On January 18, 2019, China Machine Vision Union (CMVU) and Messe Muenchen Shanghai jointly announced that they deepen their strategic cooperation. Starting from 2019, they are going to co-organize Vision China, an exhibition held annually in Shanghai—under the roof of LASER World of PHOTONICS CHINA—as well in Beijing and Shenzhen.
Vision China is annually held in Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen, after 15 years of operation and development, it has become an authoritative exhibition in Asia in the field of machine vision and application technology. Every year, the exhibition attracts more than 400 exhibitors from over 20 countries and more than 50,000 professional visitors from China and other parts of Asia.
Vision China—a success story
In the face of the rapidly developing machine vision industry and the vast visual technology application market in China, CMVU and Messe Muenchen Shanghai started to jointly organize Vision China Shanghai in 2010, creating China's largest machine vision technology and application exhibition platform committed to the development of the industry and its international exchanges. Supported by the strong industry and academic influence of CMVU and the rich resources and strong exhibition brands and platforms of Messe Muenchen Shanghai, Vision China Shanghai has soon developed into the largest and most important machine vision exhibition in Asia.
The further strategic cooperation between the two parties will consolidate their leading position in the machine vision technology and application exhibitions and academic forums. CMVU Chairman Pan Jin pointed out: “We have been conducting a strategic cooperation with Messe Muenchen Shanghai for many years. Our cooperation will extend our success made in Shanghai to Beijing and Shenzhen. This is also the mutual expectations of the vast industrial enterprise and users. We hope that through the in-depth cooperation, we can promote the machine vision technology and its applications nationwide, and at the same time strengthen relevant international exchange and cooperation. We want to help Chinese enterprises to strengthen their position in the market.”
Edwin Tan, CEO of Messe Muenchen Shanghai, added: “The machine vision technology has extremely broad application prospects and market needs. This strategic cooperation will integrate the superior resources of both sides. We will promote machine vision technology and its applications in the exhibitions organized by Messe München in China and abroad.”
