As a resource to the event and its participants, MassRobotics will deliver insights into emerging areas of robotics, the needs of robotics startups – especially in components and technical requirements, topic topics for presenters of Robotics Summit to address, industry connections, and more.
At the Robotics Summit & Expo, MassRobotics will once again showcase dozens of startups in its Resident Startup Alley, giving attendees the opportunity to explore innovative, emerging ideas and technologies in the robotics industry.
Reinforcing its commitment to robotics for healthcare, MassRobotics will feature startup participants in its most recent Healthcare Robotics Catalyst Program and host a session highlighting MassRobotics Healthcare Robotics Catalyst program participants with -enabled technology pitch.
The expo floor will include an area for MassRobotics Robotics Form and Function Challenge where university teams will present their projects, highlighting technologies from the many MassRobotics partner companies. The first prize of $25K for the challenge will be announced on the second day of the conference, along with $5K for the second and third place finishers of the challenge. Attendees will also have the opportunity to participate by voting for an “Audience Choice Award” that will award $5K to the chosen team.
At the end of the Summit, MassRobotics will host a Technical Career Fair with more than 20 hiring companies. Job seekers who register to attend the career fair are offered complimentary expo passes for the second day of the conference.
