Shanghai machine vision event attracted 'more knowledgeable' visitors
Machine Vision China 2007 received more knowledgeable and better-prepared visitors than last year’s event, according to participants. The event also attracted more homegrown exhibitors, with 10 Chinese camera manufacturers attending.
‘It was significantly larger in terms of exhibit space and also drew a better audience than the first show,’ says Jeff Burnstein, executive director of the Automated Imaging Association and a featured speaker at the event. ‘I think the visitors in our delegation were quite impressed by the activity level at the show as well as the large number of international visitors who participated.’
He also noted that companies are now more ready to deal with the problems of doing business with China, such as intellectual property and cultural differences.
The event ran from 22-24 March. The China Mechanical Engineering Society, who organised the event, is planning an additional machine vision show in Beijing for September this year, which the AIA is planning on playing a similar, though smaller, role in.
