The leading summit on global robotics is unveiling a new organization, setting out on a tour of Europe in order to get even closer to key players in the sector. First stop: The Docks de Paris, where the upcoming edition will take place on 24, 25 and 26 May 2016 in the French capital.
Innorobo kicks off its tour of Europe. First stop: Paris, France
Innorobo is Europe’s leading summit of the world robotics community. The show’s 5th edition, held in Lyon from 1 to 3 July 2015, brought together over 200 exhibitors from around the globe, 350 speakers, world experts and CEOs and senior managers from companies that design or use today’s and tomorrow’s robotics technologies.
For its 6th edition, Innorobo is taking on a new dimension. In 2016, for the first time ever, the show will open its doors in Paris for a three-day panorama showcasing the state of the art of robotics technologies from around the world, with a larger exhibition hall, conferences featuring renowned specialists in the field and a number of workshops and demonstration areas.
Unlike sector-specific events (catering to industrial automation, smart regions, smarts homes, transportation, etc.), Innorobo showcases robotics technologies to a wide range of industries, thus promoting cross-innovation and providing players in a number of sectors with new opportunities for growth and diversification. Like the Internet, robotics technologies are nearly boundless, helping to shape innovation throughout society as a whole. Innorobo brings together all of these sectors in 6 core themes rolled out for the 2015 edition:
Technologies & Foresight;
Medical & Health;
Factories of the Future;
“Innorobo 2015 was 30% bigger than the 2014 edition, illustrating the 12% growth in the industrial robotics sector and 28% expansion of the personal service robotics market in 2014,” said Catherine Simon, CEO of Innoecho, during her presentation of the results of this year’s event. “In 2015, Innorobo exhibitors displayed a host of robotics innovations for the first time in France, or even in Europe, proving just how dynamic this sector is.”
New destinations that reflect the event’s positioning
By taking the exhibition on a road trip throughout Europe starting in 2016, Innoecho, the impact consultancy firm that organizes the Innorobo event, aims to align the event’s ambitions – to be Europe’s premier forum for global robotics innovations – with local specificities and the needs of key players in the robotics sphere.
“We will now be changing host cities on a regular basis in order to get even closer to industry professionals, local companies and European decision-makers. This is why Innorobo 2016 will be held at the Docks de Paris from 24 to 26 May 2016.” “continued Catherine Simon, who founded the Innorobo exhibition in 2011.
A new approach to the event embodied in an enhanced visual identity
Innorobo’s visual identity clearly states our desire to enrich the relationships between players in the global ecosystem by sparking a dialog that is at once visionary and pragmatic. As well, the new logo illustrates the one-of-a-kind potential that robotics innovations hold.
Robotic technologies and systems offer solutions for the major challenges our society is facing and help to improve our quality of life. Based on this shared conviction, we have built and developed a human-scale event that brings together industrial decision-makers, scholars renowned worldwide for their research work, senior executives from service companies, institutional representatives of robotics initiatives and pioneering entrepreneurs from the four corners of the globe. By interacting together at the show, they shape a human approach to technological progress:
