Be honest! How much do you miss in-person meetings that bring meaningful connections?
Well, if you feel the same as we do, the good news is that the most important event for automation experts is back. UiPath Forward IV 2021 is waiting to welcome its guests on 5-6th October at the Bellagio in Las Vegas. If you hadn’t heard the good new yet, here is what you should know and why you should sign up for this event.
Now, digital transformation is more relevant than ever, taking into account that the after-effects of the pandemic will be felt in the long run. Even before, automation was a sizeable opportunity for any business that wanted to become efficient and increase its ROI, but now it has became crucial for surviving and thriving in a context led by uncertainty.
Before diving into more details about UiPath Forward IV, let’s take a look at the events organized so far.
For example, the first UiPath Forward event took place in 2017 and welcomed over 600 attendees, had 11 sessions, and presented 12 customer and partner success stories. The event’s kickoff was with Daniel Dines, the CEO and founder of UiPath, who outlined the company’s main priorities, joined on stage by other experts.
UiPath Forward II hosted key leaders from big companies including Google, McKinsey, Microsoft, Deloitte, Celonis, and Roboyo, who shared success stories, challenges, and insights about how automation can drive success and accelerate the transformation of businesses around the world.
On October 15-16th 2019, UiPath Forward III gathered numerous RPA practitioners and experts and hosted more than 3,000 attendees and more than 30 sessions, so that a great community was created around the world of robotic process automation (RPA).
After a pandemic year that turned everything upside down, the great UiPath event is back. As a participant at UiPath Forward 2021, you’ll find nearly 3,000 attendees interested in implementing automation and taking their businesses to the next level, hundreds of partners – and 1214 Bellagio fountains. This RPA event is the biggest UiPath event of the year.
What does the UiPath Forward IV 2021 agenda look like?
Monday, October 4th is dedicated to UiPath Partners – Public Sector Advisory Board. After the meeting, the Public Sector Summit will take place, where public sector customers will share their stories about implementing robotic process automation (RPA).
After that, you will have access to Partner FORWARD, an exclusive pre-event gathering for hundreds of select UiPath partners. They will answer questions and share knowledge with their potential customers regarding all automation aspects.
On Tuesday, October 5th, the topic of the first official panel of the UiPath conference is The Innovation Engine of the Fully Automated Enterprise, and it will host two keynote speeches about the actual shifts in technology and how the UiPath Platform is enabling the next wave of progress – the fully automated enterprise.
Ted Kummert, EVP, Product & Engineering at UiPath will outline the innovation that powers the UiPath Platform and will share more about how to make automation across companies friction-free. Param Kahlon, Chief Product Officer at UiPath, will share the new features of the 2021.10 product release.
Then, you will have the option to choose the access between different panels, such as:
- How-to Sessions, where UiPath practitioners share automation achievements to solve a specific challenge;
- Innovation Sessions – where you will see the latest product release and innovation;
- Inspiration Sessions – where you will hear inspirational customer stories showcasing how automation is enabling digital transformation.
You will then have the opportunity to listen to Daniel Dines share his view about automation in 2021. In his opinion, the fully automated company is the next natural step of automation evolution.
On Wednesday October 6th, the second official day of the RPA conference, there will be general sessions with guest speakers who will share their ideas about how you can turn digital transformation from dream to reality in your company. After that, the How-to, Innovation, Inspiration, and General Sessions will take place.

What you should know about the safety measures at UiPath Forward IV 2021
The event will take place respecting all safety measures: the venues will have hand sanitizer options, ventilation, and continuous cleaning. Also, UiPath has created an “inside-out” experience, hosting Expertsville – a unique exhibit area of best practices and learning.
The event also limited the capacity for the Keynote Theater (instead of 5,000 capacity seats, only 2,300 seats will be available) and the seats at each table were reduced from 11 to 9. The panels of discussions will also be video streamlined so people can watch from their hotel rooms. Guests will find in their welcome bag: masks, hand sanitizer, and sunscreen.
