Oppenheimer Hosts Inaugural ‘Drone Day’ in New York


Investment banking company Oppenheimer & Co. Inc. hosted its inaugural “Drone Day” on Sept. 19 in New Windsor, N.Y.

Taking place at the Storm King Art Center in New Windsor, N.Y., the event featured Shan Phillips, CEO of Yuneec International Co.’s U.S. business, and Gilles Labossiere, chief financial officer of Parrot SA, as keynote speakers.

Panelists included Chris Thomas with MultiGP, Todd Wahl with FPVLive.tv and Tim Nilson with Lumenier, who discussed emerging drone racing leagues. Attendees also had an opportunity for one-on-one meetings with drone technology providers. Other topics covered included machine vision, cloud infrastructure of drones, integration of drones in enterprise decision-making and consumer applications for drones.

“Drone Day is the latest addition to a robust calendar of events, following our 19th Annual Technology Conference last month, designed to further educate our clients about new investment opportunities,” says Erica L. Moffett, managing director and associate director of research at Oppenheimer. “We enjoyed using the event to further elevate conversations surrounding drones and bring life to the technology for attendees.”

New York City-based Oppenheimer, a principal subsidiary of Oppenheimer Holdings Inc., and its affiliates provide a range of wealth management, securities brokerage and investment banking services.
