Record Attendance for the Robotics Industry Forum


Last week we had an outstanding turnout for our annual Robotics Industry Forum down in Orlando, Florida. Over 350 professionals from the robotics, vision, and motion control industries gathered for three days of exceptional speakers, business-building networking, and market insights. Samuel Bouchard, CEO of Robotiq, summarized his findings at the conference nicely:

Robotics Industry Forum 2012: 10 interesting things that I’ve learned

3. Robots DO create jobs

Who said that: Mike Wilson, British Automation and Robotic Association
This did not surprise the robotic folks listening to the talk, but everybody was glad to finally see serious numbers that prove this important statement. In fact, a recent study from the International Federation of Robotics indicates that every industrial robot that is installed will create 1 or 2 jobs.

To read the other nine valuable points gleaned from the conference, visit our LinkedIn RIA group page. Did you attend the Forum? What did you find of interest?

The Robotics Industry Forum is an annual members-only conference co-located with the AIA Business Conference and MCA Business Conference. If you don’t want to miss another exciting year, you can learn more about membership on the RIA website. We hope you’ll join us next year for another record-breaking event!
