Xponential 2020
Event Details

As events and activities continue to evolve in response to COVID-19, it will likely come as no surprise to you that we are making one final shift this year. AUVSI XPONENTIAL 2020 will now take place entirely as a virtual event over the planned dates of October 5 – 8! While it was our collective hope that the fall would bring about a safe opportunity for our community to engage in-person in Dallas, the current rise in COVID-19 cases has made clear the need for a safe alternative.
Although we are disappointed that we won’t have the opportunity to greet you in a session room or in the XPO Hall, we are excited to fully engage with you through our immersive virtual event platform. This virtual experience enables direct and meaningful interactions with speakers, session content, exhibits, and formal and informal networking just as you’d expect in-person. As a bonus, you’ll also have access to recorded sessions, on-demand content, Community Q&A and networking for months after the event concludes.
As we finalize preparations for the event, we want to thank you — our AUVSI community — for your patience, understanding, and flexibility this year. It has been a challenging stretch but know that we are adapting this event with your interests in mind and with our standing commitment to providing an outstanding and valuable experience for all attendees.
AUVSI XPONENTIAL 2020 is the global stage for everything unmanned — from state-of-the-art propulsion technology, sensors, energy storage and UAS mitigation solutions to what’s coming over the horizon in AI, 5G, edge computing and more.
As the largest, most significant event for the unmanned systems industry, you’ll find your edge as you explore the latest technology innovations, develop new perspectives as you hear from industry luminaries, and cultivate creativity at special networking events where you will meet some of the most influential leaders in the unmanned and autonomous space.
Technologists, users, policy makers and strategists from more than 20 industries attend XPONENTIAL, the largest, most comprehensive trade show for unmanned and autonomous systems. Here, share data and best practices, learn from and educate others and extend your professional circle.
If you are new to AUVSI's digital events, check out the snapshots below to better understand how you'll engage with AUVSI XPONENTIAL 2020. Our virtual platform is easy to use and fully interactive. From the basics of creating your user profile and planning your schedule to connecting with other attendees and visiting the XPO Hall, we've taken care to ensure all the best features of XPONENTIAL are delivered in this new digital experience.
