After two and a half years of only meeting online, IFR members had the chance to meet at two trade fairs in a row within three weeks: Automate in Detroit (Automate 2022 Exceeds Expectations with Largest Attendance and Exhibitor Count Ever | RoboticsTomorrow) and automatica in Munich (automatica showcased as a driving force for the industry (automatica-munich.com)). ISR Europe 2023, held in parallel to automatica, gathered 150 on-site participants.
All groups and bodies of IFR also met during both shows: Executive Board and Marcom Committee in Detroit, Research Committee, Robot Suppliers Committee, General Assembly and Service Robot Group in Munich. All meetings were held in a hybrid format to enable all members to join either ways - and both options were well attended and worked sufficiently well.
The General Assembly provided reports from all committees and through the presentations of the associations also a good overview on upcoming robotics events.
