Control – international and invaluable 10 March 2023

The 35th Control, an international trade fair for quality assurance, will take place from 9th – 12th May 2023 in Stuttgart, Germany, with the show focussing on the issues of vision technology, image processing and sensor technology, as well as measuring and test technology – across all industries. 

Control is one of the most important, large international trade fairs covering the field of quality assurance. “We’re pleased that more bookings have now already been received than at the same time in 2022”, reports Fabian Krüger, project manager for trade fair promoters P. E. Schall. “At nearly 37%, the proportion of foreign exhibitors already exceeds the figures for 2022. The innovations in quality control and quality assurance presented in halls 3, 5, 7 and 9 are sure to arouse lots of interest and curiosity.” 

Measuring and test technologies continue to develop at a rapid pace – on the one hand because new fields of application are opening up, and on the other hand because increasing automation continues its role as a key driver. “As representatives of the exhibitor community as a whole, our exhibitor advisory committee recently reiterated the importance of Control,” adds Fabian. “Control is by far the world’s best trade fair in the field of quality assurance. It’s entirely unique throughout the global market because it features different types of metrology and is thus relevant for all industry sectors.”

That is why Control 2023 will present further developments covering all aspects of measuring and test technology, materials testing, analysis equipment, vision technology, image processing and sensor technology, weighing and counting technology, as well as AI supported software tools. 

“We’re looking forward to the 35th Control in the spring of 2023,” explains Bettina Schall, managing director of P. E. Schall. “Exhibitors, as well as expert visitors, appreciate the thematic focus of Control as an industry highlight. This makes the trade fair a highly esteemed business platform.”
