Robotex media campaign was worth approximately 130,000 € in the last two years, which indicates the project capacity and the interest of media groups in co-operating with us. The marketing campaign has increased year by year. This is reflected in particular in the number of competitors and spectators that has multiplied in the course of the recent events. Robotex was covered in nearly 80 different media channels and sources in 2013. The former Minister of Education and Research of the Republic of Estonia, Tõnis Lukas, has been to Robotex twice and the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon delivered a speech at Robotex in 2013. In 2014, Ambassadors from Czech Republic, Austria and Japan visited Robotex.
