Laser World of Photonics China to go ahead in July

Share this on social media:

Laser World of Photonics China, including the machine vision technology and application conference, is to go ahead from 3 to 5 July in Shanghai, the show organisers have confirmed.

It is the first physical show in the machine vision calendar that has said it will go ahead, as many countries remain in lockdown during the coronavirus pandemic.

China was the first country to impose lockdown restrictions, causing Laser World of Photonics to be postponed from March until July.

Messe Munich today confirmed that Electronica China, Productronica China and Laser World of Photonics China will be held from 3 to 5 July, after communication with exhibitors, visitors, partners and venue counterparts.

The organisers stated that 'the health and safety of exhibitors, visitors and partners will continue to be top priority. The relevant policies and regulations will strictly be followed during the shows, the various prevention and controlling security measures will be effectively implemented to ensure the safety and orderliness of the exhibition.'

The statement didn't make explicit what the measures are that will be taken for visitors and exhibitors.

Many vision firms from outside China have Chinese offices and will be exhibiting at the show.

While much of Europe and the USA remain in lockdown, show organisers have been running virtual conferences in the place of physical events. The AIA held its Vision Week from 18 to 22 May, and presentations will remain available until the end of July.

The UK Industrial Vision Association also launched its technology hub, which is also still live.
