With Europe’s trade fair scene being turned upside down, Universal Robots (UR) is breaking new grounds with its virtual cobot conference. From 16th-18th June, from 10am to 4pm CET all three days, the Danish cobot pioneer will host 'WeAreCOBOTS - the World's Largest Virtual Collaborative Robot Expo'.

Free of charge, visitors from all industries are invited to join, browse the virtual booths, and learn more about the numerous benefits of collaborative automation while participating in inspiring in-depth talks by cobot experts.

Having successfully held a similar online fair in Germany in April - the first of its kind - UR is now launching 'WeAreCOBOTS' across Europe in English, German, French, Spanish and Italian. With over 30 virtual booths and 50 live keynotes by a wide range of robotics experts, visitors will gain valuable insight into the future of automation.

“At Universal Robots, it has always been our aim to think out of the box and be very solution-oriented even when the challenge seems overwhelming,“ said Jürgen von Hollen, President of Universal Robots.

“Launching this virtual cobot exhibition underlines this mission and is a great new way to engage with anyone who is interested in learning more about the world of automation. With 'WeAreCOBOTS' we offer audiences within all kinds of industries and company sizes the chance to learn more about trends in automation that are especially relevant with the headwinds the world is experiencing these days,” he said, mentioning the challenges of social distancing and disrupted supply chains in a manufacturing industry trying to ensure business continuity and production uptime while keeping employees safe and sound.

“We are very excited to offer this unique, engaging virtual space where attendees can experience all the ways collaborative automation can address these challenges.”

Agenda featuring talks by experts and over 30 exhibition booths

'We Are Cobots' boasts a multi-faceted agenda consisting of 50 live keynotes on topics such as trends and insights from experts, the vast possibilities of UR‘s UR+ ecosystem and how to get the best out of your cobot from Universal Robots Academy. The expo will also have tracks with live demonstrations of innovative automation applications such as packaging and palletising, sanding and polishing, machine tending, and screwdriving. All the talks will be available in English, German, French, Spanish and Italian.

Across more than 30 virtual exhibition booths, visitors can engage in 1-to-1-conversations with UR experts as well as UR+ partners. Furthermore, they can participate in live demos of UR cobots and applications.
