Milton Keynes MP to open UK vision conference

Iain Stewart, MP for Milton Keynes South, will open the Machine Vision Conference and Exhibition on 27 April  at Arena MK, the UK Industrial Vision Association (UKIVA) has announced.

Stewart’s opening address will take place at 9.45am and will be followed by the first keynote presentation at 10.00am.

Stewart has represented his constituency since 2010. Following the appointment of the new Prime Minister, Theresa May, Stewart was moved to the newly formed Department for International Trade as the PPS to Rt. Hon Dr Liam Fox MP.

The UKIVA Machine Vision Conference and Exhibition will provide an excellent vehicle for international trade and will highlight the buoyancy in the UK vision market less than a year after the uncertainty that accompanied the Brexit vote.

With keynote addresses from leading household brands Dyson and Ocado Technology, and a main programme featuring 56 seminars across seven different presentation theatres, the conference will provide visitors with plenty of opportunity to explore the multitude of ways that vision technology has relevance to everyday life.

The programme has something for everyone with themes including ‘Understanding vision basics’ through to ‘Systems and applications’ and ‘Vision innovations’.
