Organizers announce Exhibitors to Date and New Advisory Board Members for Commercial UAV Expo 2016
The organizers of Commercial UAV Expo 2016 announced that its successful launch in 2015 has drawn strong support for the 2016 event, which is still more than seven months away.
“We’re thrilled by the support the industry has shown Commercial UAV Expo 2016,” said Lisa Murray, Director. “The very specific commercial nature of the event, which focuses on key industrial sectors, has been extremely well-received and truly distinguishes Commercial UAV Expo from other UAV events. Participants interviewed at the 2015 event lauded the commercial focus and the distinction.”
“Exhibit space is going fast, with 30% of the exhibit floor already under contract to dozens of market leaders,” said Ms. Murray. “They know Commercial UAV Expo is the best place to exhibit in order to put their products and services in front of asset owners seeking the best commercial drone education and widest range of cutting-edge solutions. Many participants were familiar with us from our other leading geospatial technology products. We tapped our extensive audience of more than 50,000 highly qualified geospatial professionals to deliver existing customers who trust and follow us, while our million-plus impression multi-media marketing campaign brought in new customers seeking information and products to integrate or expand their UAS capabilities.” At the 2015 event, more than 1,500 professionals from 49 states and 37 countries attended; 94% found new products or services at Commercial UAV Expo, and nine out of ten are involved in purchasing decisions.
In addition to companies, thought-leaders in the commercial UAV arena are supporting Commercial UAV Expo as Advisory Board members. “We’re very happy to welcome some new faces to the Advisory Board, who, along with returning experts, will ensure the conference program delivers the information large enterprise users need to integrate or expand their UAS program,” said Ms. Murray. The new members are:
- Dyan Gibbens, CEO & Founder, Trumbull Unmanned
- Lia Reich, Senior Director of Marketing & Communications, PrecisionHawk
- Gene Robinson, President, RPFlightSystems
- Dave Truch, Technology Director, Digital Innovation Organization, BP
- Scott Widmann, Project Manager, DPR Construction
Commercial UAV Expo will take place October 31 - November 2, 2016 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Registration will open in April.
