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 sixth annual event will take place September 15-17, 2020 at the Paris 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?
