Autonomy is radically transforming the future of the drone industry.
Every year, drones are tested for more commercial applications, from structural inspections to package delivery. Beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) capabilities are redefining where and how they can operate. Public safety missions, including search and rescue, wildfire response, and disaster recovery, are benefiting from new technology for navigation and situational awareness.
This May, an industry-leading trade show and conference provides the chance to see and understand all of these technologies and more.
XPONENTIAL is a four-day gathering of pilots, engineers, business leaders, end-users, and innovators working in aviation, uncrewed systems, and robotics.
From May 8-11, attendees will converge in Denver to learn from one another and collaborate on a shared plan for the future of autonomy.
The program is designed to address the most pressing issues facing this community:
What are the implications of advancements in autonomy for drone professionals?
How can pilots, technology leaders, and regulators collaborate to accelerate deployment while maintaining safety?
What are the biggest professional and business opportunities in the next 5 years?
Every year, XPONENTIAL draws 8,000+ experts from more than 20 complementary industries.
It is known around the world as the most important event for autonomous technology.
As one 2022 attendee put it, “If you want to be on the cutting edge of the UAV industry, attending XPONENTIAL is a must.”
