The World Robot Conference 2022 (WRC 2022) will be held in Beijing Etrong International Exhibition & Convention Center in Yizhuang from Aug. 18 to 21, according to a press briefing held on Aug. 8.

The WRC 2022 will be held both offline and online. More than 300 scientists, as well as representatives from international organizations and companies from China and abroad, will take part, said Chen Ying, vice-chairman of the Chinese Institute of Electronics.

There will be three sections, the World Forum on Robots, the World Robot Exhibition, and the World Robot Contest. More than 500 products from over 130 companies will be displayed, ranging from firefighting robots to surgery robots. Meanwhile, over 30 new products will be released during the conference.

Notably, a new section on humanoid robots will debut, and hundreds of robot dogs will dance in front of the audience during the event.

This year's exhibition will cover an area of 40,000 square meters, featuring several significant sections on innovative technologies in robotics, industrial robots, service robots, and specialized robots.

This year's conference will feature the 2022 World Robot Contest Championship and release a report on the development of China's robotics industry.

Wang Hong, deputy director-general of the first equipment industry department at the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, said that robotics plays a crucial role in driving industrial digitalization and promoting the development of the digital economy.

The robot conference has, over the years, effectively promoted the innovative development of China's robotics industry, making positive contributions to the construction of an open and inclusive global robotics system.

Beijing is home to over 400 robotics firms. The city is ramping up efforts to build itself into a global sci-tech innovation hub. Therefore, holding the WRC 2022 will help promote the high-quality development of its robotics industry and create a high-level economic system.
