Xponential event expects ‘elevated global presence in autonomous and robotics industry’

Xponential – or XPONENTIAL, as the organizers prefer it – the technology event for autonomy, is poised to further solidify its standing as the premier global gathering of industry leaders from April 22-25, 2024 in San Diego.

XPONENTIAL organizers, the Association for Uncrewed Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) and Messe Düsseldorf North America (MDNA), are forecasting an increase in attendance from outside the US compared to the 2023 show, which also saw a significant boost in international participation (a 65 percent increase over 2022).

This multi-year trend highlights the growing global appeal of XPONENTIAL as a must-attend event for industry professionals worldwide. Addressing the urgent need for cross-collaboration among leaders in different sectors and countries is essential for establishing the systems and standards for an autonomous future.

Tom Mitchell, president at Messe Düsseldorf North America says: “The surge in international interest for XPONENTIAL 2024 demonstrates how this event is a catalyst for advancing the field of autonomous and robotics technology on a world-wide scale.

“Our global footprint as an international B2B trade show organizer allows us to reach the key markets all over the world, facilitating business and networking opportunities beyond borders.”

Official US Commercial Service delegations from nine countries have already signed on for XPONENTIAL 2024, including Canada, Colombia, Denmark, Germany, India, Latvia, Netherlands, South Korea and Taiwan, eight of which are new to XPONENTIAL.

Through the International Trade Administration’s Trade Event Partnership Program (TEPP), trade specialists at US embassies and consulates in many different countries organize delegations to travel to trade shows like XPONENTIAL, which eases the way for international attendees by making registration assistance readily available.

Delegates also have access to exclusive XPONENTIAL benefits, including complimentary XPO Hall passes, discounts and exclusive networking events.

Further enhancing the global presence at the event, the Sunshine Solutions Center, representing solution providers, payloads, accessories and peripheral equipment from Asia Pacific, will return with a dedicated international pavilion in the XPO Hall.

These pavilions serve as focal points for showcasing the latest innovations, fostering networking opportunities and facilitating international collaboration and partnerships.

“By participating in TEPP and hosting country pavilions from around the globe, XPONENTIAL offers unmatched access to experts in uncrewed technologies from various nations. This provides both exhibitors and attendees with the opportunity to explore new business partnerships and tap into emerging markets,” said Mitchell.

XPONENTIAL 2024 promises to be a pivotal moment for the uncrewed systems and robotics industry, offering attendees an unparalleled event to explore cutting-edge technologies, engage with industry leaders and forge connections that will shape the future of this rapidly evolving sector.
