MELVILLE, N.Y., March 23, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BZ Media LLC announced today that Chris Anderson, New York Times best-selling author, CEO of 3D Robotics, and founder of DIY Drones will deliver a keynote address at InterDrone™, the International Drone Conference and Exposition being held September 9, 10, 11th at The Rio in Las Vegas. Anderson's keynote is scheduled for the morning of September 10. More than 3,000 drone builders, flyers and buyers are expected to attend the largest annual event bringing together all the key participants in the growing market for commercial drone aircraft.
Anderson is author of the New York Times bestselling books "The Long Tail" and "Free" and also published "Makers: The New Industrial Revolution." He was also Editor-in-Chief of Wired Magazine and wrote for The Economist.
"This is an incredible time to be all-in on Drones, as we've only scratched the service of what this amazing technology can do. I said recently that this is the first minute of the day for this industry, and that we're just starting to see what happens once we take complexity out of the equation. That's what you'll see reflected at InterDrone, and I am excited to be delivering a keynote address at the show," said Anderson.
InterDrone, a three-day event, features a two-day technical conference for drone-building engineers and software developers, and an overlapping two-day conference for the buyers and flyers of commercial drones, with more than 70 classes, panels and keynotes in all. There will also be an exposition with 80+ exhibitors expected to display their latest products and technology.
More than 50 media partners on five continents have already signed on to support and help grow InterDrone, including Frost & Sullivan, RotorDrone, Unmanned Magazine, Geo Connexion, Chip Design, GIS Cafe, Electronic Products, Unmanned Aerial Online, DroneBlog, Embedded Developer, Linux Journal, RTC Magazine, Unmanned Tech Solutions, GeoConnexion, and China Tech News.
The exposition will allow manufacturers of drones to both source products from OEM exhibitors, as well as meet and sell to professional commercial drone buyers in the agriculture, journalism/film, search-and-rescue, and real estate industries, among others. The exposition will also include a drone demonstration area, the Yes Fly Zone™.
Registration for the event—strictly for trade and commercial drone builders, buyers and flyers—is now open at www.InterDrone.com. The Call for Speakers will close on May 15.
