Vision 2021: The hygiene concept of Vision 2021 is ready

International trade fair for machine vision

12.07.2021 - A four-stage hygiene concept is designed to ensure the safety of exhibitors and visitors at Vision 2021. Thus, participants must either be recovered, vaccinated or tested. In addition, masks are compulsory. Spacing through wider aisles and an increased exchange of fresh air are also part of the concept. 250 exhibitors have registered so far.

The current Corona regulation of the state of Baden-Württemberg enables Messe Stuttgart to hold the international trade fair for machine vision in a way that is safe for everyone involved, the organizer is confident. The basis is a four-stage plan that keeps the safety level stable even with increasing incidence figures and thus enables the trade fair to operate.

For example, the corona safety procedures, now familiar from everyday life, will be implemented at the exhibition center, ensuring that all participants are verifiably vaccinated, recovered or tested negative. Corresponding testing capacities are also planned on site. In addition, a general mask obligation applies - the mask can be removed in the restaurant or a catering stand as well as in the outdoor areas of the trade fair.

To ensure that visitors can relax and comply with the distance rules, the aisles are four meters wide and the areas for catering, networking and forums have been extended. In addition, building management ensures adequate fresh air exchange.

Niethammer: "We feel an enormous sense of anticipation for Vision 2021"

"Now that we have a planning basis in the form of the current Corona Ordinance issued by the State of Baden-Württemberg on June 28, we are doing everything we can to make 2021 a successful Vision year!" promises Florian Niethammer, project manager at Messe Stuttgart.  "Despite the dynamic pandemic situation and realistic expectations, we sense enormous anticipation and a great desire among all those involved that the machine vision industry and its clientele can finally meet again in person in Stuttgart," he adds.

250 exhibitors already registered

So far, the list of exhibitors includes around 250 national and international companies with their own booths. In addition, there are various joint stands as well as the start-ups of the Vision Start-up World. Overall, Niethammer and his team expect Vision to be more focused on Europe this year, due to travel restrictions and quarantine regulations that still exist.
