International Drone Expo coming soon — with something for everyone

Looking for a vibrant drone event in Los Angeles? The International Drone Expo is coming to the Los Angeles Convention Center in about two weeks.

It’s different than most of the drone shows out there — there’s going to be something for everyone. Here are the 5 things I’m most looking forward to.

5. LEGO Drone build: Because who doesn’t want to build their own drone with LEGOs?

4.The Best Gig in Town; Film, Television and Entertainment: This is one of the panels I’m looking forward to most. We’re in Los Angeles, so it only makes sense that we hear how the local pros are using drones!

3. Women In Drones Breakfast: I’m biased, because I’m on the stage for this one — and not to mention there is free food involved! This will be a great opportunity to connect with other female drone enthusiasts in Los Angeles.

2. Film Festival: I love a good drone film festival! The first time I ever attended one, I walked out re-energized and inspired to change up my approach to aerial photography from the shots I’m used to taking. Film festivals give me new perspectives on different angles and approaches to storytelling — giving me inspiration to step up my own photography.

  1. Drone Racing: IDE will host its first ever Drone Racing Cup, custom designed by drone racing league MultiGP. An indoor race course will takeover part of the Los Angeles Convention Center, larger than other indoor courses, complete with advanced obstacles and a massive spectating area for expo attendees. While every drone conference has panelists and keynote speakers, not every drone conference has drone racing you can watch throughout the day. It’s a reminder that despite all the serious policy, regulation and safety discussions (which are extremely important), we’re in it to have fun. That’s what our passion for drones stems from, so let’s celebrate it with a drone race!

Are you heading to IDE? Let me know in the comments below, and I can’t wait to meet you there! IDE takes place Dec. 9 and 10 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
