Why 2021 Will Be the Most Important Automate Show Ever
Robotic Industries Association Posted 04/22/2020
“Some facilities that were looking at getting one or two robots are now saying, ‘We need quite a bit more.’”
We are a little over a year away from the Automate Show – North America’s largest and most important robotics and automation trade show and conference, which will be held May 17-20, 2021, in Detroit, Michigan.
For more than a decade, the Automate Show has been THE PLACE to introduce new products, meet new customers, make important connections and grow your business. But now, coming out of this crisis, the Automate Show has never been more important.
The quote above from a Colorado CEO – featured recently in the New York Times – shows how critical this moment in time is for the automation industry. The tragedy and disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic has led to a new narrative around robotics and automation. Instead of being a job-stealer, robots are now seen as the way for the global economy to quickly get back on its feet – while protecting workers.
