AUVSI celebrates 50 years in Orlando

Celebrating its 50th anniversary, the Association for Uncrewed Vehicles Systems International (AUVSI) brings its world class annual conference, XPONENTIAL, to Orlando, April 25-28.

The 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 by partners like the FAA.

Brian Wynne, president and CEO of AUVSI, says: “As we reflect on half a century of AUVSI supporting autonomous and uncrewed technology development we’ve seen this industry grow and evolve at an inspiring pace.

“As we look forward to the next 50 years it’s easy to imagine how seamlessly these systems and technologies will be integrated into our daily lives.

“To arrive at that future we need to stay focused on the intersection between people and technology. That’s why we chose the theme Where Autonomy Meets Society for XPONENTIAL 2022, to emphasize the innovation happening along that critical juncture to ensure these systems provide lasting public and economic benefits for society.”

XPONENTIAL attracts 8,000+ attendees each year, who attend 200+educational sessions. The Solutions Theater features the top experts in their field sharing best practices, technical discoveries and announces the AUVSI XCELLENCE Award winners.

The Startup XCELERATOR Pavilion serves as a hub for emerging technologies and early-stage companies providing a glimpse into the industry’s future.

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.
