Explore the innovative uses of drones

Aerial photography. Recreational flying. Pizza delivery. These are uses for drones you may be familiar with, but there is so much more to the buzz.  Join us and presenters from across the drone industry for a discussion about how drone technology is being used for humanitarian purposes, like flying stealthily at night over the African savannahs and forest to locate and drive off poachers; providing entertaining light shows at large venues across the world; supporting city infrastructure; and providing disaster relief help.  Our panelists, ranging from hobbyists to regulators to entrepreneurs, will also reflect on emerging issues regarding privacy and airspace.
Come early to “meet” some drones.
Featured speakers:

  • John Petersen of Air Shepherd
  • Will Hetzler of Zipline
  • Sharon Rossmark of Women & Drones


  • Jim Williams of Unmanned Solutions LLC and former head of the FAA’s Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Integration Office
