Exhibition space at Vision 2011 set to surpass 2010's show

'All indications are that this year's Vision will surpass the record from 2010. Far more net exhibition space has now already been booked than in the comparable period last year,' said Florian Niethammer, project manager for Vision at Messe Stuttgart.

Vision 2011, the international trade fair for machine vision (MV), will take place at the Stuttgart Trade Fair Centre from 8-10 November 2011.

At this year's show, the Integration Area, an exhibition platform specifically for systems integrators, will be considerably larger, according to Niethammer: 'Based on the number of registrations received to date, there will be 50 per cent more exhibitors than in 2010.' Practical live demonstrations in the Application Park and the Vision Academy, the user-oriented training forum, will make it even more attractive for end users to attend the trade fair.

The show will also focus for the first time on medical technology as an upcoming application area. A Medical Discovery Tour will indicate, by means of a special logo, exhibitors’ stands that are offering machine vision products, solutions or services for medical technology, which to date, 42 companies have signed up to take part in.

Vision 2011 will also again feature an International Pavilion for first-time exhibitors from abroad, a group stand funded by the German Ministry of Economics (BMWi) for innovative young enterprises from Germany, and the presentation of the 19th Vision Award for outstanding achievements in machine vision.

The show will feature more than 300 exhibitors, of whom more than 40 per come from abroad. In addition to the trade fair, visitors can look forward to an extensive advanced training programme on all three days: the Industrial Vision Days, organised by the VDMA (German Engineering Federation) Machine Vision Group. The programme will feature exciting topics such as 3D in medical technology, parallel computing in machine vision, the advantages of the latest data interfaces, such as USB 3.0, Camera Link HS and 10 GigE Vision, and much more besides.
