“We are working with key partners, exhibitors and media to develop strategically timed events throughout the week surrounding our flagship event to ensure that attendees get the most out of their time in Silicon Valley,” says Joelle M. Coretti, vice president and event director of Drone World Expo.
“The Commercial Drone Alliance always likes to hold events around DWE since so many stakeholders will already be in town for the event,” notes Gretchen West, senior advisor at Hogan Lovells and co-executive director of the Commercial Drone Alliance. “It’s a great and convenient way to meet face to face with our members and connect with so many new end-users, as well. We’re looking forward to seeing everyone during Commercial Drone Week.”
