Organizers of the third annual Commercial UAV Expo Europe, an international trade fair and conference focused on commercial drone integration and operation for large enterprise end-users and asset owners, have announced an impressive list of exhibitors and supporters for the 2019 event 8-10 April in Amsterdam.

Lisa Murray, group director at Diversified Communications, organizer of the event, says: “Scores of best-in-class UAS vendors, trade media and organizations as well as vertical industry media and organizations have put their support behind Commercial UAV Expo Europe.

“Their endorsement is a vote for Commercial UAV Expo Europe and an important step in creating a single unified event where various stakeholders come together to advance commercial UAS in Europe.” 

The list of exhibitors and supporters is growing daily, and currently contains approximately 100 organizations.

Commercial UAV Expo Europe takes place 8-10 April at the Amsterdam RAI, with pre-conference programming and workshops on Monday 8 April followed by conference programming and exhibits on Tuesday 9 April and Wednesday 10 April.

The event draws vertical industry end-users from across Europe, Asia, Australia the Middle East and around the world.

Murray says: “Commercial UAV Expo Europe is unique in that we’re able to attract highly qualified vertical market buyers to our events.

“Our content and exhibit floor are developed with the large enterprise end-user/asset owner in mind. Our beginnings in surveying and mapping events more than 15 years ago have enabled us to reach professionals in industries including energy and utilities, infrastructure and transportation, construction, surveying and mapping, and more.”

Already, top professionals from a number of leading organizations have registered to attend, including Sakhalin Energy, Ireland Water, Italian Navy, Shell, Energinet, Saudi Aramco, Hamburg Port Authority, Energinet Denmark, Scottish Mountain Rescue, Netherlands Forensic Institute, Wessex Water Authority, Vestas, UK National Grid, Deutsche Telecom, Swisscom, Engie, Geological Survey Ireland, Ferrovial, KPN, Altimetris/SNCF and European Commission.

In addition to the exhibits, Commercial UAV Expo Europe has extensive programming, offering both general sessions and breakout sessions that delve deeply into UAS for specific vertical industries.

Vertical industry sessions focus on construction; energy & utilities; precision agriculture & forestry; public safety; surveying & mapping; transportation and infrastructure. End-user roundtables are being offered on four of these topics and are by invitation only. These will provide participants a deep dive into best practices, opportunities and threats when it comes to UAS in their respective sectors.

Murray says: “Not only is the content critical to these professionals, but the connections forged are priceless.”

Additional features of the programming are vendor-delivered Product Previews, the 2019 Drone Hero Europe contest and Exhibit Hall Theater Programming.
