This September 7,8, 9 and XNUMX of the current year will be held in Las Vegas Nevada - USA the "UAV Expo Americas".  It is North America's leading trade show and conference focusing on commercial UAS integration and operation with more exhibitors than any other commercial drone event. It covers the topics on construction, energy and public services, Forestry and agriculture; Infrastructure and Transportation; Mining and Aggregates; Emergency services and public safety; Safety; and Topography and cartography

In addition, it includes topics on the challenges and opportunities presented by COVID-19, the regulatory landscape, the safe integration of UAS in airspace, and disruptive UAS technologies.

A little more than 100 exhibitors from all over the world will present their innovations, products and solutions related to drones, construction, energy, agriculture, infrastructure, transport, emergency response or cartography. As in the other editions of this great event, it will feature industry vertical sessions that address the unique challenges and opportunities of each industry, as well as best practices for safe and effective drone integration and operations.

The objective of the event is to attract users interested in the UAV industry, providing adequate communication between professionals and leaders of each of the products presented. Thus, the creation of connection opportunities begins, and the negotiations for the acquisition of solutions or products that adapt to the needs. In-depth topics related to the following questions are discussed at the conference:

  • What's going on with the FAA regulation?
  • How can drones accelerate your business?
  • When will we see an integrated UTM ecosystem?
  • How can an organization approach creating a drone program at scale?
  • What will Remote ID mean for the future of the sky?
  • How is the public perception of drones affecting adoption?
  • How should an organization calculate the ROI of UAVs?
  • Is there a best practice approach to enabling enterprise-grade security?
  • What does it mean to implement drones that use AI and ML applications?
  • How can operators better quantify the value of drone technology in terms of productivity, ease of use and profitability?

Best-in-class UASs from the world's leading solution providers are showcased on exhibits, ensuring an efficient way to rate and compare solutions. The activities of the aforementioned days are divided as follows: September 7: Pre-conference, demonstrations and workshops and from September 8 to 9: Programming of conferences and exhibitions.


In the first place, having a space for exchanging ideas with professionals and industry leaders is one of the first reasons why attending the event should be taken into account. How these came to the development of solutions and products to improve the activities or processes that analysts perform on a daily basis.

Another reason is the possibility of connecting with leaders and promoting knowledge in the required area. Next, we can say that this type of event is essential to make the latest technologies visible, promoting demonstrations and generating possible contracts or alliances. At the conference, leaders, professionals or developers can show pre-recordings of the capabilities of their products and demonstrate what they were created for.

Some may wonder, who can attend this event: Asset Owners and Operators, EPC (Engineering / Procurement / Construction), AEC (Architects / Engineers / Construction), Surveyors, Technology Leaders, Project Managers, Farmers and Crop Consultants, First Responders and Law Enforcement.


On the conference website, you can access a series of mostly free webinars related to UAV applications. Some of the titles of these seminars are: "AI Drones: Incorporating Intuitive UAVs Into Workflow","Real-time reporting: UAV impact on public safety”. An opportunity to improve knowledge and engage with the exploitation of these valuable spatial data acquisition tools. In addition, the webinars related to the previous edition of the conference are also uploaded on the web, in case there is anyone interested in reviewing this content.


The costs for the conference vary depending on the date chosen and the type of attendance between $ 150 to $ 895, you can choose a group discount. There are Full passes, One day, Droneresponders, and the entrance only to the showroom. They can also be checked on the event website by clicking here.

The free or free pass is only available for the exhibition area, where you will have access to areas where the most innovative and important UAS commercial technologies in the world are displayed, as well as those that have been created by the main universities in the "University Pavilion ”. In addition to the above, admission to the "Exhibit Hall Theater" is admitted, which will have an educational program for all audiences. People with a free pass will be able to enjoy networking sessions with attendees and those in charge of the stands.

The precautionary measures that were taken into account include: restriction of physical contact, contactless registration, social distancing, regular cleaning, hand hygiene, improvement in food safety, mandatory face covering (use of masks), and also personal qualified to provide first aid.


Commercial UAV Expo Americas is presented by Commercial UAV News and organized by Diversified Communications, a global events producer that also organizes Commercial UAV Expo Europe (Amsterdam, Netherlands), GeoBusiness Show (London, UK) and Geo Week, which comprises from International Lidar Mapping Forum, SPAR 3D Expo & Conference and AEC Next Expo & Conference. You can visit their social networks for more information in the days to come: LinkedIN, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram.

Fortunately for this year Twingeo and Geofumadas participate as supporters of the event, providing wide coverage of the event for all those interested. We will be bringing you all the information first hand.
