After breaking five-digit visitor numbers for the first time, the organisers of VISION (the 2018 iteration closed yesterday) declared that the event had confirmed its status as the world’s leading trade fair for machine vision.
Some 11,106 professionals visited the event in Stuttgart, an increase of 14% compared to the previous event.
This is a new visitor record and the proportion of visitors who came to VISION Stuttgart from abroad rose to a record 47%.
Dr Klaus-Henning Noffz (above), CEO of Silicon Software and President of the VDMA Machine Vision sector group, said: “VISION is the world’s leading trade fair in the sector and was the pulse for machine vision for three days. In particular, the quality of the discussions and the great visitor interest in concrete solutions are impressive.
“Machine vision technology has long since established itself as the ‘eye’ and data supplier for Industry 4.0 and countless non-industrial application areas. The innovative strength and dynamism of the industry are promising, so we are already excited to see what VISION 2020 has in store from 10 to 12 November.”
