BZ Media Announces Expansion of Trade Show Floor at InterDrone Show

The expo hall will now be twice as large as the size of the first InterDrone, held last year.

BZ Media LLC announced today that the trade show floor at InterDrone™ The International Drone Conference & Exposition being held September 7-9 at the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas would be expanding to accommodate very strong demand. The expo hall will now be twice as large as the size of the first InterDrone, held last year.


InterDrone is the largest event dedicated to commercial drones in North America and expects to host 4,000+ commercial drone buyers and flyers who will learn at more than 120 sessions. "Attendance is running well ahead of last year at this time and we have more than 220 media and association partners helping to market and build InterDrone 2016," said Ted Bahr, InterDrone Chairman.

The show floor will now include the Drone Theatre where exhibitors can book time to give 20 minute talks on their products and the problems they solve. "Our technical program, while already the largest and most comprehensive of all the commercial drone shows, couldn't accommodate all of the great content being submitted to InterDrone and the Drone Theatre will give us an additional 48 slots to help educate drone builders, flyers and buyers," said Katie Flash, Director of Conference Programs at BZ Media.

Blue chip UAV companies sponsoring and exhibiting at InterDrone include Diamond Sponsors Yuneec and Multicopter Warehouse, Platinum sponsors 3DR, Autel, DJI, Hubsan, Parrot and PowerVision and key enterprise players including Precision Hawk, SenseFly, Flir, Skyward, Aeronavics, Denton's Insitu, Leptron, LIDAR USA, Novatel and Zeiss.

Building on the successful "Hanger" ballroom for start-ups last year, InterDrone has also announced a start-up zone near the Drone Theatre where companies of less than 2 years can exhibit at a discounted rate starting at $1,695.

BZ Media has also partnered with the CTIA-The Wireless Association® to allow attendees going to CTIA Super Mobility 2016 to also attend InterDrone. CTIA Super Mobility 2016 badge holders gain free "expo badge" attendance for InterDrone, while InterDrone badge holders gain free "expo badge" access to CTIA Super Mobility 2016, with express shuttle bus service between the event sites running during show hours.

Registration for InterDrone—strictly for commercial drone builders, buyers and flyers—is now open at www.InterDrone.com. For information on exhibiting or event sponsorships, please contact Ted Bahr at ted@bzmedia.com or +1 631-421-4158 FREE x101.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
