The NEW exhibition for automation and robotics in the UK

Automation UK is a new exhibition designed specifically for businesses operating in the automation and robotics markets. Supported by BARA (British Automation & Robot Association), Automation UK will take place at the CBS Arena in Coventry between 20-21st June 2023.

Co-located at Automation UK will be UKIVA’s MVC (Machine Vision Conference), an established industrial vision ConFex that regularly attracts more than 500 visitors and features a wealth of sector-specific exhibitors and expert presentations. Combined, the two events will provide an excellent opportunity for exhibitors to meet face-to-face and network with a targeted audience of relevant visitors – each with budget authority, looking for new technology and equipment in vision and robotics, within the end-to-end production line process.
