The Association for Advancing Automation (A3) today announced four events to promote the use of vision and imaging technologies, including the return of The Vision Show in 2022, the premier North American vision industry trade show and conference.
These events – three virtual conferences and the in-person trade show – are essential to helping companies solve challenges in manufacturing, logistics, food & beverage, life sciences, medical, and a wide range of other industries. Vision and imaging suppliers and integrators represent a significant portion of A3’s 1,100+ member companies. These new events are critical to helping satisfy the growing demand for practical, real-world machine vision solutions, according to the trade group’s president, Jeff Burnstein.
“Companies in just about every industry are using vision and imaging technologies to improve product quality, boost productivity, and more effectively control their processes,” Burstein said. “In an increasingly automated world filled with connected and smart machines, the role of vision and imaging technologies will continue to expand.”
To meet that growing demand, A3 announced the following events:
