April 10, 2019 Automate, a showcase devoted to automation industry trends technology and business innovation, is moving to Detroit.

The move for the next event, which will take place May 17-20, 2021 at Cobo Center, was announced at the Automate 2019 “Moving to Motown” networking party in Chicago. 

Named one of Lonely Planet’s top cities to visit in 2018, Detroit is transforming. Over the last few years, studies from the Brookings Institution have rated Detroit No. 4 on a list of the country’s hubs for advanced technology employment, with nearly 15 percent of the workforce in the Detroit-Warren-Dearborn area working in areas such as research and development and engineering. Though known as a traditional automotive hub, the region is growing in other industries such as aerospace, logistics and advanced mobility.
