An international B2B exhibition that showcases the latest technologies in the robotics industry, with an estimated 11,000 professional visitors. It’s a place to show products, expand commercial networks, find distributors and attend to C-level conferences.

Global Robot Expo is a B2B international exhibition on innovation, robotics and related technologies, annually held in IFEMA, Madrid, Spain. GR-EX represents a diverse community of professionals - who rarely meet in sectoral events – and features the latest advances in industrial and service robotics, artificial intelligence, industry 4.0 and aerospace technologies. The fourth edition will take place the 8th and 9th of May 2019.

Since 2011, the European Robotics Association "euRobotics" has successfully called on all European companies, institutes and institutions to bring robotics to the general public. Last year, more than 1,000 events took place in 36 countries!

Originally conceived as an initiative for schools to teach children and adolescents computer science, mathematics and sciences with robotics, the ERW has meanwhile managed to reach out to an even broader population group: robotic research institutes and companies are organizing open house days, technical museums organize special tours, competitions with robots from construction kits take place. Young people in particular are fascinated by robots. They also want to know which career opportunities are open to them. The technological change also brings new professions with it. Discussed in public events about the future of work, care, our consumer behavior - and our culture and art: Discourses on robots in movies and in music are constantly growing interest. Concentrating on a single week ensures diversity and engagement, but also takes a look beyond this week. The European dimension brings breadth and additional insights - perhaps an European perspective will also be reached that will allow us to understand and allow robotics, and which is compatible with our values and calls us to action.

In the meantime, the media is actively involved - with talk shows, discussions and documentary reports on the state of robotics and economic and social opportunities and risks. Due to the rapidly growing response, politics has also become beware of ERW, so that the ERW has been opened since 2014 from a central event with a presence in politics, business, science, education and culture (2014 Toulouse, 2015 Bristol, 2016 Amsterdam , 2017 Brussels).

Events

The 51st International Symposium on Robotics (ISR 2019 Americas) takes place at the McCormick Place in Chicago, IL, USA. The conference is organized in conjunction with the Automate show.

Sponsored by the International Federation of Robotics (IFR), the ISR is an event that is hosted all over the world, bringing new global insights on the latest in robotics applications and research. The ISR was fully integrated into the Automate 2019 conference sessions, allowing all participants to learn about the newest developments in robotics, machine vision, imaging, motion control and other automation technologies covered at Automate. The ISR also celebrated a gala dinner for the Robotic Industries Association (RIA) Joseph F. Engelberger Robotics Awards, the industry’s highest honor.

Events

Held once every two years in the United States, Automate is the broadest automation solutions event in North America, affording the best overview of the entire industry.

Featuring the latest in cutting-edge robotics, vision, motion control, and related technologies, the event attracts thousands of visitors from around the world looking for ways to enhance their processes, improve product quality, lower costs, and sharpen their competitive edge.
