InterDrone will open its doors to the US drone industry today for a three day event at Rio Hotel, Las Vegas.
Over 160 drone manufacturers, sellers and solution providers are set to fill the expo floor for the show which will feature keynote speakers, classes and panels, a networking reception and a ‘women in drones’ luncheon.
A number of notable industry leaders are sponsors of the event, including DJI, Wingtra and Drone Deploy, all three of which are also among the exhibitor list.
The show kicks off with a classes and panels session, followed by a grand opening keynote speech from Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) acting administrator, Dan Elwell.
As part of his role, Elwell is responsible for the safety and efficiency of the largest aerospace system in the world, a system that operates more than 50,000 flights per day overseeing a $16.4 billion-dollar budget.
His talk will be followed by another keynote speech from CEO of PrecisionHawk, Michael Chasen, a provider of drone technology for enterprise.
After speeches have finished, the exhibit hall will open, classes and panels sessions will begin and, following the lunch break, a solutions showcase will take place.
