Introducing the Vention Experience Center

April 24, 2023 | Quinn Harker


On April 20th, 2023, Vention opened the Vention Experience Center (VXC). Located in our Montreal headquarters, the VXC is a one-of-a-kind training and development center for visitors to experience the latest innovations in industrial automation.

Aligned with Vention’s mission to democratize industrial automation, this center aims to make automation more accessible to all manufacturers through interactive demonstrations, trainings, and educational sessions from our team of automation and deployment experts. Within one space, individuals of all levels can experience the full reach of the Manufacturing Automation Platform and leave with the skills and knowledge to design, automate, order, and deploy automated solutions themselves. The VXC is open to all industrial automation practitioners, free of charge.

“This new center is reinforcing our commitment to the future of industrial automation,” said Etienne Lacroix, CEO and Co-Founder of Vention. “We wanted to create an environment where manufacturers can see, touch, and try out the latest technology—gaining valuable skills that they can then take and apply to their own manufacturing floors.”

Your visit to the Vention Experience Center

The Vention Experience Center is designed to be an immersive and interactive space for visitors to engage with automation technology. Visit the VXC at any stage of your automation journey to learn about the new solutions, validate a project, and advance your industrial automation skills and knowledge from design to deployment.
