Celebrating the show’s 50th anniversary, the Association for Uncrewed Vehicles Systems International (AUVSI) brings its premiere global event, XPONENTIAL, to Denver, May 8-11. The event is co-hosted by Messe Düsseldorf North America and this year’s theme is Building the Blueprint for Autonomy.
The world-class event invites industry changemakers and end users to experience new technology that is solving real world problems, from safety and defense, to energy and infrastructure, business, construction, health, and the environment. The largest of its kind, the convention features keynote speakers, panel presentations, educational programs, specialized workshops, networking opportunities, and an extensive exhibitor hall teaming with newly developed technology to preview, as well as co-located events.
“As we celebrate XPONENTIAL's 50th anniversary, we reflect on the incredible advancements in uncrewed technology that have occurred over the past five decades,” said Brian Wynne, President and CEO of AUVSI. “We have seen uncrewed systems evolve from experimental concepts to essential tools for many industries. As we look to the future, this industry will continue to drive innovation and unlock the full potential of these systems to improve our world.”
The first co-hosting by Messe Düsseldorf North America represents a win for AUVSI members and the whole uncrewed systems industry. “As one of the world’s largest exhibition organizers we will contribute the international reach of our numerous industrial trade shows to drive the commercialization of uncrewed systems and robotics,” said Wolfram N. Diener, President & CEO of Messe Düsseldorf. “XPONENTIAL will become an even bigger and better show for all participants by offering a growing range of topics and new target groups.”
XPONENTIAL attracts 7,500+ attendees each year, who attend 200+ educational sessions as part of the full conference. The Solutions and Innovation Theaters feature the top experts in their field sharing best practices, technical discoveries and announcing the AUVSI XCELLENCE Award winners. The Tech Pavilion hosts demos that get attendees face-to-face and hands-on with ground-breaking innovations from all domains and sectors. Regional pavilions explore domestic innovations through nine state and four international pavilions. Meanwhile, the XPO Hall provides premiere access to more than 500+ companies all showcasing the latest breakthroughs in drones, robotics, and other uncrewed systems.
