Stuttgart, Germany--VISION, previously held every autumn at Messe Stuttgart, will now take place in alternate years. Rather than 2013, the next VISION tradeshow will now take place November 4-6, 2014. The organizers say that this decision has been taken in line with international market developments, according to a vote by exhibitors, and for the benefit of visitors.

The change was announced after extensive analyses by Messe Stuttgart in conjunction with the VDMA Machine Vision Association and key players in the machine vision industry. "The new biennial cycle will extend the leading position of VISION still further and consolidate its importance as a global innovation platform," stated Ulrich Kromer, Managing Director of Messe Stuttgart.

"The biennial cycle will provide visitors with considerable value-added," according to Olaf Munkelt, Managing Director of MVTec (Munich, Germany). "Exhibitors and attendees will see more world premieres of new products at every event and we can now prepare for VISION in an even more focused manner."

With the change to a biennial cycle, VISION can also be permanently staged in Hall 1, the L-Bank Forum. This would not have been possible with an annual date. "It will certainly lead to increased efficiency for both exhibitors and visitors," says Florin Niethammer, VISION Project Manager. "In our capacity as a trade fair company, we will actively accompany the machine vision industry during this systematic development step."
