The 2020 Commercial UAV Expo Americas is set to go ahead in an online-only format next week after its live event was cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic.
The event will run 15-17 September, with organisers predicting thousands of industry professionals and end users will take part.
The breadth of sectors represented by attendees – like construction, drone delivery, energy and utilities, forestry and agriculture, infrastructure and transportation, mining and aggregates, public safety and emergency services, security, surveying and mapping, and more – shows how far-reaching the industry is today.
Commercial UAV Expo Americas Virtual will kick off on Tuesday 15 September with virtual ‘outdoor’ flying demonstrations open to all registrants.
Leading UAS vendors will demonstrate their products in action, providing insight into their capabilities.
Vendors participating in the demos include Iris Automation, Doosan, Sundance Media Group, Sabrewing Aircraft Company, Inc., and Autel Robotics.
Following the demos are ‘Emerging Technology Showcases’ in which UAS solution providers will present their newest technology.
Wednesday will see the conference programme kick off at 9am PT, with a keynote presentation from FAA administrator Steve Dickson, the first of three keynote speakers.
There will also be virtual exhibit halls open from 9:00-17:00 PT on both Wednesday and Thursday.
Those interested in attending the online event can still register online now.
