The E-18 expands with a robot fair
When the E-18 runs from the stack d. 11th – 13th September, it will be parallel to a new independent robot fair. The new robot fair gets strong players from the robot industry and will be established in another exhibition hall. This will make the show bigger than ever.
There are many synergies between robots and electronics, and therefore we believe that it will benefit both the electronics industry and the robot industry to expand a robot fair.
“I am sure that the addition of new exhibitors and visitors from the robot industry will help boost E-18. It has long been an attractive market for the electronics industry, and since Odense has been named ‘robotic capital’, I see it as natural linking the electronics industry and the robot industry closer together during the E-18, says Michael Helm, trade manager from the Odense Congress Center.
With the expansion of another hall, expectations for the number of visitors and exhibitors have also risen. In 2016, E-16 visited record records with 3600 visitors and 142 exhibitors.
A showcase for the robot industry
At the robot cluster, Odense Robotics, it is the excitement that the robot industry becomes part of the E-18.
“Odense has come to the world map as a leading robotics technology center – and this trade fair can help strengthen the position further. With the fair, robotic companies and subcontractors get a unique showcase where they can meet customers, partners and potential employees. I’m looking forward to seeing yet another initiative that can support the growth of robotic companies and showcase the robotic industry of Odense, says Mikkel Christoffersen, Business Manager of Odense Robotics.
Odense Robotics plans to attend the robot fair with activities and a stand together with a number of robot cluster start-up companies. In addition, the robot company Blue Ocean will help attract keynote speakers, etc. to the fair.
