Lyon the 5th of April 2013 – INNOECHO, company specialized in the acceleration of emerging ecosystems, organizer of INNOROBO, announces the success of the evolution of INNOROBO into a unique business place, for its 3rd edition, held in Lyon at Cite Internationale, from the 19th to the 21st of March.

INNOECHO has again, this year, reinforced the position of INNOROBO as the unique International summit dedicated to service robotics in Europe by welcoming not only a very broad number of exhibitors – over 130 companies, labs, start-ups and schools have showcased their technologies and know-how during 3 days – but also by jointly organizing with the GDR Robotique and euRobotics aisbl, and in parallel of Innorobo, the venue of the European Robotics Forum, making of Lyon and the region Rhône-Alpes, partners of the event, a true pool of robotics excellences and a meeting and business place.

"Service robotics itself will represent a market of 100 billiards of Euros in 2020 from the source of the European commission and this market will be 30 times bigger in 10 years » declared Arnaud Montebourg during his presentation at Innorobo.

INNOROBO has indeed been honored by the presence of 2 ministers: Arnaud Montebourg, and Michèle Delaunay. Taking advantage of this unique opportunity of meeting with both the French Research and the companies, Mr Montebourg has announced his national robotics plan « France Robot Initiative » which aim, among others, is to help SME to get robotics equipment to gain in competitiveness and maintain production within the hexagon. Its dotation is of 100 millions Euros.

Service robotics market is growing and getting much more professional, as noted Catherine SIMON, president of INNOECHO: « The event has registered 15 000 entries over the 3 days, so a growth of 25% in comparison to 2012 edition, with visitors from 38 different nationalities. This important increase, despite the economical crisis situation, shows the awareness of the potential of service robotics, not only from public institutions, but also from many other sectors of activity such as transportation, household appliances manufacturers, or yet again from digital & telecommunication companies, as well as the opportunity of growth by the innovation. This year at INNOROBO, people were coming to do business, the professional curiosity phase is behind.”
