Closing day wraps up two hours early at 16:00. Navigating Munich to reach the gates of Messe München is so simple thanks to its excellent location and public transport service. The airport connects to the exhibition centre via the suburban train lines S1 and S8. During exhibitions and trade shows there’s even a shuttle bus driving directly to the grounds. There’s also a metro line that connects you to the central station and several buses that service the rest of the city. 

  • “Automatica has once again set standards. It shows the future of automation and provides knowledge for orientation at the highest level. Visitor quality and quantity: outstanding!” – Dr. Norbert Stein, Chairman of the Board of VDMA Robotics + Automation and Managing Director of VITRONIC GmbH;
  • “Automatica is the most important trade fair in the area of robotics and automation. A lot of value is put on future-oriented technology here. This is the main reason why we are here in Munich,” – Per Vegard Nerseth, Managing Director of ABB Robotics 
  • “Our digital enterprise portfolio fits ideally to the Automatica motto ‘Optimize your Production’. Siemens provides end-to-end software and hardware solutions, with which the entire value chain can be integrated and digitalized. As a result, machine manufacturers and users can already use the benefits of Industry 4.0,” – Ralf-Michael Franke, CEO of the Factory Automation Business Unit at Siemens AG

The last live edition marked one of the biggest attendance in the exhibition’s history so far. The number of visitors reached 45,500 altogether with 38% being foreign nationals. Looking at the numbers internationally, overall 63% of all visitors were from the European Union with Austria, Italy, France, Slovenia, the Netherlands, Denmark, Spain, Hungary and Finland as leaders. Then you have countries like the UK, Japan, the USA, the Russian Federation, China and Turkey. There were also 890 exhibitors, out of which 31% were not based in Germany. What’s impressive about Automatica is that it’s popular with decision makers – 84% of all trade visitors. They represent the whole upper management food chain, right up to owners and CEOs. Because automation is just so widespread, visitors come from the automotive sector, the electrical and electronic industry, IT, rubber, metalworking and the chemical industry.
