The annual Machine Vision Conference is renowned worldwide as the principal event that captures the very best in machine vision technology, from the latest cutting-edge industrial vision to innovative imaging technologies. This year’s MVC will be held between 18-19 June at the Coventry Building Society Arena where the MVC visitors will also have the unique opportunity to visit the co-located Automation UK which showcases the latest automation and robotics all under one roof. 


Machine vision solutions have already been applied to many industries, from food, beverage and pharmaceutical to healthcare, automotive, traffic and transport. Implementing these solutions has been recognised as offering significant benefits to various businesses by enhancing process efficiency, which often results in improved financial performance. 


The versatility and adaptability of machine vision technology can be used for automated inspection, object recognition and defect detection, which will in return minimise errors and reduce wastage. Through incorporating these solutions, businesses can streamline their operations, improve quality control and boost productivity. It is proven that in fast-growing industries, businesses who embrace and take advantage of these innovative machine vision solutions will benefit from improving their overall performance and competitiveness. 


The MVC’s reputation to provide an impressive and comprehensive machine vision event attracts a diverse range of visitors, including those from big global brands. These companies are keen to discover the latest innovative solutions to enhance their businesses. The 2023 visitors included: Airbus, BMW, DeBeers, Jaguar Land Rover, McVities Cake Company, Mercedes AMG F1, Mitsubishi Electric, Morrisons, Nestle UK, Nissan, Ocado, Panasonic, Rolls-Royce, Siemens, Sony, Tata Technologies, Tesco, The Co-Op, Unilever, Vodafone, and Warbutons. 


The event organisers, UK Industrial Vision Association (UKIVA), which is part of Automate UK alongside British Automation and Robot Association (BARA), is anticipating over a thousand visitors during the two-day event. MVC will host more than 50 well-known brands exhibiting their state-of-the-art products, services and solutions and over 40 technical presentations from leading industry experts. MVC is a ‘must attend’ event for visitors to expand their knowledge on machine vision. 


Andrew Mark Peacock, Director at Peacock Technology Ltd visited the 2023 MVC and described it as: “A unique opportunity to meet suppliers and industry experts covering the full machine vison stack.”


There are many other compelling reasons to visit MVC which provides a perfect combination for existing vision users and engineers as well as educating those new to the world of machine vision.
