RoboBusiness Europe

Dates: May 26 – 28, 2014
Location: Billund, Denmark

RoboBusiness Europe is a first-of-its-kind robotics event for the Continent. The purpose of RoboBusiness Europe is to provide a platform for robotic developers and end-users to meet and bridge the development within robotics with the end-users’s needs. It is the 2014’s must-attend industry event for bringing robotics to market: how-to tactics, financing, building partnerships, marketplace strategies and commercializations. It’s all about how to create successful competitive advantages.

The event is directed specifically at the EU robotics marketplace and the Euro research ecosystem. Hot topics this year: Healthcare & Well-being, Automotive, Energy, Agriculture, Industrial, Education (STEM), Play & Learning, Drones for Civilians Applications, Big Science Installations.

For 2014 the conference program will offer an unprecedented opportunity to get end-users perspective from a wide array of market segments — healthcare & well-being, automotive, energy, agriculture, industrial, education (STEM), play & learning. The exposition floor will feature the latest robotics technologies, giving all the participants the information and connections needed to plan for, build, finance and manage a successful robotics business.

The ROBOMATCH matchmaking event at RoboBusiness Europe will take place once again. ROBOMATCH addresses the needs of individuals for organized, one-to-one appointments between companies, research centres and universities thath might have interest in bilateral meetings for technological and commercial purposes and also in acquiring potential cooperation partners in the European robotics industry.

Moreover, on May 28 attendees are given two unique opportunities: visit a flight demonstration at Drone Air Show that will take place at Hans Christian Andersen Airport in Odense, within the framework of the ISARRA 2014 conference and join us for an inside tour of LEGO’s factory to get a rare and unique sneak peek of the place where the iconic brick is produced.

Join us at RoboBusiness Europe for a high-level robotics business conference designed as an executive-level, thought-sharing forum to connect growth-oriented decision makers with like-minded executives in the business of robotics.
