Visitor registration open for UKIVA machine vision conference and exhibition
21 February 2019
Visitor registration for the UKIVA Machine Vision Conference and Exhibition is now open at www.machinevisionconference.co.uk. The one-day event will take place at the Marshall Arena, Milton Keynes, UK on Thursday 6 June 2019.
The Conference programme for 2019 will feature around 60 speakers, delivering the richest and most diverse programme offered to date. A new ‘Vision in Robotics’ theme has been introduced making 8 different technology tracks running across the day. This reflects the ever-growing use of vision in combination with robotics, its use in a host of factory automation processes and integration into Industry 4.0 and the smart factories of the future. The programme has been designed to provide interesting content for visitors with any level of vision knowledge and experience, from those new to the subject to experts.
In tandem with the Conference, the exhibition is also bigger than ever. Co-located with the presentation theatres for easy access throughout the day, the exhibition will include more than 10 new exhibitors compared to 2018. These new additions further broaden the range of countries represented at the event. These now include: Belgium, Canada, Germany, Ireland, Korea, Italy, Norway, Slovakia, People's Republic of China and the USA as well as the UK, highlighting the truly international flavour. The line-up represents an excellent cross-section of the industrial vision industry, including vision component manufacturers, vision component and system distributors and systems integrators.
Event organiser, Chris Valdes, commented: “Attendance at the event held in 2018 was up by 17 percent compared to the previous year. Early indications are that visitor numbers will increase again in 2019, reflecting the larger Conference and Exhibition. The Conference programme is beginning to take shape, and the full programme, together with details of the two Keynote addresses, will be published on the event website (www.machinevisionconference.co.uk) as soon as it is finalised.”
