Europe’s Best Robotics Event: R-24

March 13-15, 2024, the European robotics industry gather at the Robotics, Automation, and Drones exhibition, R-24. The predecessor, called R-22, was a huge success, and the fair already is the biggest robotics exhibition in the Nordics. Therefore, the ambition for next year's event is clear: R-24 wants to be Europe's best robotics event showcasing the cutting edge of robotics, automation and drones.

Within the robotics community there are already great expectations leading two of Denmark's robotics pioneers to step forward and support the event. Therefore, R-24 welcomes Esben Østergaard, Co-Founder of Universal Robots and CEO at REInvest Robotics, and Thomas Visti, former CEO at Mobile Industrial Robots and now Investor and Chairman of Visti Unlimited, as the official R-24 Ambassadors.

An International Event with Great Potential

Both gentlemen are well-known within the robotics community due to the major roles they have played since disrupting the market with Universal Robots (UR) and Mobile Industrial Robots (MiR).

Their ambassadorship therefore is a stamp of approval within the entire industry, and according to them the Danish event shows a lot of promise to be a big player in the game.

My hope for R-24 is that over time we can build up a robotics fair here in Odense that is world class, and I think we have the potential for it. There is so much robotics technology, so much knowledge, and so much interest in robotics, says Esben Østergaard.

Thomas Visti agrees and elaborates: I believe that R-24 is the biggest, international exhibition in the Nordic countries only focusing on robot technology, and in general there are more than 420 companies today either working with robots, automation, or drones here in Denmark, so it really is a robot country and of course worth a visit.

Odense is a Robot City

Being the ambassador of the robotics exhibition in Odense is a familiar role for Esben Østergaard, since he also was the ambassador for the R-24's predecessor, R-22, and according to Esben, Odense is the place to be.

I'm one of the R-24 ambassadors, because I really believe we need this kind of robotics fair here, and I am willing to support that with my name behind it. Since the success of Universal Robots and MiR, there has been like a flurry of robot companies and robot startups, and there is so much activity, so for me Odense is a very obvious location for a robotics fair, says Esben Østergaard.

Thomas Visti fully agrees. For him it is of course important to support the entire robotics ecosystem in Odense, but just as important is the personal interest and investment.

I am ambassador of R-24 because robots in general means a lot to me. I love robots, I live in Odense, and I've been a big part of the whole community here also, so of course, R-24 as a robot exhibition means a lot to me.

Practical Information

You will find R-24 in the heart of Denmark: on Funen. The location of the fair, Odense Congress Center, is located in a lovely green setting, still close to the freeway and the city centre. Find Odense Congress Center here:
