Attracting talent at esport expo

This weekend, 10 robot and automation companies from Funen will join forces together with Odense Robotics to create a unique expo at one of the world’s biggest esport competitions.  

For three days, esport fans and the general public will be able to witness robotic technologies in action, talk to tech experts about careers and try out technologies for themselves at an expo area in connection with the ESL Pro League CS:GO Season 6 Finals in Odense.

Visitors will be able to try out an array of robots and automation machines, including programming Blue Ocean Robotic’s educational robots, controlling Leica’s digger and leading a MiR robot through a labyrinth. In addition, Schneider will showcase their Nordbo paletting robot and Robot Nordics will demonstrate their Fanuc robot.

Companies in the Odense Robotics StartUp Hub at Technological Institute will also be part of the show: Ztove will serve glögg using sensory technology, QuadSAT will demonstrate drone technology and Tendo will allow visitors to create robot mascots using 3D technology.

Companies join forces to stage robot expo
“Esport fans from around the world will be able to get a flavour for what Odense offers in terms of careers within robotics, automation and technology,” says Henrik Brændstrup, Business Developer, Odense Robotics, who has worked closely with companies and the Municipality of Odense to stage the event.

“Thanks to the huge support of robotic and automation companies in and around Odense taking part in this expo, visitors will be able to try out technology that they wouldn’t normally have access to. Companies see this as a great opportunity to brand robotic careers to a target group that’s normally very hard to reach. And we’re all excited to see the response.”

The expo takes place from Friday 8 to Sunday 10 December at Odense Congress Centre. The event will promoted under the banner The Road To Odense, an initiative from the Municipality of Odense aimed at attracting tech talent from abroad.
