MHTA Members eligible for discount to Robotics Alley Sept 16-17
MHTA is proud to be a founding partner of the Robotics Alley Conference & Expo, and a supporting partner of this year’s event scheduled for September 16-17. As part of the partnership, MHTA is excited to offer members a 50% discount off of the admission rates.
This years event will be held at the newly renovated Minneapolis Marriott Northwest Hotel and Conference Center and will feature more than 40 educational sessions presented by top robotics experts, a Career Fair, tours of local businesses, an expanded STEM Showcase and more.
“In the four years since Robotics Alley started, this industry and this conference have been on a major growth trajectory,” said Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie, chair of this year’s Agricultural Track. “There’s so much happening in robotics right now, the event will have five or more sessions happening simultaneously just to scratch the surface. I’m pleased the conference found a venue that can handle that growth while still providing a comfortable space for the networking that is at the heart of an event like this. Minnesota and this region are doing some amazing things with robotics, and I look forward to celebrating that innovation this fall.”
The Minnesota High Tech Association co-founded Robotics Alley as part of its mission to ensure Minnesota is a top five science and technology state. Robotics Alley is designed to spur public-private partnerships in the business, research, and development of world-leading robotics and automation systems and features presentations by leading experts in a variety of robotics fields.
