InterDrone, the International Drone Conference & Exposition, held earlier this month in Las Vegas, drew 3,518 attendees from 54 different countries on 6 continents, according to show organizer BZ Media LLC.
The event featured 155 exhibitors and sponsors in more than 230 booths. Michael Huerta, administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration, gave the grand opening keynote on the first day. The technical conference featured 121 classes and panels that were led by 183 speakers. In addition, the InterDrone Film Festival received more than 300 submissions from 21 countries, and winners in six categories were announced at a reception.
“The second year of InterDrone leapt over every high bar that the first show had set,” says Ted Bahr, chairman of InterDrone. “Its success reflects the exciting growth in the commercial drone market and the strong desire of businesses to take part in it. Attendance grew 26 percent, and we had 58 percent more exhibitors and sponsors than last year. More than 260 media and association partners have helped build InterDrone into the largest dedicated commercial UAV event in the world.”
InterDrone 2017 will be held at the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on Sept. 18-20, 2017.
