Robot Technology Exhibition. DUBAIRTEX 2014 ‘BETTER BY ROBOT’. Dubai 28 – 30 SEPT 2014


With growing challenges worldwide, industries including Healthcare, Automation, Manufacturing, Security & Safety, see the importance of
further development in the field of Robot Technology (RT). A crucial stage in facilitating RT and gaining support is to bring experts from
around the world to one meeting point.Dubai’s strategic location connecting East and West has transformed the city into a global trade hub. With nearly 43% of the population under the age of 30, the city represents a culture which is future-oriented.

Its government aspires to invest in the latest innovations and shows a strong will in supporting new ideas, enabling continuous economic
growth, and fostering a transformation to a knowledge economy.

Gathering knowledge and technology from around the globe, the Robot Technology Exhibition – Dubai (RTEX – Dubai) will be the first event in
the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) exhibiting the latest innovations in Robotics & Automation. RTEX presents a distinguished source
for companies and investors to enter a unique market and experience a new level of science and technology.

By hosting this event, Dubai continues its successful path of being a first mover in the region as well as worldwide. RTEX hopes to add value to Dubai’s rising economy by involving various business sectors, creating employment opportunities, attracting international investors, and catapulting the city to a tech hub.

Anyone not only from the Industrial but also from the Medical, Transportation, Defense, Construction, Agriculture, Education and numerous other  fields will find solutions of their interest in RTEX. RTEX will cover all RT related sectors in one show and will be organized yearly.

The key message of RTEX is ‘Better by Robot’ and its theme will revolve around the idea that a future with Robot Technology will be a better and safer one for humanity.

What makes Dubai unique is the hospitality that Visitors from its neighboring countries experience when they come to the Emirate for
Business. The City has become the first choice in location for regional and international players to meet and discuss common interests and
opportunities. Exhibiting at RTEX allows companies to not only develop business locally but in an equal measure on a regional level.
