Machine Vision Networking in Italy 
Parma Vision Night - registration is open
First time introduced in 2016 the ‘Parma Vision Night’ is very well received by visitors and exhibitors of the SPS show in Parma. Representatives of local Italian vision players and globally acting corporations meet and enjoy the networking in a restaurant located in the city center of Parma.

The successful events in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 were high motivation for the EMVA and Messe Frankfurt Italy to again jointly offer this networking event especially for the Italian vision community in 2023.

The Parma Vision Night, the yearly appointment dedicated to the industry of vision systems, returns for the fifth time.

SPS IPC Drives Italy is the yearly trade show bringing automation suppliers and manufactures together and covering the whole range of products, from electrical components to complete integrated automation systems. A benchmark for the Italian market where efficiency, productivity, competitiveness and innovation meet. Go to event ›
