Control trade fair registers pre-recession visitor numbers

Share this on social media:

The 25th Control trade fair for quality assurance, which took place from 3-6 May in Stuttgart, Germany, has recorded 24,462 visitors from 72 nations, which is on a par with 2008 levels prior to the recession. Twenty two per cent of visitors came from outside of Germany.

Control project manager, Gitta Schlaak, commented: 'It was a genuine showcase, and the expert visitors contributed to the event's great success right from the very beginning with concrete RFQs and emphatic demand for products and solutions for their QA requirements.'

The special show entitled 'Contactless measuring technology' was promoted once again this year by the Fraunhofer Vision Alliance. Furthermore, the theme park for quality assurance in medical engineering and the new actuator technology theme park drew much attention. Trade fair coach services offered for the first time by the Fraunhofer Institute IPM were also well received.

The 26th Control will take place from the 8-11 May 2012 at the Stuttgart exhibition centre.
