The number of visitors to Vision 2014 in Stuttgart grew by 23 per cent on the 2012 event, according to figures released as part of the official final report on the show. Exhibitor numbers were also up by 16 per cent.

Last year’s Vision, which took place 4-6 November 2014, was the first show in the trade fair’s new biennial cycle, a change that some commentators regarded as an indicator of a maturing machine vision market with longer product development cycles.

According to an exhibitor survey conducted by Messe Stuttgart, organisers of the trade fair, 77 per cent of exhibitors rated the change to the two-year cycle as good to very good. In addition, more than half of the exhibitors judged their appearance at this year's trade fair as more successful than at the previous events.

‘We are very satisfied with the number and quality of professional visitors. We have received very positive feedback from all sectors of the industry. Thanks to the new two-year cycle, we are also now able to showcase ourselves better with our innovations. In addition, we are extremely satisfied with the high number of international exhibitors and visitors,’ Dr Olaf Munkelt, CEO of the VDMA Machine Vision Association in Frankfurt, and president of MVTec Software, commented in a statement.

Visitor numbers were 8,671 and 48 per cent of these travelled more than 300km to the event. In 2012, 36 per cent of the visitors to the trade fair travelled from abroad, now this figure is at 39 per cent.

The visitors came from 58 countries (2012: 53), mainly from Italy, Switzerland, France, Austria, the Netherlands, Great Britain, South Korea, Belgium, Spain and China.
