MecklerMedia Enters Robotic Trade Show Business With RoboUniverse in May 2015

Richard Erb to Become Executive Director of RoboUniverse

NEW YORK, Nov. 20, 2014 -- MecklerMedia Corporation (OTCQX: MECK) announced that the company will launch RoboUniverse, a new trade show and conference aimed at exploring the development and use of home, education, and business robotics, on May 12-13 at the Javits Convention Center in New York City.


Richard Erb, who has served as the General Manager for RoboBusiness since 2011, will join MecklerMedia as the Executive Director of the RoboUniverse trade show series worldwide.

"There has been incredible growth in the robotics industry recently, yet there is no significant worldwide trade show that analyzes the educational, business, and technical opportunities within the space," says Alan Meckler, CEO of MecklerMedia. "Just as we've become leaders in 3D printing and cryptocurrency conferences, we hope to be in the same position with robotics by the end of 2015."
