XPONENTIAL, the leading U.S. trade show for uncrewed vehicles and robotic technology, will open its doors at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver from May 8 to 11, 2023, celebrating its 50th anniversary. On board as co-organiser are Messe Düsseldorf North America (MDNA) and the Association for Uncrewed Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI), which founded XPONENTIAL and hosts it annually at rotating locations across the U.S. The joint event is part of a new, comprehensive partnership between Messe Düsseldorf North America and AUVSI, with MDNA acquiring a 60 percent stake in the XPONENTIAL trademark rights in 2022.

„"XPONENTIAL is a major milestone on our growth path."“
Tom Mitchell, president, Messe Düsseldorf North America
"With this event acquisition – the largest in the history of Messe Düsseldorf – we're seizing a key emerging topic with excellent growth potential," says Wolfram N. Diener, President and CEO of Messe Düsseldorf. For MDNA, the first joint XPONENTIAL is a special event also because it represents the starting point for further growth on the American continent. To date, MDNA organises one trade show on its own, VALVE WORLD AMERICAS in Houston, Texas, and is involved in the plastics trade show COLOMBIAPLAST and the medical-technology trade show MEDITECH in Colombia. Moreover, the company organises "USA Pavilions" at trade shows in Düsseldorf and is the international link for U.S. companies, assisting with everything necessary to attend or exhibit at trade shows organised by Messe Düsseldorf worldwide.
