RoboBusiness Announces Launch of Chief Robotics Officer (CRO) Network Summit

RoboBusiness is proud to launch the first-ever Chief Robotics Officer (CRO) Network Summit on September 27, 2016 in San Jose, California – the day before the RoboBusiness Conference & Expo.

FRAMINGHAM, Mass., Aug. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- By 2030, 80% of multi-billion dollar companies will have a Chief Robotics Officer (CRO). The CRO is an emerging role key to achieving corporate-wide robotics adoption and is to the robotics industry what the CIO was to the computer industry in the early '80s. The newest face of C-suites, the CRO will be critical to managing the proliferation, cost and integration of robotics technology in early adopter businesses, especially where robots overlap with other operational technologies and human operators. Companies need to be prepared for this change or risk being left behind.


RoboBusiness is proud to launch the first-ever Chief Robotics Officer (CRO) Network Summit on September 27, 2016 in San Jose, California - the day before the RoboBusiness Conference & Expo. This half-day executive meeting offers companies exploring the adoption of robotics and intelligent operational systems, and technology professionals, a unique opportunity to become better prepared for robotics technology management and gain a practical and actionable vision of what the CRO role is and will become.

The Summit will cover all facets of the CRO role including:

Redefining the Chief Robotics Officer
Developing the Robotics Vision for Your Enterprise: Trends and Business Models to Consider
Implementing a Robotics Strategy Successfully
Applying Best Practices: An Open Discussion with the Experts
…and also includes a post-event networking reception for Summit attendees.

"The rapid acceleration of robotics advancements and adoption will demand an organizational response from a majority of Fortune 1,000 companies over the next 5-10 years," says Casey Nobile, RoboBusiness Chairman and Director of Robotics Trends Media. "We are excited to be at the forefront of raising awareness of this transformation and to offer organizational solutions as well as a community network to help companies prepare for it now and for years to come."
