Last year, DJI invited me to come to their DJI Airworks 2018 conference in Dallas Texas. For three days straight, I was submerged in the world of commercial drone operators, software providers and large corporations using drone technology in their day-to-day businesses. I learned a ton in a very short time, made a lot of connections within the drone industry and walked away with a much better understanding of how drone technology is already impacting different industries and businesses around the world. DJI had put together a great event that I can recommend to anybody with an interest in the commercial application of drones. This year, DJI will host, what will be already the fourth DJI Airworks 2019 conference from September 24th through September 26th in Los Angeles, CA. Tickets are on sale now for $599.

Late October 2018, DJI organized Airworks 2018 in Dallas, Texas. The conference was aimed at commercial and enterprise drone applications. During the event, DJI launched the Mavic 2 Enterprise. The conference was opened with a two-and-a-half hour lasting DJI Keynote, but probably equally interesting to most attendees were all the break-out sessions and workshops that were organized by DJI and a host of other companies active in the commercial and enterprise drone market. We had already uploaded the DJI Keynote with timestamps to YouTube, now you can also get access to all the 63 workshops and training sessions that took place during the event. DJI offers you all the DJI Airworks 2018 conference session recordings for $249, which in my view is a small price to pay to get access to a treasure of knowledge and experience.

This video shows the entire DJI Keynote from the first day of DJI AirWorks. My seating position was not ideal, but if you want to hear and/or see what DJI Had to say about things, like the Mavic 2 Enterprise, DJI Flight Simulator, DJI Terra and the various partnerships with companies like American Airlines, Southern Company, Microsoft, Skycatch, Kespry, Union Pacific and AutoModality, you will find it here. The video is over two and a half hours long, but I have included timestamps so that you can skip to the important sections. Enjoy!

The Commercial UAV Policy Panel (The new drone policy era ahead – How FAA Reauthorization will impact your business) was one of the most informing panels, I attended during DJI’s Airworks 2018. It provided an update and perspective of what commercial drone operators can expect now that the FAA Reauthorization Act has been signed into law. The panel consisted of some heavyweights from the drone industry, including three lawyers and a few pilots. All of them, experts on the subject matter.
I tried to capture the entire session on camera but unfortunately missed a little bit at the beginning and towards the end due to battery switching, full memory cards, etc. Either way, if you are a commercial drone operator and want to find out what the latest is, I highly recommend watching the video below.

Here we continue with Part II of the coverage of the DJI AirWorks event in Dallas, TX. For Part I click here. The second half of DJI’s keynote started with Mario Rebello, DJI’s Vice President and Country Manager of North America. Let’s jump right in.
This year’s AirWorks event from DJI started with a ton of news and partnership announcements. It is obvious that the drone maker means business when it comes to the Enterprise market. DJI started with the introduction of the Mavic 2 Enterprise yesterday, but today they followed that product release up with a lot more. Let’s dive in.
