Just on the heels of news about Interdrone, there’s another great conference coming up in the west.
The annual 2018 IDE drone conference (International Drone Expo) this year is being wrapped into the broader Mobile World Congress Americas. The 2018 IDE drone onference will run Sept. 12-14 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
I’m giving away 5 pairs of free tickets, compliments of the Drone Girl team!! Tickets are $300 each, which means you could win a $600 value. Scroll down to the bottom of this post for details on how to win!
With the conference being held as part of the broader Mobile World Congress, attendees will have access to not only drone-related events, but also big draws such as a access to the IOT Talks, a welcome party with drinks and a DJ, and even a 5k run, free to all attendees!
And since it’s not just a drone-focused conference, this one is expected to be huge. 25,000 attendees and 1,000 companies are projected to attend.
There’s also going to be a GSMA Women4Tech program, including speed coaching and networking sessions and specialised Power of Diversity tour.
Most of the drone-specific events will be held on Friday, Sept. 14, with speakers including DJI’s Director of Education, Romeo Durscher, ABC News and Good Morning America’s Production Manager, Maria Stefanopoulos, and PrecisionHawk Senior VP of Policy, Diana Marina Cooper. (Here’s the complete drone day schedule).
The Drone Zone will be operating throughout the entire conference, located in the West Hall.
In case you hadn’t realized yet, the conference is the weekend directly after Interdrone, which means a great excuse for people traveling longer distances to make a week-long, West Coast road trip out of it. Palm Springs? Disneyland? I’ll take it!!
