Call for Speakers

Call for Speakers – Deadline March 8, 2019

Commercial UAV Expo Americas is the leading North American conference and exhibition focused on commercial UAV/UAS integration and operation for large enterprise commercial users. The fifth annual event will take place October 28-30, 2019 at the Westgate Resort in Las Vegas. 

In a market changing as rapidly as UAS, education is critical. At Commercial UAV Expo Americas, we carefully develop conference topics in cooperation with an Advisory Board of esteemed professionals. We thoroughly vet prospective speakers to ensure our speakers are the best in their topic area. Our goal: to provide outstanding, actionable information on the critical issues industrial users face integrating or operating UAS and to provide a glimpse at what’s coming next for UAS.

Can you deliver on these objectives?
If the answer is YES, we invite you to submit an abstract for one of these topic areas:

Product presentations will not be selected for the main program (but are available to exhibiting companies in the Product Previews section of pre-conference programming.)
