About & FAQs

Robo4hire is a UK-based company specialising in providing real robots as presenters, hosts or after-dinner speakers for corporate and other events.

Our robots were created to entertain people – and they do it very well.

Robo4hire exists to make your event unforgettable.

Our robots are show-stopping entertainers specifically designed to delight, amuse and amaze humans as Nene Udofot testifies

Their portfolio of talents makes them incredibly versatile, able to capture an audience as host, presenter or after-dinner speaker.

Our dedicated teams work with you to create the perfect routines for your event.  Our robots can be modified to complement your brand and match the theme or mood of your event: our robots are yours for the day.

There are no tech worries either, as we take care of everything.  Our expert technician delivers and collects the robot and operates the robot on-site for the duration of your event, ensuring there are no technical hiccups.

All you have to do is enjoy the robots as much as your guests.

  •  

    They are actual robots, not men dressed as robots.  Designed to entertain, they work well in events, from small less informal sessions, to large venue exhibitions.  We often find they steal the show, wherever they are.  What’s more, we bring the robot to you and take care of technical and logistical requirements, leaving you to enjoy the event.  And, of course, the robot!

  • There are three packages, standard, premier and premium (see Hire Packages for more information).

    All packages include:

    • Transportation of the robot to and from your venue
    • Set up, installation and dismantling of the robot
    • Operation of the robot throughout the event by our roboteer team
    • Access to our roboteers, to prepare pre-programmed routines for your event

The cost to hire would include the usual day hire rates, plus costs to transport and any contingency for delays in customs, accommodation for personnel travelling with the robot and any out of pocket expenses, such as taxis and subsistence.

  • Our standard package includes up to 10-minutes of pre-programmed material, to perform at an event. The other packages include a higher time allowance.

    We help you to generate scripts that we know will resonate with your audience, based on our experience of using robots at a wide-range of events. We recommend you allow two days for routines to be created, shared, revised and approved.

  • Other languages are available but carry a fee. Please enquire to see if the language you require is available and for costs.

  • Our premium package includes the option to use telepresence where a person speaks as the robot through a headset, responding to questions that can be heard from an external microphone. Call us for more information 01883 621000.

  • Our team have got this down to a fine art. Usually we can install the robot and uninstall it in around 40 minutes. Obviously, this is entirely dependent upon where the power source is, how far the air compressor is from the robot and so on.

  • No, our robots are all RoboThespianâ„¢ models created by Engineered Arts, based in Cornwall UK. Our robots are available exclusively for hire

  • Robo4hire is a standalone company.  It is also part of a larger enterprise, 360Globalnet, specialising in providing innovative and disruptive technologies to the insurance, healthcare, asset management, motor trade and housing sectors.

    Robo4hire was born when we bought Boris, our first life-sized humanoid robot to promote 360Globalnet at events. Boris proved so popular that we built a whole new business around him.
