Attendee numbers up at EMVA conference
Attendee numbers were up at the eighth European Machine Vision Business Conference, which took place in Istanbul, Turkey on 16-17 April. The EMVA conference attracted close to 150 participants from 20 countries, exceeding last year's turnout.
The conference programme included in-depth presentations covering sessions on machine vision in Turkey, business trends, technology trends and machine vision markets in North America, Japan and Europe. The attendees received current figures, not previously published. A panel discussion with industry experts illustrated the research opportunities in Europe for machine vision and how to benefit from them.
'With the second highest turnout ever in the number of participants, the EMVA conference was unperturbed by the economic crisis. The conference will also be remembered for the travel hardship caused by the volcanic ash cloud over Europe. Stranded participants seized the opportunity for even more networking. The conference once again proved its status as the most high-level event for networking and business intelligence for the machine vision industry in Europe,' commented EMVA president, Mats Gökstorp.
The next EMVA conference will take place on 13-14 May 2011 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
