On the automatica trade fair’s main topics –

“Under the slogan “Work 4.0“, we try to give answers on what skills the employee of the future should bring. Service robotics fascinates many people and we can see that in the enthusiasm for our exhibition area. […] With the human-robot collaboration, the traditional robot manufacturers are also taking on the topic.”

On the relevance of IT for trade fair exhibitors of automatica 2018 –

“IT plays a role in most of the exhibitors, because sorted enclosures are not possible at all. If an exhibitor sees itself primarily as an IT service provider, then it will be optimally visible in our IT2I area. (…) We will bring the two worlds (of automation and IT) together thematically and spatially.”

– On key topics of IT2Industry as IT subject area:

“The digitization of industry is heavily driven by software. We recognized this early and set with IT2Industry an exhibition and topic focus. With the increasing relevance of this demand, IT2I will continue to grow and present new exhibitors at the show.”
