The 2024 Robotics Applications Conference is seeking participants who can share how deploying and integrating robots address real-world challenges faced by supply chain and manufacturing end users.

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. – Peerless Media is seeking speakers and session abstracts for the 2024 Robotics Applications Conference, presented by Robotics 24/7. The third-annual virtual event will be held on July 31 and represents an opportunity for end users to share perspectives on how to overcome operational challenges by evaluating, deploying and managing robots and automation across a variety of industrial mediums.

“I am very excited to take part in my first Robotics Application Conference and speak with end users and integrators,” said Tim Culverhouse, editorial director of Robotics 24/7. “As RAC continues to grow, I look forward to sharing more robotics success stories from our audience.”
