NORTHBORO, MA, AND FRAMINGHAM, MA, OCTOBER 17, 2004 - Robotics Trends and IDG World Expo today announced that RoboNexus comes to Santa Clara the week of October 17th, making Northern California and Silicon Valley the international center of the robotics world. The RoboNexus Conference and Exposition, the nation’s largest event for intelligent, mobile robotics technologies, will be held at the Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, CA on October 21-23, 2004. The conference website is

According to Dan Kara, conference chairman, President and Co-Founder of Robotics Trends, “RoboNexus was planned as an international event right from the start, and judging by the strong international flavor of participating exhibitors and media outlets, as well as the attendees, that was the correct approach. Of the more than fifty companies featured at RoboNexus, a large component will be from outside the US and will include exhibitors from Japan, France, Canada, Switzerland and other countries, many of which will be demonstrating robots and robotic technology that have not been seen outside their respective countries. The media and attendees participating in the event will be equally worldly, with representatives from Asia, Europe, and North and South America.”

According to Eliot Weinman, CEO and Co-Founder of Robotics Trends, “Robots and robotic technologies have an intellectual and emotional appeal that transcends any other type of engineered product, and this appeal has equal applicability across all forms of media - print press, Web press, film, and radio. The large amount of media sources converging on RoboNexus gives evidence that media outlets throughout the world understand the attraction and fascination of robotics technology to people of all ages, and are serving their customers by providing coverage of North America’s largest robotics event.”

RoboNexus sponsors include: founding sponsor iRobot, premiere sponsor Wany Robotics, platinum sponsor Evolution Robotics and association sponsor Robotics Foundry. A complete list of all corporate, media and association sponsors can be found at
