The factors driving (and challenging) the robotics sector are multivariate, and their interplay is complex. As such, robotics conferences should reflect this fact, and move beyond the standard approaches and the typical ‘supplier push’ and ‘end-user pull’ interactions common to an earlier era of robotics events. Conferences should also take a ‘whole cloth’ approach, highlighting how various determinants—ongoing technological innovation, political and social drivers, business and investment trends—act in confluence to accelerate robotics innovation and commercialization efforts.
The RoboBusiness Conference & Expo, now under the auspices of WTWH Media’s Robotics Group, has been reimagined and tuned in just this way. RoboBusiness has been reworked to reveal the most impactful technological advances, identify the most promising opportunities, illustrate the leading business and investment tends, as well as highlight business development initiatives designed to support robotics innovation and sector growth.
RoboBusiness will be co-located with the Field Robotics Engineering Forum, an international conference and exposition designed to provide engineers, engineering management, business professionals, and others information about how to successfully develop and safely deploy the next generation of field robotics systems for operation in wide-ranging, dynamic outdoor environments.
You can see the current list of speakers, to which more will be added, here.
The “new” RoboBusiness Conference & Expo will take place this fall on October 19-20th at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
RoboBusiness keynote speakers will include:
- Anthony Jules, Co-founder & CEO, Robust AI
- Allison Thackston, Senior Technical Lead and Manager, Roboticist, Waymo
- Sally Miller, CIO, North America, DHL Supply Chain
- Jonathan Hurst & Damion Shelton, Co-founders, Agility Robotics
- Robotics Fundraising and Investment Panel – Status, Trends, Recommendations
- Sherwin Prior, Director, Amazon Industrial Innovation Fundo
- Fady Saad, Managing Partner, Cybernetix Ventures
