Control – Quality Makes the Difference

As the world’s leading trade fair for quality assurance, Control, which takes place in Stuttgart from 09.05.2017 - 12.05.2017, brings together users from all over the world with the international market leaders and innovative suppliers of all QA related technologies, products, subsystems and complete solutions in hard and software.

With over 900 exhibitors from 32 countries around the world, Control is the number 1 source of information for all companies that see first class quality as the basis of their business success. At a very early stage, the specialist visitors gain insights into the production and test engineering spheres of the future. In this, Control relies on the transfer of knowledge and technology between research & development and the users in industry.

To achieve this objective in the best way possible, Control works intensively with the pioneering institutions of the sector. Those on board include Fraunhofer-Allianz Vision, Fraunhofer IPA, emva – european machine vision association and the German Society for Quality (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Qualität – DGQ). This concentrated know-how is made available to visitors in special exhibitions, theme parks and specialist presentations, thereby generating direct value added for users.

“If quality and productivity are not continuously improved at all times, it gives carte blanche to all competitors,” Bettina Schall as the organiser of Control summarises the existential importance of quality assurance. So, year by year, Control offers the world of specialists a world-class provision. The optimal mix of theory and practice is rounded off with forward-looking supporting events.
