The show is being targeted at users and specifiers of automation equipment. According to the organisers, Mesago Messe Frankfurt and Messe Frankfurt Italia, 60 to 80 % of Italy’s automation industry is located in the regions of Lombardy and Emilia Romagna, within easy reach of Parma. Italy is Europe’s second-largest market for automation and electrical systems, after Germany.
