It’s no real surprise that the biggest drone manufacturer in the world is going to be a big presence at the biggest conference in the commercial drone industry. Emerald Expositions, the producers of InterDrone, have announced that DJI will have the largest exhibit space in the history of the show – and will act as major partners throughout the educational sessions. Their 40 x 40-foot booth will showcase many of the company’s partner solutions for specific verticals, along with its own technology.
DJI will present a keynote in the morning on Thursday, September 6, as well as teach several 60-minute sessions on topics such as its developer technologies, the current landscape of drones in public safety, and what’s new and hot in aerial photography.
“The DJI team is excited for InterDrone 2018, where we will showcase our latest technology, which include solutions developed in close collaboration with our partners – many of whom will be exhibiting at our booth,” said Jan Gasparic, Head of Enterprise Partnerships at DJI, the world’s leading civilian drone manufacturer. “The commercial drone ecosystem is growing at a rapid rate and it is thrilling to see the emergence of specialized solutions that cater to specific industrial needs,” he added.
Other notable keynote speakers include a Grand Keynote address by PrecisionHawk CEO Michael Chasen, and a Keynote from AirMap’s Greg McNeal. They will be joined at InterDrone by a high-level lineup of commercial drone CEOs and thought leaders who will frame the state of the industry for the more than 3,500 attendees expected at the conference.
“Exhibitors and sponsors include a cross section of the entire commercial drone industry, including DroneDeploy, FLIR, Epson, NASA, Pix4D, Geospatial Solutions, ESRI, Brother International, ComNav Technology, Bentley Systems, Harris, NovaTel, and DAE Inc. These great brands mix with great content to attract our robust attendee base of drone business owners, pilots and professionals in all sectors of the industry,” said Katie Flash, Content Director, InterDrone.
“Aiding in the growth of our audience is the support of more than 300 media and association partners on six continents. They are helping to drive awareness of InterDrone and building on its position as the premier commercial drone event in the world,” said Ted Bahr, InterDrone Chairman.
