Organizers of the third annual Commercial UAV Expo Europe, an international trade fair and conference focused on commercial drone integration and operation for large enterprise end-users and asset owners, have confirmed the presenters and panelists participating in the extensive conference programme at this year’s event, taking place 8-10 April in Amsterdam.
The conference offers both general sessions and breakout sessions that delve deeply into UAS for specific vertical industries. Vertical industry sessions focus on construction; energy & utilities; precision agriculture & forestry; public safety; surveying & mapping; transportation and infrastructure. End-user roundtables are being offered on four of these topics and are by invitation only. These will provide participants a deep dive into best practices, opportunities and threats when it comes to UAS in their respective sectors.
“Not only is the content critical to these professionals, but the connections forged are priceless,” said Lisa Murray, Group Director at Diversified Communications, organizer of the event.
“The education strikes a balance between topics all UAS professionals need to know about, and sessions that delve deeply into UAS for specific vertical industries,” continued Ms. Murray.
Visitors can attend a Keynote providing a Global Industry Update and Market Outlook presented by Koen de Vos with the European Commission and Lorenzo Murzilli with Switzerland’s Federal Office of Aviation. Other general sessions include Plenaries on disruptive UAV technologies; smart cities & urban air mobility; safety, security and counter drone technology; and sessions on data management and machine learning/artificial intelligence.
Additional features of the programming are vendor-delivered Product Previews, the 2019 Drone Hero Europe contest and Exhibit Hall Theater Programming.
