Robotics and Drones Take Center Stage During RoboBusiness Europe and TUS Expo, 19-21 April 2017

Delft, the Netherlands, 29 March 2017: World renowned keynotes speakers, entrepreneurs and distinguished VIP guests will be present at the Grand Opening of the third edition of The Unmanned Systems (TUS) Expo and RoboBusiness Europe on 19 April 2017 at World Forum The Hague, the Netherlands. During the First International Robotics Week, these two popular business events join forces and become one, fully integrated, multi-layered event – in fact one of the largest b2b drones and robotics events in Europe. Over 4,000 visitors from all around the world are expected, including two hundred companies, research institutes and governmental organizations will display their latest innovations and products in the fields of robotics and unmanned vehicles, such as UAV’s, submersible drones and autonomous systems.

Extensive conference programs and exhibitions are scheduled for the three-day events at World Forum The Hague. More than sixty world renowned speakers – entrepreneurs and scientists from all over the world – give Grand Keynotes and discuss the future of robotics and drones in TechCrunch style, during panel discussions, interacting with the professional public.

The implementation of robotics and drones is taking off at high speed. There are almost no limits to the possibilities: robots for healthcare, agribusiness, surveillance, autonomous harbors, intralogistics, driverless vehicles. The number of inventions and new applications is growing exponentially. A special start-up event focuses on young unmanned and robotics entrepreneurs, giving them an opportunity to network with investors and win €20,000.

In addition to the general program, several side summits and dedicated workshops are taking place at the World Forum, such as a high-level SESAR Joint Undertaking U-Space Workshop, ROS Industrial Summit and a special meeting of Hydrographic Society Benelux. Drones and robotics are different research fields but are gradually growing towards each other. The robotics and drone specialists can share valuable information, as they often have to tackle similar technological problems.

The municipalities of Delft, The Hague, Rotterdam and Katwijk are actively involved in the First International Robotics Week. A spectacular live drone demo is planned at former naval airfield Valkenburg (Katwijk) on Thursday 20 April. At the Rotterdam dry docks (RDM) a special presentation on the theme Autonomous Harbor is held on Friday 20 April, featuring a splashing display of the latest aquabot technology. Delft University of Technology, a world leader in Robotics and Drone education and research, is also part of the program, with lab and faculty visits, a networking party and much more.

RoboBusiness Europe and TUS Expo are powered and hosted by RoboValley, initiated by the TU Delft Robotics Institute. Arthur de Crook, managing director at RoboValley: “We are the host of the First International Robotics Week and act as knowledge partner. This fully integrated event provides a unique opportunity for the Netherlands to claim its position and role at the forefront of robotics innovations currently taking place at such a record speed.”

Niels Westendorp, Co-Founder of Robo Business Media: “Combining these two events provides companies, research institutes and government organizations of both robotics and drone industries a chance to work together, to learn from each other and of course to do business. There is so much happening right now. Robotics and drones will play a very important role in our future. They will have huge impact on our society, so it is vital we manage the global implementation in a responsible way. ”

Conference tickets and exhibition tickets are available via www.tusexpo.com and www.robobusinesseurope.com. Exhibition tickets are free of charge until 15 April.
