We had a feeling last December that aligning our 2014 schedule of webcasts with our research reports was an idea that would resonate well with our audience, and we were more than right.
Thank you to everyone who liked our “twofer” approach, and a special thanks to all who, because of them, have recently become members of Robotics Business Review.
Glorious Twofers: Research Reports and Webcasts Aligned
We took the hottest topics in robotics and made them into dual-impact media: first as research reports to offer in-depth, actionable information, and at the same time, as webcasts to provide real-life interviews with the people who are pushing robotics forward.
Robotics Business Review has now produced the first three of our aligned webcasts and research reports to a wonderful reception from our global audience.
The impact of these “twofers” was especially pronounced among colleges and universities offering degrees in robotics. Listen, read and learn in a one-stop format was much appreciated.
For industry watchers, like investors and competing companies, the 30- to 40-page research reports were a quick way to get well informed on a specific technology, while each webcast provided a forum where they could not only listen to veterans from those technologies but also ask questions of them.
One-third of our way through the 2014 schedule, we are very heartened that the idea — and all the hard work our staff put in producing them — has engaged such a wide and diverse global audience.
I wrote 2013’s Healthcare Robotics update; and this year’s 2014 edition, with both the Affordable Care Act ramping up and the healthcare robotics industry grown so much stronger, will be an exciting research report to compare and contrast with 2013’s.
How this industry has shaken out over the past twelve months and which technologies and which companies are pulling ahead is quite fascinating.
So, please get acquainted with Emmet’s Healthcare Robotics report, and then catch up with him and his guests on the accompanying Healthcare Robotics webcast.
Come July, revisit with Jim Nash, the author of the extremely popular Safe at Any Speed that covered driverless vehicles, as he offers up Robotics in Oil, Gas & Mining. What’s happening in those three industries borders on the truly mind blowing.
Then in early August, we’ll roll out Robotics in Advanced Manufacturing. Again, another place were awesome happenings are afoot in a big way.
Following Advanced Manufacturing come our offerings during the fourth quarter of 2014. These final three twofers will conclude our first year of aligned webcasts and research reports.
Feeling very frisky about themselves, our editorial team is already planning the twofer schedule for 2015. Let me say this about what I’ve seen of it so far: It’s very bold! I’ll leave it at that until we publish the full schedule in December.
For early January 2015, this same editorial crew is planning a day-long program that we are putting on at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
In January of this year, we put on a half-day program: Consumer Robotics: The Next Trillion-Dollar Market; and now, back by popular demand, we’ve been asked to extend our consumer robotics track for the CES audience.
Just preceding that CES venue in consumer robotics, we’ll be running our last twofer for the year on, you guessed it, Consumer Robotics (Dec. 2).
Please join us for every webcast for 2014. If you missed the first three, they have been archived and are ready for you here.
And finally, a very massive thank you from all of us at Robotics Business Review for your wonderful interest in what we are all about, and for your truly persistent loyalty in coming to visit us so often and for spending so much of your valuable time on our pages.
You, dear readers, make our day…every day!
