The Robotics Summit & Expo is a multifaceted, international event focused on the technical issues involved with the design, development, manufacture and delivery of commercial-class robotics systems. The Summit brings together the brightest minds in robotics throughout the world to share their expertise on a variety of topics throughout four tracks: Technologies, Tools and Platforms; Design and Development; Manufacturability, Production and Distribution; and a bonus track about Autonomous Mobile Robots.

"The success of the Robotics Summit & Expo clearly demonstrates the need for a world-class, technical conference specifically designed for those developing commercial-class robotics systems," said Dan Kara, VP of Robotics at WTWH Media. "Working in partnership with MassRobotics, we are bringing together in one place and at one time the leading companies and brightest minds developing the next-generation of robotics systems and services."

MassRobotics is helping to create and scale the next generation of successful robotics and connected devices companies by providing entrepreneurs and innovative robotics startups with the workspace and resources they need to develop, prototype, test, and commercialize their products and solutions. MassRobotics is currently leading a cluster of the highest concentration of robotics companies in the world with approximately 400 companies, 65 resident startups, and 40 strategic partners. The organization's unique "escalator" model allows startups to get established, grow, scale, and provide meaningful employment for the future workforce and to provide ongoing value for MassRobotics's partner organizations.

"MassRobotics is excited to once again support the Robotics Summit & Expo as the exclusive Strategic Partner," said Tom Ryden, Executive Director, MassRobotics. "Boston is a leading international robotics innovation cluster, and as such the Robotics Summit presents the perfect opportunity for technical and business professionals from around the world to share knowledge, experience and insights with the goal of driving robotics technology development and innovation forward."

The Robotics Summit & Expo will feature 100-plus exhibitors, 50-plus speakers, the MassRobotics Engineering Career Fair, a Design for Additive Manufacturing Workshop, and networking receptions. Attendees also have the chance to test drive Boston Dynamics' Spot quadruped. Full conference passes are $795, while expo-only passes are just $100. Academic discounts are available and academic full conference rates are $295.

Co-Located Events
The Robotics Summit & Expo will be co-located with the Healthcare Robotics Engineering Forum, a conference focused on easing and speeding the development of the next generation of healthcare robotics solutions.
