Major drone conference InterDrone, which took place in Las Vegas last month, has added new industry voices to the advisory board.
New members include Sharon Rossmark, CEO and Founder of Women and Drones, the visionary networking and news website for women in the industry. Rossmark has also been instrumental in developing some of the industry’s major events for women, including the InterDrone Women in Drones lunch. This year, the lunch celebrated the achievements of ten “Women to Watch:” women nominated to the program by other members of the drone industry.
As a long time participant in InterDrone and an industry leader, Rossmark adds a valuable advocate for women in the industry. “I am thrilled to be a part of the diverse thought leaders selected to serve on the InterDrone advisory board,” says Rossmark.
Randall Warnas, Global sUAS Segment Leader at thermal imaging powerhouse FLIR, is another win for the board. Warnas has helped FLIR to develop one of the best libraries of training resources and materials in the industy. He’s an expert in drone applications that use thermal technology, and experienced in developing educational tools to help pilots level up.
“I have been to every Interdrone since its inception in 2015, and the show has developed as a mainstay for education and exposure for commercial drone operations. I’m honored to work with the others on the advisory board and the drone community to make 2019 the most magnetic, valuable, and inspiring Interdrone yet,” says Warnas.
