InterDrone, The International Drone Conference & Exposition, has been acquired by Emerald Expositions LLC, a North American producer of trade shows, from BZ Media LLC.
The 2017 event, taking place in Las Vegas on Sept. 6-8, will be managed and produced by BZ Media on behalf of Emerald.
According to BZ Media, Emerald Expositions is the largest operator of business-to-business trade shows in the U.S.; their oldest shows date back more than 110 years.
InterDrone 2016 drew 3,518 attendees and featured 155 exhibitors and sponsors, says BZ Media.
“We decided that to take the event to the next level required a company of scale and expertise like Emerald Expositions,” comments Ted Bahr, president of BZ Media. “We look forward to supporting Emerald through the 2017 and 2018 shows and working together to accelerate the show’s growth under their ownership over the coming years.”
