A record number of manufacturers, service companies and other industry supporters of drones are participating in the Consumer Technology Association’s (CTA) upcoming Unmanned Systems Marketplace at CES 2016.
On Jan. 6-9 in Las Vegas, a record 27 exhibitors – up from 16 companies in 2015 – will showcase their technologies. Exhibitors will include DJI, Yuneec, Hobbico Inc. and Squadrone System.
Owned and produced by the CTA – formerly the Consumer Electronics Association – CES 2016 is a gathering place for those in the business of consumer technology.
The Unmanned Systems Marketplace, presented by the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International, covers more than 25,000 net square feet of exhibit space – representing a 200% increase over the 2015 CES.
“Drones have taken off in the marketplace and now represent one of the fastest-growing tech categories – globally and on the CES show floor,” explains Gary Shapiro, president and CEO of CTA. “This is truly life-changing technology that will create new jobs, improve lives and transform the way we do business.”
In addition to exhibits on the show floor, CES 2016 will feature four conference sessions focused on the accomplishments, trends and challenges of UAV technology.
