bot talks

Europe’s most exciting robotics event takes place in Bristol.

A rare chance to hear from the industry’s leading automation and robotics experts.

Hear about why small businesses should use robots, what are ‘robot ethics’ and when are automated cars going to take to the road (if ever)!

And, have a play with some robots, upfront and personal.

We’ve got it all, but hurry, there’s limited space and we’d love to see you there.

"I work for a small business. Robotics are not for us."

Think again...

What is Bot-Talks?

Bot-Talks is a premium conference and networking event based in Bristol. Think TedTalks, but on robotics.

Bot-Talks is aimed to help provide SMEs with a best-in-class overview of robotics and automation with presentations from leading industry experts, a world-leading panel discussion and a networking hall filled with exciting robot demonstrations; all here in the heart of Bristol City Centre.

Oh and yes, your drink will be poured by a robot.

Why are Robotics & Automation Important?

The technology boom has changed our lives forever. We’ve all experienced the transformation of our global society with the explosion of the internet and most recently, the universal adoption of the smartphone.

But this is just the beginning.
