DVT to Host Vision Industry Leaders at Global Business Conference
8th annual event expected to break attendance records

Duluth, GA, April 2, 2004 – The JW Marriott in Summerlin (Las Vegas) Nevada will be the site of DVT’s 2004 Global Business Conference and User Group Meeting (GBC). Participants from around the world will gather September 12-16 to hear top industry experts and participate in a variety of training programs, industry breakout sessions and management development seminars. Program details and registration information is available at www.dvtglobal.com.

Keynote speakers scheduled for this year’s event include Robert Steinke, Chairman & CEO of DVT Corporation; James Hunter, Management Consultant and author of the pivotal book on leadership, “The Servant Leader”; and Dr. Sung Won Sohn, Executive VP & Chief Economist, Wells Fargo Banks. Dr. Sohn was chosen by Bloomberg magazine as one of the nation’s top five forecasters of economic growth. He has also served on the President’s Council of Economic Advisors. The program will also include vision experts from Fortune 500 end-user companies, system integrators, illumination and optics companies who will conduct more than 120 breakout sessions during the four and one half day event.

In addition to the business meeting and breakout sessions, attendees can visit an interactive vision exhibition where more than 45 leading companies in the areas of vision, lighting, optics, robotics, motion control and automation systems are expected to participate. Experts from each of the exhibiting companies will be on-hand to answer questions and provide assistance on vision applications.

Corporate sponsors at DVT’s 2003 Business Conference included leading technical publications such as Assembly, Control Design, Control Engineering, Packaging World, Test & Measurement, and Quality; and global manufacturing companies such as CTC/Parker Automation, Siemens and Rockwell Automation. Speaking of the Global Business Conference, DVT Chairman and CEO Bob Steinke noted, “This event has grown from a single meeting room eight years ago to the premiere vision event in the industry today. Last year’s conference attracted more than 550 participants from 28 countries on six continents. The response from past guests, exhibitors and sponsors has been phenomenal and I expect this year’s event to break all prior records for attendance, exhibitors and value.”

End-user attendees at the 2004 GBC can participate in a free vision system give-away by registering early for the meeting and attending the General Business Session on September 13 and product training on the 14th, 15th and 16th. A minimum of 100 vision systems will be given away with a total value of more than $500,000. Additional incentives are available to System Integration companies who are interested in joining DVT’s Certified System Integrator program.

Speaking of the promotion, DVT Director of Marketing Bob Settle commented, “This marks the second year that we will give away more than 100 vision systems and free product training to our end-users. In fact, every attendee will receive a full working version of our latest vision software absolutely free. As with all DVT users, future software upgrades will also be provided free of charge.”

”This program is just one example of our corporate philosophy of Servant Leadership,” Settle continued. “In fact, meeting participants will be able to attend one of several workshops on Servant Leadership conducted by renowned author, James C. Hunter.”
