The largest event in the US focusing on drones and unmanned systems, Xponential, took place in Denver during the week of May 8th. The conference was hosted by The Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) in cooperation with Messe Dusseldorf North America. Five Czech companies attended the conference.
"Xponential provides Czech companies with a unique opportunity to showcase their innovations, establish business contacts and expand their activities on a global scale. The presence of Czech companies at this event contributes to strengthening the position of the Czech Republic as a centre of development and production in the field of drones and unmanned systems," says Anna Hight, the foreign representative of the CzechInvest agency in San Francisco.
Dronetag, Liaz, Upvision, and Workswell were featured on a national booth of the Czech Republic and in a joint presentation called "Drone Innovations from the Heart of Europe," while Mejzlík Propellers had a separate booth at the event. These Czech companies presented their innovative drone solutions and attracted the attention of international experts and potential clients. The official Czech presence at the Xponential 2023 was financially supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic and the Ministry of Defence and organized by the Consulate General of the Czech Republic in Los Angeles as part of the Projects for Support of Economic Diplomacy tool (PROPED). As a co-organizer of the event, CzechInvest played a crucial role in actively supporting Czech companies to expand their presence in the international market.
