The 9th annual Business Conference of the European Machine Vision Association (EMVA; Frankfurt, Germany) will take place on May 13 and 14, 2011, in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The conference unites executives and experts of the machine vision community from around the world and offers numerous networking opportunities.
This year a new networking tool will be introduced. After having identified matching company or participant profiles the online-tool allows participants to arrange B2B-meetings well in advance. After steady growth in the preceding years, approximately 150 attendees representing some 20 nations are expected to come to Amsterdam. The conference language is English.
The conference program consists of four different thematic sessions focused on machine vision in Benelux, business trends, machine vision markets, and technology trends. The two keynote speakers of the conference will both focus on the “future” from different angles. Professor Franz Josef Radermacher, Ulm University, will talk about “Globalisation, sustainability, future – the challenge ahead” and Dr. Pero Micic, FutureManagementGroup, will focus on future management as a part of corporate strategy.
As usual, the conference gives the attendees the opportunity to reinforce their network among industry peers. The starting point is a get-together on Thursday evening at the lounge of the Renaissance Amsterdam Hotel, located in the historic city centre. The conference dinner on Friday leads to the restaurant “de Kas” - a former greenhouse -. On Saturday a Grachten Tour by boat offers new perspectives of Amsterdam and also concludes the conference.
