Commercial UAV Expo Adds Exhibit Space Following Initial Sell-Out

Drone Professionals will find 130+ Booths of UAS Solutions at SPAR Point Group’s Inaugural Event in Las Vegas

Portland, Maine August 20, 2015

The exhibit floor for the 2015 Commercial UAV Expo completely sold out almost two months before the show's launch, spurring event organizer SPAR Point Group to add space to handle the overwhelming demand. "UAS companies have thrown their support behind Commercial UAV Expo," said Lisa Murray, Commercial UAV Expo Director. "Many of them know us from exhibiting at other events we organize in the geospatial arena and are confident in our ability to deliver qualified asset owners and a strong return on investment."

With the addition of a new hall, more than 100 airframe manufacturers, component and sensor suppliers, software providers and service companies from more than a dozen countries will be exhibiting at the inaugural event taking place October 5-7, 2015 in Las Vegas.

Exhibitors that have signed on in just the last few weeks include:

"Asset owners/operators in key growth industries will find a vast array of UAV solutions on the exhibit floor to qualify and compare," said Ms. Murray. There's tremendous interest in UAV technology among commercial users because of its ability to collect critical data in a way that's faster, safer, and more accurate than many other methods, she said. "Data is the lifeblood of so many industries and drone technology provides the opportunity to increase the volume, speed and accuracy for collecting and analyzing data."

Hundreds of professionals representing asset owners and operators have already registered to attend Commercial UAV Expo, including decision-makers from these leading organizations:

Anadarko Petroleum Corporation
Barrick Gold Corporation
Department of Transportation (multiple states)
DPR Construction
General Motors

In addition to the exhibit floor, the Conference Program features presentations from UAV industry experts sharing key insights into the issues asset owners face when implementing UAS, including systems selection and integration; developing enterprise workflows, guidelines and policies; data management and integration; and legal, safety and regulatory considerations.

Registration is available online now. Prices increase September 15. UAV professionals are encouraged to register early for the best rates.
