XPONENTIAL 2019 is the largest, most comprehensive trade show and conference in the unmanned systems industry, bringing 8,500 professionals together for three and a half days of information sharing, discussion and debate. More than 700 manufacturers will display cutting-edge technologies, and the educational program will feature 300 speakers participating in 200 sessions covering the latest industry developments.

This year, AUVSI will also introduce the Drone Tech User Track, which will feature a series of sessions dedicated to safely, efficiently and effectively advancing the deployment of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS).
