Hire a Robot for Events

Ingenious, interactive robots with custom features powered by cutting-edge technology

Futuristic Robots specially programmed to attract attention at leading technology exhibitions, increase footfall at trade fairs and entertain guests at corporate functions.

Why Hire a Robot?

With advancing technology filtering into the events and entertainment industry, it was only a matter of time before Robots became the stars of the show! Despite their increasing popularity, audiences never fail to be impressed by our friendly metal friends. 

Robots are a surprisingly versatile entertainment option with a variety of custom-built features and programmable purposes. From hybrid humanoids, to photo-happy roaming robots to LED party superbots with smoke, lasers and cannons, there is a Robot to suit every occasion. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there always an actor inside of every robot suit?

Not always. Usually, human-size and bigger robots require one performer inside so they come into life. In some instances, smaller robots are remotely operated by experts and robotic professionals who can also program them so they can host your event, dance, sing, tell jokes and even have conversations with any passer-by.

What type of shows can robots perform?

This is completely dependent on the Robot! We can offer many different Robots for interactive walkabout sets or fully-fledged shows. For instance, we have DJ robots who get people into the groove; interactive roaming robots who can host your party; robots who perform explosive dance shows; stilt walking robots and even combat robots that can be built by participants as part of an ingenious team-building experience.

Can robot performers advertise my brand?

Yes, definitely! Robots are an ideal, innovative and futuristic advertising tool and some of the most in-demand acts in the world. Many technology brands nowadays book them because they are sure to make a big impact at any promotional event. Most of our robots have iPads and panels incorporated that can be customised with corporate colours or that can display any brand’s logos.

Can robots perform outdoors?

Yes, they can. Robots normally require big open spaces to carry out their performances, especially big ones. Indeed, some of our robot shows have been specially designed for open-air performances. Weather conditions need to be taken into account though, especially when dealing with real robots rather than robot suits.

How can robots interact with audiences at my event?

The majority of robots shows are interactive because they’re walkabout performances. This makes it ideal for events looking for entertainers who can communicate with their audience. In the case of robots, people can not only take pictures with them but also have a real conversation. 

Real robots usually have cameras, touch sensors and microphones installed so people controlling them from the distance can properly respond to any question, gesture or action.

How do performers transport their robotic suits?

In the majority of cases, the suits and different costumes need to be fragmented and shipped in advance. The transportation method will depend on the agreement reached with the performer beforehand. In some cases, transportation costs are included in the price.

Can real robots be programmed to speak any language?

Absolutely! Real robots can be programmed to speak different languages so they can interact with your guests regardless of their nationality. Contact our entertainment coordinators and ask them to advise you on the different options available.

Could a robot host my event?

Yes, absolutely! Interactive robots are the ideal meet and greet option for any type of occasion. They can offer a warm welcome to guests, guide them to your exhibition stand and some of them can even give presentations and lectures or serve drinks as a bartender!

Expert Advice on hiring Robots

Our Head of Artist Development Daniela gives her top tips
Venue Restrictions Are A Consideration

Many of our robots have particular surface requirements, meaning that they can’t move on loose surfaces, muddy terrain or perform in poor weather conditions. Carefully consider event space and facilities ahead of time to ensure that you can get the most from your chosen Robot! If you’re unsure, ask one of our Entertainment Experts to clarify any logistical requirements.

We Can Customise Robots

Absolutely! Hiring a Robot is a no-brainer for corporate clients with the option to pre-programme distinctive voices, various languages, key event messages and branding. Personalisation can also extend to the robot’s bodywork. Budget will be a determining factor in regards to how much or how little you can customise the robot to suit your needs.
