The Vision Show, North America’s largest machine vision trade show and conference, will be held in Phoenix, Arizona, at the Phoenix Convention Center, March 31 – April 2. This is the first time the show will be located in Phoenix.

Phoenix was chosen for the 2009 show and accompanying conference due to its high concentration of semiconductor manufacturing companies (ranking 4th in the nation); the growing number of federal defense contracts held; and because of significant aerospace exports, an industry increasingly relevant to machine vision and imaging. There is a very diverse concentration of industries using machine vision technologies in the five or six states surrounding Arizona as well. In addition to the Midwestern and Southern states, Phoenix will draw attendees and exhibitors from nearby California, New Mexico, Nevada, Colorado and Utah, and even Mexico.

The 2008 show and conference were recently held in Boston, Massachusetts on June 10-12. The show featured the largest exhibitor base in about 10 years with 112 companies displaying their technologies (a 30% increase over the last show). Attendance increased by over 5% with well over 2,500 registered attendees and the conference brought in 170 attendees.

The trade show is free for advanced registrants, and the conference offers low-cost passes. Up-to-date information about The Vision Show can be found at
