BOSTON, Sept. 18, 2014 -- Robots will invade Boston October 15-17 during RoboBusiness, the leading business development event for the global robotics market.

"RoboBusiness was founded on the principle that new businesses, partnerships and investment result when all members of the international robotics community come together to network," said Dan Kara, ABI Research's Practice Director for Robotics and RoboBusiness 2014 co-chair "Over the years, that vision has been proven true. RoboBusiness is the place where ideas become reality."

RoboBusiness has an exciting list of keynote speakers this year, including:

Throughout the event, breakout sessions and workshops will focus on the following tracks: Business Development, Commercial Design Trends, Disruptive Applications and Enabling Technologies

To kick off the conference, RoboBusiness will honor and highlight companies contributing remarkable technological accomplishments to their markets. The Game Changer Awards will recognize robotic products that demonstrate outstanding advancements in a variety of technology categories. Winners will be announced during the welcome reception the first night of the conference.

Startups also have their moment to shine:

*Pitchfire - Fifteen selected startups each receive 2 minutes to pitch their business concept to a panel of VC judges.

*Startup & Investor Matchmaking - A private networking reception immediately following the Pitchfire event specifically for startups and investors.

"RoboBusiness acts as a rallying place for everyone involved in bringing cutting edge robotics to the marketplace," said Casey Nobile, Robotics Trends Media's Chief Content Manager and RoboBusiness 2014 co-chair. "This is not simply a conference where we discuss what's happening, we are making it happen."
