Messe Stuttgart


Messe Stuttgart is one of the leading trade fair organizations in Germany with special competence for production engineering due to the automotive, electronics and machine industries--as well as their suppliers--for which the Greater Stuttgart region is worldwide known. The trade fairground provides space of 50.000 sqm.

VISION - The Key Event for Your Success!

The VISION show is the number 1 trade fair for machine vision and identification technologies in Europe--maybe even worldwide--due to tremendous growth rates and also according to the opinion of the exhibitors. The suppliers and, in particular, users of industrial image-processing systems are domiciled in Stuttgart and the surrounding region. However, a much more important fact is that the main application industries can be found in the Stuttgart region. The electronics/electrical engineering industry, the car industry and the metalworking industry are the three most important customers for industrial image-processing components and systems. IBM, HP, DaimlerChrysler, Porsche, Audi, Bosch and many other world-renowned companies have production facilities in the Greater Stuttgart region. This makes Stuttgart the ideal location for VISION and contributes a great deal to the success of the trade fair.

Facts and Figures about VISION

VISION 2004 attracted more than 180 exhibitors from 20 countries (39% of exhibitors came from abroad). Messe Stuttgart is again expecting a substantial increase this year. Around 200 exhibitors from home and abroad are expected to attend VISION 2005. The number of foreign exhibitors has also risen continuously in the past few years, an indication of the increasing international character of VISION.
