As of 1 July, the EMVA Secretariat will be relocated to new premises in Barcelona, Spain. The relocation is the first step in implementing the growth strategy formally adopted at the EMVA's General Assembly in Lisbon in April 2012.

‘The new secretariat is a first step to further develop and grow our association,’ said EMVA president Toni Ventura-Traveset. The transfer of the secretariat also marks the beginning of a new era for the EMVA as an independent legal entity and means the organisation isn’t hosted any more by the VDMA in Frankfurt.

From July 2012, former Executive Committee member Cor Maas will be General Secretary of EMVA for an interim period. ‘We would like to thank the VDMA for hosting and supporting the development of the EMVA from the very beginning. This has been of great value for the European machine vision industry,’ Ventura-Traveset added.
