Business-to-business publisher WTWH Media, the parent company of The Robot Report, announced MassRobotics will serve as the exclusive Strategic Partner for the Robotics Summit & Expo to be held on May 10-11 in Boston. In that role, MassRobotics will provide strategic guidance and act as a liaison to MassRobotics’ global community, including partners, sponsors, startup residents, and the robotics community at large.

As a resource to the event and its participants, MassRobotics will deliver insights into emerging areas of robotics, the needs of robotics startups – especially around components and technical requirements, topical subject matter for Robotics Summit presenters to address, industry connections, and more.

MassRobotics Activities 

At the Robotics Summit & Expo, MassRobotics will once again showcase dozens of startups in its Resident Startup Alley, which gives attendees an opportunity to explore innovative, emerging ideas and technology in the robotics industry. 

Reinforcing its commitment to robotics for healthcare, MassRobotics will feature startups participating in its most recent Healthcare Robotics Catalyst Program and will host a session highlighting MassRobotics Healthcare Robotics Catalyst program participants with enabling technology pitches.  

The expo floor will include an area for the MassRobotics Form & Function Robotics Challenge where university teams will showcase their projects, highlighting technologies from many MassRobotics partner companies. A first prize of $25K for the challenge will be announced on day two of the conference, along with $5K for second- and third-place challenge finishers. Attendees will also have the opportunity to participate by voting for an “Audience Choice Award” that will provide $5K to the selected team. 

At the conclusion of the Summit, MassRobotics will host a Technical Career Fair with more than 20 hiring companies. Job seekers who register to attend the career fair are offered complimentary expo passes for the second day of the conference.

“MassRobotics represents robotics startups from around the globe and we’re 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.”

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, 70+ resident startups, and 40 strategic partners. The organization’s unique 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. 

The Robotics Summit & Expo is focused on the technical issues involved with the design, development and scalability of commercial robots. The Summit brings together the brightest minds in robotics throughout the world to share their expertise on a variety of topics, including enabling technologies, design and development tools and techniques, manufacturability and more.

“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 Steve Crowe, Executive Editor, Robotics, WTWH Media and Chair of the Robotics Summit & Expo. “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.”

The Robotics Summit & Expo is a brand extension of The Robot Report, an online resource focused on gathering industry news and exploring the business and applications of robotics. The expo portion of the Robotics Summit will offer attendees hands-on access to the latest design and development solutions from 100+ companies, while the Robotics Summit conference program will provide technical professionals with the information they need to successfully develop and deploy the next generation of commercial class robotics systems and services.

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 commercial healthcare robots. Also co-located with the Robotics Summit is DeviceTalks Boston, the premier industry event for medical technology professionals, currently in its ninth year. Both events attract engineering and business professionals from a broad range of healthcare and medical technology backgrounds.
