No question about it: robotics are revolutionizing our world – from space exploration and surgery to manufacturing, national security and home assistance for the elderly. Such innovations stand not only to greatly enhance our lives but also spur a growing interest in robotics among young students.
Which is why robot lovers will not want to miss the burgeoning number of exhibits in robotics that the Festival Expo is assembling for next April at the Washington, D.C. Convention Center! To date, more than 26 robotics exhibitors have signed up, joining a bevy of other exhibitors in other STEM categories to wow and inspire visitors.
This is shaping up to be our most active Festival Expo ever – so we strongly urge potential exhibitors in all STEM categories to act NOW to reserve your exhibit booth before space is completely sold out! To date, we have grown more than 30 percent larger than the last Festival, and we are on pace to take over the entire D.C. Convention Center with Expo and partnering activities April 26-27!
If you are a STEM institution, organization or K-12 school and have never participated in the Expo as an exhibitor, don't miss this unique opportunity to showcase your extraordinary work and programs in STEM through the high-profile venue of the Expo -- where your hands-on, interactive exhibit activities will be featured at an event to be attended by more than 250,000 visitors from around the world!
You'll also not want to miss the following high-profile event especially for Expo exhibitors:
VIP Preview hosted by Chevron --This special event, set for April 25, puts exhibitors in the spotlight during Expo Week by honoring them and their exhibits at an affair attended by prominent supporters of the Festival and industry leaders from the STEM Solutions Conference, a national confab sponsored by the Festival with U.S. News & World Report that will be taking place simultaneously that week at the Convention Center. Stay tuned for details!
