After a year of record robotics sales across the world, what better way to finish up a trailblazing 2022 than with the UK’s largest exhibition of its kind? With an exciting range of industry-leading exhibitors signed up, including Beckhoff, Mitsubishi Electric, Universal Robots and KNAPP, this is an essential opportunity for those working in the robotics and automation industries.

The two-day exhibition will showcase the very latest developments that the field of industrial and manufacturing robots has to offer, from artificial intelligence, automated storage and retrieval systems, collaborative robots and autonomous mobile robots to machine-vision technology, sensors, palletisers and the latest advances in picking and sorting.

Visitors to Robotics and Automation 2022 will comprise key decision-makers and procurement officers from organisations across a wide range of buying groups and sectors, including retail, healthcare, pharmaceutical, automotive, logistics and warehousing, general manufacturing and food and beverage sectors.

Some of those who have already registered to attend include heads of engineering, logistics directors, product developers, warehouse operations managers, heads of supply chains and manufacturing directors from a variety of market-leading and influential brands, including ASDA, Balfour Beatty, BMW, Caterpillar, Coca-Cola Europacific Partners, DHL, Jaguar-Land Rover, John Lewis and Partners, Kohler, Siemens, TDK and many more.

With more than 44% of these companies bringing more than £1m to spend on new solutions, this year’s event represents a key opportunity to impress buyers. In fact, some 83% of registered attendees say they are in the market for new robotic systems, 65% are actively seeking automated assembly machines and systems and more than half are interested in buying parts handling equipment, conveyors and materials.

Other attendee interests vary across industrial automation control, sensors and sensor-integrated systems, automatic identification, data collection and machine safety. What’s clear is that those attending this year’s show have a strong appetite to invest in new and innovative solutions.

On that note, Robotics and Automation 2022 will provide a timely platform for visitors to take advantage of current financial incentives, primarily in the form of the UK government’s super-deduction tax cut, which offers 130% first-year relief on qualifying main rate plant and machinery investments until 31 March 2023 to British businesses of all sizes that pay corporation tax.

And if that wasn’t enough, visitors will also have the chance to learn from an impressive line-up of speakers across 21 conference sessions. The Robotics and Automation Conference will provide the perfect opportunity for attendees to receive insights on trends, best practice and key guidance from experts with decades of combined industry experience, as well as a venue for networking and blending with peers from a variety of industries utilising robotics and automation.

Among the impressive line-up of speakers this year will be Damien Skinner, country manager for UK and Ireland at HAI Robotics, Stewart Miller, CEO of The National Robotarium, Esyin Chew, director of Eureka Robotics Centre at Cardiff Metropolitan University, Simon Woodward, head of accelerated innovation and digitalisation at DHL Supply Chain, Suzy Harris, head of army experimentation at the UK Ministry of Defence, and plenty more!

Stands are still available for next year’s show, Robotics and Automation 2023, which will be co-located with IntraLogisteX 2023 at the NEC in Birmingham.
