This October, the 4th Annual Commercial UAV Expo trade show will host a variety of unmanned aerial system (UAS) vendors showcasing airframes, components, software and services all focused on commercial applications.
The event, which was recently recognized by Trade Show Network News as one of the Top 25 Fastest Growing trade shows, will exceed 200 booths this year. It will be held at the Westgate Resort in Las Vegas from October 1-3. With the recent acquisition of Drone World Expo, the show is the definitive conference and expo for commercial drone applications.
“What’s happening now in the North American market for commercial UAS is very exciting. The passage of Part 107 has opened the doors for many operators to get off the sidelines and jumpstart their UAV programs. Conference content will be a combination of workshops focused on what’s happening now and current successes and challenges in top vertical market segments for UAS integration as well as a view into the future of what will be in five, 10 even 20 years,” said Lisa Murray, Group Director at Diversified Communications, organizer of the event, in a release. “Drone industry leaders have already cast their votes for Commercial UAV Expo by committing to this event. They know they can count on us to deliver the best quality prospects and key decision makers looking for solutions they need to increase efficiency, save money, mitigate risk and increase safety. To learn more, visit us this week at AUVSI’s XPonential in booth #1935.”
