After more than a year of virtual conferences (with more yet to come), we’re excited about the upcoming Commercial UAV Expo Americas gathering. Not only is it in person, but a large number of prominent exhibitors are already on board.

Gotta tell you: We’ve missed conferences. Organizers have done an admirable job with virtual gatherings during the pandemic, but there’s really nothing like networking in person. And, of course, there’s nothing that comes close to seeing all the exhibits on the convention floor. It’s a way better experience to see something with your own eyes and talk to a vendor/engineer rather than staring at images and documents online.

And so we’ve got our sights set on September 7-9 in Las Vegas for the Commercial UAV Expo Americas event, being held at The Mirage Las Vegas.

Exhibitors on board

It seems exhibitors are also keen to show their wares, especially since few have been able to directly display like this since the pandemic began. Already, more than 70 exhibitors have signed on. Lee Corkhill, Group Director at Diversified Communications – organizer of the event – says this many confirmed exhibitors, this early, bodes well for the gathering:

With more than half the exhibit floor already sold and over 250+ media and association partners from 6 continents signed on, Commercial UAV Expo Americas is firmly established as the leading event serving professionals integrating and operating commercial sUAS. After a year unlike any other, the industry is excited to reconvene in person to connect, learn, and drive the industry forward.
