Kelly Marshalldrone, Events, UAV

UAVThe Midwest Drone Conference is just around the corner.  If you’re a user of this technology save the date for this follow-up event to the Precison Aerial Ag Show that was held this summer at the Farm Progress show.  It will be held January 26-27, 2017 at the Decatur Conference Center and Hotel in Decatur Illinois.  ADM Crop Risk Services is the sponsor of the conference.

The Midwest Drone Show will feature a full day of speakers January 26 addressing issues that will help farmers and agriculture better use emerging UAV technology in their operation. Speakers will be from the FAA, agribusiness and the UAV industry. On Wednesday, January 27, speakers from the FAA, engineering, construction, utilities, and real estate will focus on the use of UAV technology for facility and utility inspection, aerial photography, and emergency services.

The Expo portion of the event will feature UAV manufacturers, vendors of software, and UAV accessories, as well as agricultural input and equipment suppliers. Many will be speaking in their own breakout sessions to better inform potential customers about their products and services.

There is no charge to attend but you will need to register online before January 23.  After that date there will be a $20 registration fee.  Lunch is available on the 26th for $15 per person.
