Colin McClean, Director Land Equipment, said: “Having been a founding member of DVD when I worked in CSVL IPT in 2001, I am a huge fan of what the event offers. We currently live in challenging times, both operationally and financially, so as never before we must work as a team for mutually beneficial outcomes. DVD2018 will afford both customer and supplier the opportunity to enhance our shared understanding of the challenges that we face and to generate solutions. I look forward to welcoming you to Millbrook.”

01 Nov 17. Commercial UAV Expo and Drone World Expo Unite. Lisa Murray, Director of Commercial UAV Expo, announced today the acquisition of Drone World Expo by Diversified Communications, organizers of Commercial UAV Expo Americas. Ms. Murray made the announcement during her welcoming remarks this morning at Commercial UAV Expo, which is taking place this week at the Westgate Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.

And, with our European event and digital platform, we are making it easier for drone companies to reach markets domestic and international with a frequency and reach no one else in the market can offer.”
Both Commercial UAV Expo and Drone World Expo focus on delivering top-notch conference content and best-in-class solutions that meet the needs of large commercial end user/asset owners in top vertical markets.
