From the company’s website:

Due to the ongoing travel restrictions as well as the many individual phone and video calls during the last weeks we decided to organize a conference day around exoskeletons and our experience working with many clients on that topic globally in the last years.

Please join us on May 14th for discussions, keynotes and product presentations from Duderstadt, Hamburg, Washington D.C. and Sydney.

Exo Day will start with a German program in the morning (09:00 Uhr CET) and offers English content as soon as our colleagues on the U.S. East Coast start their day (15:00 Uhr CET / 9am EST).
