Energy Drone & Robotics Coalition to Gather Thousands at July Virtual Summit

The Energy Drone & Robotics Coalition is bringing "unmanned" to a new level with the first major meeting opportunity of the year for thousands of UAV, robotics and data / AI industrial and energy leaders.

This July 14-16, the Energy Drone & Robotics Coalition global community will come together virtually for three days of live industry keynotes, asset owner panels and real-time moderated discussion groups on the most important industry topics. The virtual expo hall offers 1:1 meetings, energy company / team private meeting rooms, demos and focused use cases with hardware, software and service solution providers.

The all-new content for the Virtual Summer Summit was developed in conjunction with the industry Advisory Board to ensure we build on the foundation from the past four years of best practices, use cases and proven ROI with unmanned technology .

Breakout Session Streams include:
• Enterprise UAV Operations (including sessions on Industrial Drone Delivery & Unmanned Cargo and BVLOS)
• Energy Robotics & Automation
• Data / Analytics / AI

"We have partnered with next-gen digital platforms that go way beyond a series of webinars to actively connect the industrial / energy unmanned systems industry and give them access to interact on a global basis," said Sean Guerre, director of the Energy Drone & Robotics Coalition. "We see the ongoing need of connecting solution providers, reviewing innovative approaches and sharing sector knowledge as vital while the need for remote and unmanned operations accelerates."

This is the first of two summits being organized by the Energy Drone & Robotics Coalition this year. The second hybrid event, the postponed 4th annual Energy Drone & Robotics Summit, is taking place in Houston this November 10 - 11. "Hybrid" means that the event will take place both physically / in-person and simultaneously be held virtually / live streamed around the world to serve the community's needs for maximum participation and exchange of best practices, connections and technology updates.

Registration for the July 14 - 16 Energy Drone & Robotics Virtual Summer Summit is now open, available here.
