Our tips for your visit to SPS IPC Drives

You will find our personal tips for your visit based on two decades of trade fair experience here.

The Nuremberg Exhibition Center can be reached easily and quickly by car, train, plane, or public transportation. U-Bahn (subway/underground) lines U1 and U11 (toward Langwasser Süd) will take you directly from the main railway station to the Exhibition Center. The journey time from the main railway station to the trade fair is only eight minutes.

Just enter Nuremberg into your navigation system. One of the most modern traffic and parking direction systems in Europe will guide you to your destination. Dynamically adjusted to the current traffic situation, it will direct you along uncongested approaches and to one of around 14,000 parking spaces around the Exhibition Center.

Demand for hotels near the Exhibition Center is high during SPS IPC Drives. If you are looking for something a bit farther away, the city of Nuremberg and its immediate surroundings offer perfect accommodation opportunities. It is worth a look: the surrounding communities also offer inns and interesting accommodation options where you can relax after an exhausting day at the trade fair.
