Share this on social media:

The Vision 2007 event saw 16 per cent more visitors and 31 per cent more exhibitors, compared with last year's stats, when the trade fair ran in Stuttgart from 6 to 8 November 2007.

A total of 6,142 visitors came to the 2007 event, compared with 5,293 in 2006, and 281 exhibitor stands were displayed at 2007’s event, compared with 214 at the previous event.

More than two-fifths (42 per cent) of exhibitors came from abroad and 27 countries were represented. The total exhibition space also increased by 11 per cent to 15,000 square metres with Vision 2007 held, for the first time, in the halls at the New Stuttgart Trade Fair Centre.

The proportion of visitors from abroad was 29 per cent. Most of them came from Europe while 1 in 4 travelled to Stuttgart from Asia. The majority of visitors were employed in the electrical engineering, electronics, mechanical engineering and car industries. All these industries rank among the main customers for machine vision.

Visitors were primarily interested in machine vision components followed by machine vision systems and applications, and services, i.e. just the range offered by the exhibitors at Vision.

Nine-tenths of visitors were closely involved or played a role in purchasing and procurement decisions in their company and 84 per cent said they were planning to invest.

Three-quarters of visitors with an inclination to invest said that they wanted to do so during the trade fair or within the next six months.

The vast majority of visitors were also impressed with the exhibitors with 97 per cent saying they were very satisfied to satisfied with the opportunities for information and contacts.

Almost half of the exhibitors are also of the opinion that Vision will continue to gain in importance because of its high growth rates and new location, which is easier to access for both German and international visitors.

Vision 2008 will be held again in the halls of the New Stuttgart Trade Fair Centre from 4 t0 6 November 2008.
