The community is counting on automatica to provide an attractive marketplace and a workable solution in these times of the pandemic. A new event concept has been developed in cooperation with all stakeholders for June 22 to 24, 2021: automatica sprint.
automatica has always been and will continue to be a community brand that emerged from the industry's desire for a leading international high-tech platform for automated production and robotics. And it has been the industry’s most important sounding board, innovation driver and source of knowledge since it was first held. An aspiration that is also reflected in the new compact event format concept of automatica sprint.
Flexibility, modularity and candidness are the main features of this new marketplace. The declared goal is to deepen the dialogue and to provide quick networking opportunities for all participants to exchange knowledge, solutions and experience. The focus is on robotics, assembly and handling technology, machine vision and digital solutions for the smart factory. A special highlight: the premiere of the integrated high-tech event munich_i.
Due to its design as a hybrid in-person and digital event, automatica sprint is in a position to facilitate advance planning and to guarantee its own feasibility. A responsible and well thought-out hygiene protocol focuses on the safety of all participants. In short: automatica sprint is the perfect sales platform for 2021 – and the perfect run-up to automatica 2022.
Optimized space utilization: The ‘breathing’ open structure offers more freedom of movement and quick orientation.
Back to the future: With regard to its floor space, automatica sprint picks up the hall constellation of the very first automatica in 2004. In addition, LASER World of PHOTONICS – the world's leading trade fair for photonics components, systems and applications – will be held simultaneously from June 21 to 24. There are attractive synergy effects for the exhibiting companies and visitors of both events. Halls B1 to B3 and C1 to C3 are reserved for LASER, while Halls A1 to A3 are reserved for automatica sprint.
