It is the premier networking event for the robotics industry, and AMT has found this forum to be a valuable resource for new business opportunities. It's a time when suppliers, system integrators, and users come together in a place where old friend are reunited and new business connections are developed. In fact, featured this year is Connectioneering, an organized networking event that is designed to bring key executives together with the supplier and user communities."
