Share this on social media:

Messe Stuttgart has announced that Vision, the biennial machine vision trade fair, has been cancelled for 2020 because of Covid-19 travel restrictions.

The show, which was due to take place in November, is one of the biggest events in the machine vision calendar.

Vision 2020 was cancelled after discussion with exhibitors and the machine vision arm of the VDMA. Florian Niethammer, project manager of Vision, said in a statement: 'In the discussions held it became apparent that Vision cannot be held this year with the usual quality, particularly due to the high international character of the event combined with the continuing travel restrictions.'

A date for the next show has not been announced yet, but Messe Stuttgart is running a survey about the cancellation in order to respond to the needs of the industry.

'It is important for us to find out more about the impacts of the cancellation of Vision on exhibitors and visitors and their business. Therefore, we are gathering specific feedback and call on everyone to actively contribute,' Niethammer said.

The team aims to develop appropriate formats from the results of the survey, and to announce the date of the next Vision show in the near future.
