Advancements in robotics and intelligent systems technologies make it possible for businesses to operate in wholly new ways to drive down costs, optimize performance, and generate revenue. As a result, corporate executives are demanding that their company’s level of automation be increased often using robotics solutions. In other cases, businesses both large and small are seeking to introduce wholly new classes of products and services, or ‘robotize’ existing product lines.
The robotics and intelligent systems sector is currently undergoing rapid growth, much like the early days of the PC, e-commerce and mobile communications markets. However, while the robotics opportunity landscape is very large and intersects with a broad range of industries, the complexity of developing robotics systems has limited innovation, becoming a gating factor for the production of new classes of useful robotic systems and technologies.
Events can support the robotics developer community – and the solutions providers supporting them – in a number of ways, including providing a forum to learn from industry leaders, exchange information with their peers and evaluate the latest tools and techniques for building robotics products and technologies. But massive industry specific trade shows offer little to those seeking technical information on producing new classes of robotics and intelligent systems solutions. Similarly, robotics events produced by associations only emphasize the narrow range of topics an individual group is promoting, while academic conferences do not speak to the development of products with an eye to their commercial potential.
In this webinar, Dan Kara, VP, Robotics at WTWH Media will introduce the Robotics Summit and Showcase, a new event dedicated to addressing the technical issues involved with the design, development and manufacturing of commercial robotics and intelligent systems products and services. Topics include:
- Robotics and Intelligent Systems
- The Commercial Opportunity Landscape
- An Underserved Market
- The Robotics Summit and Showcase
- The Robotics Summit Tracks
- The Robotics Summit Showcase
- Who Will Attend
- The Value Proposition For Sponsors
- Robotics Summit Marketing
- Sponsorship Packages
- Concluding Remarks
