USA: Commercial UAV Expo 2017
Oct 24 – Oct 26 all-day

Commercial UAV Expo is for a very specific category of UAS users: those using drones for highly technical work in seven vertical industries.

Every day, I speak to professionals integrating or operating UAS for large industrial assets and this is what I’ve found: For them, it’s all about the data, from precise data acquisition, to processing, to deliverables that inform business decisions.

If this rings true for you, there is only one commercial UAS event that will address your questions at the level you need and that’s Commercial UAV Expo.

USA: High Accuracy Mapping with DJI Phantom & Inspire Drones @ The Westgate Resort

Following this colloquium, participants will have a complete understanding of the capabilities of Phantom/Inspire-class drones and the techniques that can be used with these devices to do serious mapping projects.A registration fee of $125 will be required to attend. Lunch will be provided.
