Commercial UAV Expo’s launch on 5 – 7 October 2015 has been lauded as a success for precision measurement professionals who gathered for three days of education, networking, and buying and selling solutions at a conference and exhibition focused on the technology revolutionising countless industries.

More than 1500 attendees from 30 countries attended the show, representing key growth markets for drones, including surveying and mapping; civil infrastructure; mining; construction; process, power and utilities; precision agriculture; law enforcement, security and search and rescue (SAR).

The bustling exhibit floor had 120 exhibitors from 14 countries showcasing cutting-edge solutions including airframes, components, sensors, software and services.

The event took place at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.

“Large-enterprise asset owners are eager to take to the skies”, said Lisa Murray, Director of Commercial UAV Expo.

“For many industrial applications, UAV technology has the potential to be a faster, safer, and more accurate way to collect critical data than other methods. As with any new technology, however, there are many questions around implementation and integration. Furthermore, there are regulatory hurdles as well as legal and insurance issues that need to be considered. The conference programming addressed these topics, providing attendees with the information they need to move forward.”

The 2016 event will take place from 31 October – 2 November 2016 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
