The fourth edition had a considerable flow of visitors, doubling exhibitors and exhibition area, significantly increasing the number of international companies present and, therefore, strengthening its leading role – also at international level.
Robotica 2012, the only Italian trade fair event in the field of humanoid and service robots, which took place from 7 to 9 November at fieramilano, Rho, was visited by 6,300 operators, who determined the important success of this fast growing event.
The fourth edition of Robotica had 66 exhibitors, 56 of which Italian and 10 international. Compared to the 2011 edition, the number of exhibitors more than doubled, while the number of international companies increased by as much as 150%, exceeding 15% of the total number (9.7% in 2011). As per European Community rules, Robotica can therefore now be called an international fair. Countries represented were United Kingdom, France, Japan, Russia, Switzerland and Poland. This year, the total exhibition area of the event was 4,400 square metres, more than double that of last year.
The conference sessions, which attracted considerable interest, were attended by 520 operators, who provided important ideas to think about with regards to the development of the world of robots and, consequently, on how our future will be.
The next edition of the fair will see the premiere of an exhibition illustrating the history of the robot, which goes back as far as 30,000 years. The story of robots will take visitors on a fascinating journey with distant origins but whose most surprising pages remain to be written
