InterDrone Adds "The Bench" to Its Exhibit Hall

MELVILLE, N.Y., June 29, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BZ Media LLC announced today the addition of "The Bench" to InterDrone, the International Drone Conference and Exposition. This special section on the main exhibitor floor will feature prominent law firms with expertise in UAV issues, policy, and regulations who will be available to attendees at InterDrone, which will be held September 9-10-11 at The Rio in Las Vegas.

Recognizing the growing importance of UAV legal issues, InterDrone is also presenting 14 different sessions and panels on legal-related issues, including "FAA Regulations: The Latest Outlook," a panel moderated by thought leader Lisa Ellman of Hogan Lovells. Panelists include Michael Drobac of Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld, and Brandon Schulman of Kramer Levin, among others.

"InterDrone™ will be the largest commercial drone conference and expo in North America this year, reaching every constituency in this red-hot market," said Ted Bahr, chairman of InterDrone. "It only made sense to add this special section in our Exhibit Hall to offer the most comprehensive program and expo to our attendees," continued Bahr.

"Obtaining 333 exemptions is a tricky process as well as navigating the UAV legal landscape as a whole, which is why The Bench is such a great addition to the InterDrone Exhibit Hall. It really helps round out the program and allows attendees to get questions answered and connect with leading law firms in the space," said Ross Buntrock of Arnall Golden Gregory. Buntrock will also be teaching a 60-minute session on "Obtaining Section 333 Exemptions and Overview of State Law Developments."

In addition to The Bench, InterDrone will feature more than 100 classes, panels and keynotes in all. This will be combined with an exposition showcasing 80+ exhibitors expected to display their latest products and technology. More than 60 sessions and 70 speakers have been posted already.

Joe Thompson, an attorney with Husch Blackwell who will be presenting at InterDrone, commented: "The Bench should provide a great opportunity for commercial builders, flyers and buyers of UAS to network with attorneys who represent clients in the industry. My colleague Tom Gemmell, who is also presenting, and I look forward to meeting attendees and answering their questions concerning the development of the legal and regulatory framework for commercial UAS use." Thompson will be presenting on legal issues in the Precision Agriculture sector.
