RoboBusiness Europe and TUS Expo, which have established themselves as premier robotics and unmanned systems events in Europe, plan to build on the success of the 1st International Robotics Week for 2018.
Robo Business Media has chosen Rotterdam as the location for Robo Business Europe and TUS Expo 2018. Due to strong efforts from Rotterdam Partners, which highlighted the city's potential because of its status as a place of modern business and technology, RoboBusiness Europe and TUS Expo are excited to build upon the previous year's success. The events take place from 13 to 15 February 2018.
RoboBusiness Europe and the TUS Expo are both part of the 2nd International Robotics Week, a collection of events focused on robotics, artificial intelligence (AI) and unmanned systems. Both events will be held at the WTC Rotterdam. Martijn van Dijk, co-founder of Robo Business Media, comments: "Rotterdam's key business sectors, which include medical, agri-food, cleantech, maritime services and logistics, match up perfectly with the robotics and unmanned systems industries. These factors, together with the City of Rotterdam's willingness to work with us on the overall programme, made the decision to choose Rotterdam a logical one."
RoboBusiness Europe explores innovations in robotics and AI. Conference sessions discuss the development and use of robotics and AI across a multitude of vertical markets, led by experts in their respective fields. The trade show enables visitors to explore the latest in robotics and AI and find out how companies are jumping into opportunities in this field.
TUS Expo is described as the best place to engage with unmanned systems experts and create connections with fellow attendees, exhibitors and potential partners. Visitors can experience product launches and learn how to grow their businesses through the latest in robotics and unmanned systems technology. The conference sessions will include developments in unmanned systems and innovations in all related markets.
Attendees will also be able to choose from at least 15 supporting events, enabling them to explore topics of interest in more depth. The following events will be among the full list of offerings in 2018:
- Live indoor and outdoor drone and robotics demonstrations
- Hydrographic Society Benelux Summit
- Live indoor and outdoor maritime demonstrations
- Startup Pitch fire event

Maarten Struijvenberg, Rotterdam's Vice Mayor for Employment and Economy, states: "From the port, to the hospital, to the greenhouse, robotics play an integral part of daily operations in Rotterdam. Hosting this event in Rotterdam will not only encourage further development of current industries, but also foster the right environment for start-ups seeking to position themselves. We are pleased to be working closely with all the involved parties to make this a success."
