STUTTGART, GERMANY - AIA will be hosting a networking reception Wednesday, November 5, 2008 5 to 6:30 p.m. at Vision 2008 - New Messe Stuttgart Fairgrounds Hall 6 – in the Forum, Stand 6A81, Stuttgart, Germany.

In addition to drinks, hors d'oeuvres and networking with industry peers, the program will include a brief overview of Machine Vision Markets. For convenience, this year it will be on the show floor of Hall 6 – in the area called the Forum – Industrial Vision Days (where presentations are given through out the day). The presentation will be given in English. The cost for the reception is $60 and can be paid by credit card prior to the event.

AIA also has two room blocks with a limited number of rooms in Stuttgart, which are reserved for people attending the AIA Networking Reception; by requesting a room the association will register you for the Reception and charge your credit card for the reception, but the hotel will hold your credit card information for the room reservation. NOTE: You must reserve your room through the AIA – you cannot go directly through the hotels for room blocks.

There are two properties to choose from, one near the Messe Stuttgart and one in the city center of Stuttgart.
