Business UAV Expo: What to Count on What To not Miss

 Commercial UAV Expo will take place at Caesars Forum, Las Vegas, NV, September 5-7, 2023.  It’s one of the biggest industry events of the year: more than 3,500 commercial drone professionals from more than 60 countries are scheduled to attend. Registration is still open.

“Commercial UAV Expo is at the forefront of commercial drone technology, bringing together industry professionals from around the world to discuss the latest developments, share the newest technology, and work cooperatively to create the airspace of the future,” said Lee Corkhill, Group Event Director at Diversified Communications, organizer of the event. “Year after year, the turnout has been tremendous, because attendees know they will find cutting edge technologies, ground-breaking applications and the potential to transform industries, from surveying and mapping, construction, public safety, infrastructure and transportation, energy and utilities, and more.”

The Conference Program is packed: and the leading players of the industry, including drone experts from Amazon, DJI, Duke Energy, Federal Aviation Administration, Elroy Air, Florida Power & Light, John Deere, Department of Homeland Security, Merlin Labs, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Percepto, Southern Company, US Department of Transportation, Walmart, Wing, Zipline and more, will present.

Don’t skip the keynote panels: this is your unique opportunity to hear officials from the FAA discuss what’s next, and listen to industry leaders talk about the trends and movement they see in the sector.  You also won’t want to miss the live outdoor Flying Demonstrations  – an opportunity to see multiple systems in real-world scenarios.  Take the opportunity to talk to professionals and ask your questions directly.

And, with over 200 industry-leading solutions providers on the exhibit floor, you get the opportunity to see hundreds of solutions and engage with technical leads and current users.  While you are there, don’t miss our friends and partners on the floor.  We’ll see you there!
