VISION, the world's leading machine vision trade fair, is now switching to a two-year cycle. It will be held every November during even-numbered years. This cycle change means that VISION 2013 is cancelled. VISION is therefore setting the course for further growth in the future in step with its exhibitors and partners. VISION is not just the marketplace for component manufacturers, it is also a platform for system suppliers and integrators. VISION is where OEMs, mechanical engineering companies and system houses learn about the latest innovations from the world of machine vision components, and where they initiate their investments. At the same time it is where end users searching for specific machine vision solutions meet numerous system integrators. This is the only place in the world where the complete spectrum of the machine vision technology is staged in this way.
