Hundreds of drone specialists from across Europe and beyond will gather at the International Drone Show in Denmark in August in Denmark to discuss the latest drone developments and explore future potential. Leading experts will present key topics including defence, Nordic airspace, vertiports, digital air traffic control and securing critical infrastructure.
Denmark has become a leading northern European hub for drone technologies. On 29 August, drone companies and end users from Denmark and abroad will gather at the International Drone Show at HCA Airport in Odense to discuss the latest drone innovations and explore new application potential. The conference will provide insights into business-critical topics from the drone industry, public sector organisations and buyers.
“The drone industry is evolving rapidly in response to market demands – and the International Drone Show in Denmark is a gateway to new insights on the latest developments from Denmark and northern Europe. It’s also a great way to connect with new partners from the public and private sector. As something new this year, participants can pre-book business meetings. We’re looking forward to drone companies connecting with key industry stakeholders,” says Lisa Rosenlyst Hansen from Odense Robotics.
