Sponsorship

The British Machine Vision Conference (BMVC) will return for its 27th year in September 2016, and we are pleased to invite you to participate in one of the United Kingdom’s most prestigious and longest running conferences focusing on computer vision and related areas. Held at the University of York, in one of the most beautiful and historic cities in the UK, BMVC 2016 will bring together scientists, researchers, academics, and industry experts from across the UK and overseas, with more than 80% of contributors based outside of the UK in recent years.

This yearly event is an exceptional opportunity for your company to reach the key industry leaders in computer vision and related disciplines and demonstrates your commitment to developing industry relationships with the top players within this field. By becoming a sponsor of BMVC 2016 you will become a participant in an international community where you will help to build an environment of innovation, learning, and sharing. You will find the perfect gateway to develop global brand recognition, advertisement, and even recruitment from a unique audience of both established computer vision engineers and students.
