The new online networking tool, Connect™, simplifies pre-show and onsite networking between exhibitors and attendees for XPONENTIAL 2016 - An AUVSI Experience.

a2z, Inc., the Maryland-based event management solution company, is pleased to announce that the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) is introducing the new online networking tool, Connect™, for its XPONENTIAL 2016 event to be held May 2-5, 2016 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, LA. Connect simplifies pre-show and onsite networking between exhibitors and attendees to make for a more productive event for all involved.

With Connect, attendees have the ability to build a personalized show planner, consisting of their favorite exhibitors, exhibitor meetings and educational sessions. Connect also provides exhibitors the opportunity to create an online eBooth to showcase their latest products and services to attendees before they travel to the show. In addition, each exhibitor is matched with registered attendees who indicate interest in the product categories associated with its company profile. Exhibitors can connect with attendees via direct emails or by requesting in-booth appointments. This correspondence is all compiled in the online tool.
In addition, AUVSI is utilizing the ChirpE Mobile App solution to offer on the go access to the Connect planning tools. When attendees download the mobile app, they will see many features designed to help them be more productive at XPONENTIAL 2016. All selections made online in Connect will be accessible from the mobile app, along with real-time alerts, local information and social media. The XPONENTIAL 2016 Mobile App is available for iOS and Android devices, as well as all internet-enabled smartphones.
Exhibitors are also encouraged to add the ChirpE eBooth Promotion Widget to their company websites so that they can promote their presence at XPONENTIAL 2016 to their customers. The eBooth Promotion Widget provides exhibitors with a unique opportunity to engage with potential buyers before the expo starts. By utilizing the eBooth Promotion Widget, exhibitors can increase their event ROI and collect valuable pre-show leads. Attendees can add exhibitors as a favorite to their show planner and register for the event with a single click via the plug-and-play widget.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
