See You In 2014
automatica 2012
AUTOMATICA's own take on the 2012 event and the debut of 2013's "India Automation Technology Fair" (IATF)
By RBR Staff

  • 31,000 trade visitors from more than 100 countries
  • High degree of internationalism solidifies Europe’s leading role
  • Service robotics new exhibition focal point starting from 2014
  • Norbert Bargmann announced that “AUTOMATICA is going to be one of the top trade fairs in the world in the area service robotics starting from 2014. We are going to expand this area together with our partners.” The fact that the trade fair was already well positioned in this respect could be seen by the great number of visitors at the booths of research institutes such as the German Center for Aerospace, the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation as well as the European platforms such as euRobotics and EUnited. Dr. Michael Wenzel, Managing Director of Reis Group Holding and CEO of VDMA Robotics + Automation, said: “I have seen the clear commitment of association members to Munich and AUTOMATICA. There is a clear decision for AUTOMATICA 2014 to put service robotics more strongly in the limelight. I am very pleased that there has been a closing of ranks in the industry – especially in robotics – for this strategic further development. There are already commercially successful applications in professional service robotics.”
