This year’s event will be hosted by Suzanne Lemieux, UAS Lead and Manager for the American Petroleum Institute (API).

“This is an incredible time for women to enter into this emerging field, to participate in these new developments, and to pave a pathway for more girls to enter into STEM careers. I look forward to moderating the luncheon panel to help build networking opportunities for more women and girls,” Lemieux said.

Katie Flash, Content Director, InterDrone added that:

“The event this year is also particularly exciting since we are thrilled to announce a partnership with Women and Drones.  Our event strives to highlight all the amazing things women are doing in this space, and this partnership allows us to take that to the next level.”

InterDrone is working together with ‘Women and Drones‘, the largest online platform for women in the drone industry to announce the 2018 Women to Watch in UAS list of honorees during the luncheon.

“Women to Watch in UAS recognizes exceptional women in the industry from around the world. We received hundreds of nominations this year and are in the midst of a rigorous process, reviewing each submission and validating the information. The finalists will be selected by our judges very soon and the honorees will be announced at InterDrone,” Sharon Rossmark, CEO and Founder of Women and Drones said.

InterDrone promises to be a big event for all commercial drone pilots (not just women) and industry players. The show will take place at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas, September 5 – 7. There will be more than 120 sessions, panel discussions, and keynotes conducted by renowned industry experts, covering numerous commercial drone applications. The Exhibit Hall will showcase the latest hardware, software, and drone accessories from leading manufacturers and innovators, including DJI Enterprise. Attendee registration is now open.
