The UKIVA announced that its next Machine Vision Conference and Exhibition will be held on Wednesday 16th May 2018 at Arena MK, Milton Keynes, UK. It will follow a similar format to the highly successful inaugural event held in 2017, which attracted more than 300 visitors.
Designed to provide an educational experience, the Machine Vision Conference and Exhibition will once again feature a comprehensive program of technical seminars across multiple presentation theatres.This will be supported by an exhibition of the latest vision technology and services from the leading companies in the world of vision.
Paul Wilson, UKIVA Chairman, commented: “The date for the 2018 event was only announced at the recent PPMA Show, held right at the end of September. We already have 25 companies signed up for the exhibition, including several who are not UKIVA members. This year we had 57 exhibitors, so this early take up suggests that we are on track for an even bigger exhibition component in 2018.”
“Key to the success of this year’s event, however, was the educational seminar program, which ran throughout the day,” he continued. “Visitors could choose their own timetable from 56 presentations held in 7 themed presentation theatres. The program was carefully designed to cover a wide range of topics and provide interest both for newcomers to vision and for highly experienced vision users and engineers. By co-locating the exhibition with the presentation theatre area, it was easy for attendees to switch between the seminar sessions and exhibition according to their own personal schedule. This format also provided excellent opportunities for networking between presenters, exhibitors and other visitors.”
Keynote speakers for 2018 will be announced in due course, and the full seminar program will be published early in 2018 at www.machinevisionconference.
