Now in its 8th year, the Machine Vision Conference (MVC) is recognised worldwide as the leading machine vision trade show. This year’s conference takes place at the CBS Arena in Coventry on 18-19 June, featuring an exciting range of new machine vision technology including the latest state-of-the-art solutions from industry leading companies.
The core purpose of MVC is to promote the use of image processing technology, educate visitors about innovative new processes and assist businesses in finding new fantastic technologies that can help them to improve processes and reduce operating costs.
This annual event is content packed with fantastic networking opportunities, live demonstrations and knowledge sharing, making it an ideal combination for existing machine vision users and engineers as well as educating those new to the machine vision technology.
MVC 2024 is anticipated to be one of the best two-day conference and exhibition yet with visitors expected to immerse themselves in the latest developments and innovations from leading brands, who are eager to showcase and demonstrate their cutting-edge machine vision solutions. In addition, the outstanding seminar programme featuring some of the industry’s most knowledgeable experts, will make it hard for visitors to decide which thought-provoking presentations to attend.
