What is XPONENTIAL 2020?
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 is coming over the horizon in AI, 5G, edge computing and more.

AUVSI’s XPONENTIAL 2020 will take place Monday, October 5 – Thursday, October 8.
Which Time Zone is used for session times?
All times listed on the agenda are in the Eastern Time Zone.
How is the event different from a webinar?
While a webinar-style presentation may be part of a virtual event, a virtual event provides attendees with a variety of content options and opportunities for direct interaction with other participants.
A webinar is a topic-specific seminar or other presentation, usually between 30 – 90 minutes, that takes place on the Internet, allowing participants in different locations to see and hear the presenter(s), ask questions, and sometimes answer polls.
A virtual event features an agenda of topic-specific sessions that take place either sequentially or concurrently over the course of a day or days, as well as virtual product exhibits and one-to-one chatrooms for scheduled and organic networking with other attendees. Participants in different locations can see and be seen, hear and be heard, and engage directly with other attendees, speakers, and exhibitors based on their interests. All sessions are professionally produced to optimize content for attendees and Individual sessions throughout the agenda may be held in the style of a webinar, an interactive videoconference, or small group discussions.
