ORLANDO, FL - The annual Robots Industry Forum, sponsored by the Robotic Industries Association (RIA), will convene November 5 to 7 in Orlando to discuss leading issues and their impact on the robotics industry. The event includes three days of industry networking, technical presentations, forum discussion and trade exhibits. Mike Jacobs, President and CEO of Applied Manufacturing Technologies (AMT), and RIA board of directors member will serve as host and conference moderator.

Jacobs notes, "The Robotics Industry Forum has been on my calendar every year for 16 years. 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."

Mike Jacobs founded AMT in 1989. His professional & community affiliations are with the World President's Organization, Robotic Industries Association, Society of Manufacturing Engineers, and the Detroit Economics Club.
