The exhibition will be followed by the "Global Robot Business Forum", "Korea-China-Japan Robotics Workshop", and "Korea-China Robotics Forum" where robotics engineers from around the world will present robot industry forecasts to those visiting the exhibition.

The "International Robot Contest" to be held in Hall 1 of Exhibition Center I is a global event that has been participated in by various types of competitors including students (elementary, middle school, high school, and college) and adults. The theme for this year is "The Coexistence of Humans and Robots." Based on this theme and a set of contest rules, participants will make robots and compete with each other in the areas of robot performance and in carrying out the missions.

The topic of this year's International Robot Conference is "International Robotics Forum: Biomimetic Robots and Technologies," so discussions will focus on biomimetic robots that can be applied in national defense, disaster relief, construction, and many other areas.

According to Kim Hwanguen, Vice President of the Korea Association of Robot Industry who will supervise the event, the Robot World is the largest robot exhibition in Korea. "We will turn it into a leading global exhibition by adding a platform for smart factories and artificial intelligence to robotics, which will surely play a leading role in the Fourth Industrial Revolution," he added.
