Commercial UAV Expo Conference Programme Announced - 29/06/2015

The organisers of Commercial UAV Expo have announced the 2015 conference programme. It will delve into key issues faced by large-enterprise organisations when implementing unmanned aerial systems (UASs), including system selection and integration; developing enterprise workflows, guidelines and policies; data management and integration; and legal, safety and regulatory considerations for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Commercial UAV Expo will take place from 5-7 October 2015 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, USA.

Lisa Murray, director of Commercial UAV Expo, said the conference programme will give end users the critical information they need to make informed decisions about the technology that’s revolutionising countless industries.


Presenters include experts from AECOM, Balfour Beatty, Barrick Goldstrike, Bechtel, CNN, DPR Construction, John Deere, Pacific Gas & Electric, Shell and the Small UAV Coalition. The programme is comprised of keynotes as well as plenary and breakout sessions. More information about keynotes will be announced soon.

The Plenary Sessions and Panels cover topics of interest to all end users integrating UASs into their operations, regardless of industry.

Breakout Sessions focus on UAV use in specific vertical market segments, including surveying & mapping, mining, precision agriculture and civil engineering & infrastructure.


In addition to the conference programme, Commercial UAV Expo features an exhibition of 100 booths of cutting-edge solutions from the world’s top UAS suppliers, including Airware, Autodesk, Kespry, PrecisionHawk and SenseFly. View the current exhibitor list here.

The exhibition provides an unparalleled opportunity for attendees to qualify and compare products and services from the world’s top UAS vendors, drone manufacturers, component suppliers, software developers and service companies at one time, said Ms Murray. It is critical for buyers to know which options are available and to talk with technical leads and peers about their needs. Exhibitors will share product introductions and innovations in 20-minute “Product Previews” taking place on Monday afternoon, 5 October.
