This week the dates for the Drone World Expo were released to the public. What is being billed as “the premier event for commercial drone technologies and applications,” is currently scheduled for November 17-18, 2015 and will take place at the San Jose Convention Center.
According to a press release, the the expo and conference has been developed under advisement by leaders within the industry who span the spectrum with experts in regulatory affairs, aerial imagery, agriculture applications, design and development, and more.
“I was proud to be invited to serve on the Advisory Board for the upcoming Drone World Expo after spending time working in commercial robotics and learning the nuances of this exciting culture. The organizers vision of focusing specifically on commercial applications, end user requirements, customer matchmaking and real world business cases is the perfect mix for a successful event,” said Gretchen West, Vice President: Business Development and Regulatory Affairs, DroneDeploy.
“Hosting the event in Silicon Valley, which is the heart of technology development for commercial drones, is a great strategy and I look forward to helping shape the content of this flagship event with the rest of the all-star advisory board.”
Like many technologies, commercial drones evolved out of a military application and since begun to play an increasing role in commercial industries including cinematography, agriculture, construction, utilities, oil & gas, mining, and real estate.
The two-day Drone World Expo is expected to feature sessions and case studies addressing data collection and processing, sensors, piloting and safety management, FAA updates, certification standards, and commercial strategies. Additionally the conference will offer informative sessions on the impact drones are having on Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Big Data and the Internet of Things (IoT).
Those in attendance at the 2015 Drone World Expo will have the opportunity to see all of the latest products and solutions in an interactive and exciting show floor which will offer numerous examples of flying drones and the components, software/cloud services, training/certification, trade groups, universities/research centers, platforms and more needed for vertical industries to implement drone technology into their businesses.
