FRAMINGHAM, Mass., and DELFT, the Netherlands — EH Media announced today that its Robotics Division will merge with TUS Expo to form the new global entity Robo Business Media. This merger creates the largest events and media company for robotics in the world.

The Robotics Division of EH Media brings with it its two leading digital publications — Robotics Business Review and Robotics Trends — as well as the long-standing and highly regarded RoboBusiness conference.

These brands will meld with the drone-related activities of TUSExpo BV, the Dutch owner of European trade shows and conferences such as The Unmanned Systems (TUS) Expo and the recently acquired TUS Nordics event. Together, they will form an international powerhouse of integrated media and events for robotics: Robo Business Media (RBM).

The newly formed company will have offices in Delft, Framingham, and Odense, Denmark. RBM already has four events planned in the next 12 months in The Hague; Santa Clara, Calif.; Odense; and Bangkok.

RBM will also accelerate the rollout of industry-focused events such as the Chief Robotics Officer (CRO) Network Summits and one-day Masterclasses.

In addition, media brands Robotics Business Review and Robotics Trends will expand their international reach and provide readers with year-round news and analysis with increased reporting from around the world.

Serving the growing global robotics ecosystem

“Robotics is growing rapidly, and the market is becoming increasingly fragmented, with multiple countries and regions at different stages of development,” stated Ken Moyes, president of EH Media. “This merger establishes a dedicated, international robotics events and media company capable of delivering critical information and networking opportunities to support this complex ecosystem and the development of new robotics strategies.”

“We look forward to all that we’ll be able to accomplish as one team,” Moyes said.

“The fact that we merge the unmanned systems and robotic industries on the one side, and combine American and European events and media initiatives at the other side, gives Robo Business Media a unique and strong international position,” said Niels Westendorp, co-founder of TUS Expo. “The dynamics of a Pan-Atlantic team will boost the company’s acceleration and innovative power. More importantly, the merger enables us to serve this emerging market worldwide.”

Robo Business Media has a widespread partner network and a strategic partnership with RoboValley of the Delft University of Technology.
