5 Reasons You Should Attend RoboBusiness 2019
July 24, 2019      

The falling leaves of October may be a fleeting thought as you enjoy the summer sunshine, but it’s not too early to begin preparing for RoboBusiness 2019, which kicks off on Oct. 1, 2019, in Santa Clara, Calif. The 2.5-day conference will bring together the best and brightest minds in robotics innovation and business leaders looking to deploy robotics, automation, and artificial intelligence across the commercial and industrial landscape.

To give you a sense of what you can expect, we proudly present this list of five big reasons you’ll want to attend this year’s event, now in its 15th year of providing the best content around the robotics and business ecosystem.

#1: Learn Why Robotics Matter for Your Business

Robotics is now a mature technology for many industry vertical markets, no longer just for those large corporations, automotive or electronics manufacturers, or companies looking for pilot projects. Real efficiency and operational improvements are being made through the deployment of robotics.

At the Chief Robotics Officer Summit, we will provide in-depth sessions led by industry experts and technology providers that foster discussions around building a business case for the successful implementation of robotics.

If you are the “robotics champion” at your company, or you’ve been tasked with formulating a strategy for a robotics deployment, the CRO Summit is a must-attend event to give you the tools to succeed.

#2: Rub Elbows with the Movers and Shakers in Robotics

RoboBusiness is more than just an expo floor and robotics conference – it’s a chance to meet with peers in the industry across different markets, as well as those from academics, engineering, and automation endeavors.

Networking events and receptions at RoboBusiness offer the chance to connect with colleagues or future colleagues.

Making connections (and deals) with the robotics community is a large part of RoboBusiness, and this year’s event is no different. Networking sessions include both formal and informal gatherings where you can meet, eat, drink, socialize, and trade information with those innovators across the robotics space.

Who knows? The person you’re standing next to at the cheese-and-cracker table may just be your next business partner.

#3: Witness the Innovations Shaping the Future of Robotics

We don’t plan on showing off our time-machine to bring you to 2025, but we will give you a sense of where the next big changes and innovations in robotics will occur. Several sessions at RoboBusiness 2019 will discuss the journey of robotics over the next five years, highlighting companies, technologies, and markets where robots and AI will have the largest impact.

From sessions that discuss where investor money is heading, to a look at predicting what will be big in 2025, RoboBusiness will get you firmly planted on that robotics journey for the next five years.

#4: See the Next Big Robot Companies

RoboBusiness isn’t just about established robotics companies – this young industry features a lot of startups looking to make their mark on the world.

Gray Bright, CEO of Cloud Transportation Technologies, hosted the 2018 Pitchfire event.

There are two major events scheduled for those in the startup space – our annual Pitchfire startup competition features presentations by companies looking to meet with investors and other robotics experts to help them grow; and our Startup Boot Camp, presented by MassRobotics, is a half-day workshop geared towards roboticists and other entrepreneurs that will give them the tools they need to begin or scale up their robotics business.

Even those not interested in starting their own company will find valuable information from the startups in this space, giving them a look into new ideas and innovations in robotics.

#5: Robots, Did We Mention Robots?

Our expo floor will feature robots, and lots of them. We aim to show attendees the latest and greatest from robotics companies from around the world – all working on showing how robots and humans can work together to create better efficiencies, make the world safer for work, or to just improve the quality of life for the rest of us.
