NewBay Media has released the full program for the 2015 National Drone Show, a new exciting conference and expo featuring Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) video capture technology.
Held Dec. 2–3, 2015 in the Walter E. Washington Convention Center and co-located with NewBay Media’s Government Video Expo, the National Drone Show will bring thousands of video professionals together for two days of cutting-edge discussions and demos of the latest UAV and video capture systems, management and delivery technologies and techniques. Stampede is the event’s charter Gold Sponsor.
The Drone Show will feature a Drone Flying Cage and a series of free-to-attend sessions on the exhibit floor covering the latest drone technologies and regulatory topics. Educational sessions include “Command & Control for Drones,” “Drones for Large Sporting Event and Entertainment Event Coverage,” “Drones for Law Enforcement/Security/Public Safety,” “Drone-vertising — Using Drones to Deliver Marketing/Advertising Messages,” and “Rise of the Drones: A DMV’s Producer’s Panel for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs).” An after-hours event Dec. 2, hosted by the Television, Internet and Video Association of DC (TIVA-DC), will also focus on UAV/UAS production.

Instructors from Unmanned Vehicle University, the only university in the world licensed to offer graduate degree programs in Unmanned Systems Engineering, will conduct drone-operating demonstrations in the show’s Flying Cage, allowing show attendees to experience firsthand the differing capabilities of various UAV manufacturers — such as DJI, AEE and XLY — and learn which is best suited for their enterprise’s unique needs and requirements.
The show is the only such event that brings together an audience of thousands of video professionals from the Washington region’s government, military, law enforcement, enterprise, broadcast, cable, production, and post production communities. Invited exhibitors include drone manufacturers, drone accessory equipment companies, and drone software and service providers.
