EMVA announces change of conference venue 12 – 14 May 2022

2022 EMVA Business Conference in Brussels, Belgium

EMVA plans in-person conference and counts on safe conditions in Belgium

After two years of having shifted the EMVA annual highlight event to a virtual format, the EMVA Board and Management are looking forward to a ‘normal’ EMVA Business Conference in 2022. Considering the low vaccination rates in Bulgaria the originally planned destination Sofia now has been changed to Brussels, capital of the Belgium Kingdom.

We are very convinced, that Belgium in general, and the still to be choosen conference hotel in specific, offer safe conditions with view to the ongoing pandemic‘, commented Thomas Lübkemeier, EMVA General Manager, the taken decision. ‘Based on choosing Brussels we are looking forward to welcome the European machine vision community and after all these months also the business leaders from abroad again.

The conference program will address up-to-date technical topics as well as relevant management, marketing and/or leadership issues. Use cases and a panel discussion will give further interesting insights.

Last but surely not least, the conference will provide plenty of excellent networking opportunities during the evening events or by means of pre-scheduled face-to-face meetings in the conference break-out sessions.

Reduced Early-Bird fees available until 31 December 2021 only
