Awards update: Robotics and Automation News Awards 2021 to go ahead

Robotics and Automation News is organising its first-ever awards event, despite the challenges caused by the global pandemic.

We had originally wanted to hold a live event, either by renting space at one of the big trade shows or a separate conference centre.

However, this is highly unlikely to happen, so we are planning a virtual awards ceremony for sometime in late October or early November 2021.

If you haven’t already voted, please feel free to give your clicks to your favourite companies on this form. Deadline for all readers’ votes is 30th June 2021.

You will notice that the form contains about 15 categories. We tried to include as many companies as possible, but we will have to reduce the number of categories to 10.

So that will be 10 trophies available for the Readers’ Awards.

We will also have a track called the Judges’ Awards. This will also have 10 trophies, one for the winner of each of the same 10 categories.

If you would like to be a judge, or sponsor one of the awards, please let us know by emailing

We already have a main sponsor, which we will announce in the next few weeks.

We would like to this opportunity – and every other opportunity – to thank all our readers, subscribers and advertisers for helping us through the past five years, up to this point. We look forward to better things for everyone in the coming years.
