Messe Düsseldorf and the Association for Uncrewed Vehicles International (AUVSI) present the leading platform for uncrewed systems and robotics – already in the U.S. right now and soon also in Düsseldorf: At the leading trade show XPONENTIAL in Denver, Colorado, which is jointly organized for the first time, Düsseldorf’s Mayor Dr. Stephan Keller announced the date of the new XPONENTIAL Europe. From February 18 to 20, 2025, Düsseldorf will become the capital of uncrewed and autonomous mobility– a highly relevant topic for the entire economy. The event will create synergies with Düsseldorf’s world-leading trade shows, whose industries represent attractive target groups for XPONENTIAL. At the same time, Messe Düsseldorf is tapping into a key emerging topic for its industries and the mobility hubs of Düsseldorf and the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW).
Denver, May 10, 2023. The trade show destination of Düsseldorf is growing with a new future-focused event: XPONENTIAL Europe for uncrewed systems and robotics will be held for the first time in the NRW state capital from February 18 to 20, 2025. The innovation drivers of the industry will be at the trade show in Hall 1 – the newest, most up-to-date venue at the Düsseldorf Exhibition Center – and at the concurrently held conference at the adjacent Convention Center Düsseldorf (CCD) to present the diverse range of possible applications for uncrewed and autonomous vehicles, robots and related technologies.
A first glimpse can be experienced right now at XPONENTIAL in Denver, Colorado. The 50th anniversary is jointly hosted for the first time by Messe Düsseldorf North America (MDNA) and the world’s largest association representing this industry, the Association for Uncrewed Vehicles International (AUVSI). At the leading international trade show and conference for uncrewed systems and robotics, Dr. Stephan Keller, Mayor of the state capital Düsseldorf and chairman of the Supervisory Board of Messe Düsseldorf, announced the Düsseldorf event: “With XPONENTIAL Europe, Düsseldorf will become the center of autonomous and uncrewed mobility in Europe – a topic that renowned Düsseldorf companies and startups have embraced and are propelling forward with urban-transport research projects in Düsseldorf.” These include KoMoD (Cooperative Mobility in the Digital Test Field Düsseldorf) and KoMoDnext, which tested communication between autonomous vehicles and traffic infrastructure. Numerous other projects are underway in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia tackling autonomous mobility on the road, rail and water. Adds Dr. Keller, “Düsseldorf stands for new mobility, gaining an edge thanks to the innovation leaders based here, our location in the heart of Europe, short distances and top-level infrastructure.”
