Leaders in the global community of unmanned systems — including drones and robots — are coming together next week in Dallas to discuss the future of that industry.
The Arlington, Virginia-based Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International, will be hosting XPONENTIAL May 8-11 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in downtown Dallas. Events will include educational sessions, interactive discussions, networking receptions, and more. Experts will discuss technologies, trends, and regulatory moves that will drive revenue and innovation in the industry.
“We are entering a period of rapid, unprecedented growth in the unmanned systems industry.”
