Launch of Global Robotics Events and Media Powerhouse
Framingham, MA USA / Delft, The Netherlands 18 April 2017 EH Media announced today that its Robotics Division will merge with the European TUS Expo to form the new global entity Robo Business Media (RBM). The merger creates the largest events and media company for robotics in the world.
The Robotics Division of EH Media brings with it two leading digital publications, Robotics Business Review and Robotics Trends as well as the highly regarded RoboBusiness Conference and Expo. All of these brands will combine together with the unmanned systems focused activities of Dutch TUS Expo, owner of European trade shows and conferences including The Unmanned Systems (TUS) Expo and the recently acquired TUS Nordics event. The new international powerhouse integrated media and event organization for robotics is named Robo Business Media (RBM).
The newly formed company has offices in Delft (the Netherlands), Framingham (USA) and Odense (Denmark). RBM has four conference and expo events already planned in the next twelve months. They will take place in the USA, Europe and Asia. RBM will also accelerate the roll out of more industry focused events like the Chief Robotics Officer (CRO) Summits and one-day Masterclasses. The media brands, Robotics Business Review and Robotics Trends, will expand its international reach and will continue to provide readers year-round news and analysis with increased reporting from around the world.
“Robotics is growing rapidly and the market is becoming increasingly fragmented with multiple countries and regions at different stages of development. This merger establishes a dedicated, international robotics events and media company capable of delivering the needed information and networking opportunities to support the complex ecosystem and developments of new robotics strategies,” states Ken Moyes, President of EH Media. “We look forward to all that we will accomplish as one team”.
Niels Westendorp, co-founder of TUS Expo, states, “The fact that we merge the unmanned systems and robotics on the one side, and combine American and European events and media on the other side, gives Robo Business Media a unique and strong international position. The dynamics of a Pan-Atlantic team will boost the company’s acceleration and innovative power. More importantly, the merger enables us to serve this important emerging market worldwide”.
Robo Business Media has a wide spread partner network including a strategic partnership with RoboValley of the Delft University of Technology.
