You're invited to join us for a new two-day conference and expo, the National Drone Show (, held Dec. 2–3 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.

Exploring the the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) for video production, this event will bring video professionals together for two days of cutting-edge discussions and demos of the latest UAV and video capture, management and delivery technologies and techniques.

We'll feature a drone flying cage and free-to-attend sessions on the exhibit floor covering the latest drone technologies and regulatory topics. Additionally, in partnership with Drone Show gold sponsor Stampede, we are offering paid training sessions for UAV users.

The National Drone Show brings together an audience of thousands of video professionals from the Washington, D.C., area's government, military, law enforcement, enterprise, broadcast, cable, production and postproduction communities. Invited exhibitors include drone manufacturers, drone accessory equipment companies, and drone software and service providers.

"The National Drone Show will mark the first time that video professionals will have the opportunity to focus fully on the impact unmanned aerial vehicles and drone video systems can have on their operations," says Kevin Kelly, president and chief operating officer of Stampede. "The show's presentations and training sessions will provide attendees with the information, tools and resources required to evolve their business to capitalize on this multi-billion-dollar profit opportunity."

Instructors from Unmanned Vehicle University, the only university in the world that offers graduate degree programs in unmanned systems engineering, will conduct drone operation demonstrations in the show's flying cage. Show attendees can experience firsthand the capabilities of UAVs from several manufacturers—including DJI, AEE and XLY—and learn which products will best suit their enterprise's requirements.

"Drones have exploded onto the radar of virtually every industry," explains Carmel King, executive vice president, Broadcast & Video Group, NewBay Media. "They raise fascinating business possibilities as well as new considerations involving regulation, security, privacy and safety.

"This is also a marketplace of vast potential. By some estimates, sales of unmanned aerial systems are expected to exceed $8 billion by 2018, with the commercial sector exceeding $5 billion. We're pleased to bring the discussion about drones to the heart of the nation's capital."
