BZ Media LLC has announced the launch of InterDrone, an international drone conference and exposition to be held in Las Vegas on Oct. 13-15 of next year.
Conference host BZ Media, a high-tech media company based in Melville, N.Y., expects more than 2,000 unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) builders, flyers and buyers to attend the three-day event.
“We have been tracking this market closely for two years and are convinced that this growing industry needs an event 100% focused on the commercial drone market and that the right place for that event to thrive and grow is Las Vegas,” comments Ted Bahr, president and CEO of BZ Media. “Our goal is to build the largest dedicated commercial drone event in North America.”
The exposition will allow manufacturers of UAVs to source products from original equipment manufacturer exhibitors, as well as meet and sell to professional commercial UAV buyers in the agriculture, journalism, film, search and rescue, real estate, and other industries. It will also include a drone demonstration area, the Yes Fly Zone, in the exhibit hall.
Registration for the event – strictly for trade and commercial drone builders, buyers and flyers, BZ Media says – will begin Jan. 1, 2015. The call for speakers will also open in January.
