Drone Safe Register has started on its first national media campaign to secure more contracts for its members.
As part of the campaign, the group detailed how it also wants to promote the UAV industry as a whole to potential large-scale adopters.
In his first major move in his new role as DSR’s communications manager, Adrian Westwood will be spearheading the project.
Mark Boyt, chief exec at DSR, commented: ““The UK UAV industry is still very much in its infancy and the majority of business sectors have yet to recognise the financial and environmental benefits offered by UAVs. Drone Safe Register, your trade association, has decided to confront this head on.
“Adrian will produce and circulate news coverage of your business, your contracts, your successes and your services to the business sectors in your town and region. But he needs your help. He needs to know what you have been doing and what you are planning to do, so he can raise your profile and, thereby, secure more business for you.”
DSR describe how it hopes campaign can raise the profile of UAV operators in their local towns, counties and regions.
Boyt concluded: “I know you are all busy running your businesses but if you can find the time to supply Adrian with information, I am sure he will start to generate positive media coverage for you.”
