Industry Highlight: Control – 2020 Virtual, 2021 in Preparation

The 34th Control international trade fair for quality assurance will take place in Stuttgart from 4 to 7 May 2021 and will deal with current issues covering all aspects of vision technology, image processing and sensor technology, as well as measuring and test technology. “Control-Virtual” is also enjoying great popularity as a digital marketplace: expert visitors can view offerings presented by the exhibitors in 2020 around the clock, and get in touch with the manufacturers.


Frickenhausen, 14 July 2020 – The promoters of Control, P. E. Schall GmbH & Co. KG, have provided the exhibitors of this year’s event, which was scheduled to take place from the 5th through the 8th of May but unfortunately could not be held, with a digital marketplace which offers them the opportunity of presenting new products and solutions covering all aspects of industrial QA. Trade fair highlights are displayed in digital showrooms in a concise, compact manner. With the help of the new exhibition format offered by Control-Virtual, issues involving measuring and test technology, vision technology, image processing and sensor technology are digitally available for generating leads 24/7 around the globe. Thanks to the thematically focused search engine, visitors can ideally select any desired information covering the trade fair’s entire nomenclature. And thus the latest news concerning world premieres, product innovations and services offered by QA suppliers is made available in a structured fashion.


Digital Marketplace with Networking Tools

Control-Virtual is equipped with high quality tools for linking up QA exhibitors with the international expert audience. For example, it offers a user-friendly webcast function including an overview of all webcasts in the search results, as well as an individual problem-solving request for direct interaction with the exhibitors. And thus Control’s digital marketplace offers ideal networking opportunities which trade visitors can take advantage of all year long. The issue-specific webcast function is always online: exhibitors upload the webcasts directly for the expert visitors – they’re available as a link and/or as a downloadable PDF. As a result, Control-Virtual ensures user-friendly technical communication all over the world, within a single network and from a single source.

The world’s most important trade fair for issues covering all aspects of measuring and test technology, vision technology, image processing and sensor technology is thus adequately represented this year for all expert visitors and other interested parties. The Control-Virtual online platform is being well-received by the exhibitors, who are able to stay in touch with their target groups via this communication channel. Expert visitors can view current exhibitor offerings 24 hours a day via Control-Virtual, and contact the manufacturers. Direct access to the digital marketplace:


Industrial Quality Assurance – it’s Never Been More Important

Meanwhile, preparation is underway as planned for the next regular Control from 4 to 7 May 2021. “Bookings have gotten off to a very good start,” confirms project manager Fabian Krüger. Control is the globally recognised, world’s leading technology, communication and business platform covering all aspects of quality control in industrial production. As a result, it’s one of the most important trade fairs of the year for many companies. It’s widely regarded as an international industry highlight. Nearly 900 exhibitors were on hand at Control 2019 who once again constituted an outstanding business platform for vision technology, image processing and sensor technology, as well as measuring and test technology.

Users from all industry sectors find everything they need for zero-defects industrial production at Control – from mechatronic measuring technology and industrial image processing solutions right on up to robot-aided, consistently digitalised QA solutions for the production of diverse variants in flexible lot quantities. QA has gained in importance over the years and has never been more important than it is today. It permits a closed exchange of data within networked processes for users of test technology. The highly practical benefits which Control delivers to expert visitors are emphasised again and again, because all of the exhibitors unveil their latest QA developments and innovations at the event in a highly concentrated form unparalleled by any other trade fair.
