About IDE

The International Drone Expo (IDE) brings together the most innovative and talented members of the commercial drone community from around the world to participate in the global aerial robotics phenomena.

IDE draws over 100+ international exhibitors and 3,500+ buyers from around the world. The two day event will feature an exhibit floor displaying a variety of drones, parts, and services for commercial applications in cinematography, photography, real estate, emergency response, agriculture, oil & gas, mining, mapping and surveying, underwater exploration, and law enforcement, along with a host of other sectors for commercialists and consumers.

IDE is also the host of the leading commercial drone conference in the world. The high level business conference will bring together the leading experts in the drone industry, focusing on the latest rules and regulations, in-depth the challenges and solutions, case studies, as well as how drone technology can help facilitate business and improve bottom line performance.

The economic impact of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) – (Drones) is estimated to total more than $82 billion in the United States alone during the first 10 years of commercial integration of operations in the National Airspace System.

By its nature, UAS-Drones and related industries leverage many key technologies including Sensors, Data Analytics, Aeronautics, Aviation, Advanced and Additive Manufacturing, Cyber- Physical and Autonomous Systems Security, Precision Agriculture, First Responders, Geospatial Information, and Simulation. This industry will influence hundreds of thousands of jobs, businesses and markets with (STEAM), Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics attributes.   

IDE is designed to be the meeting place for the global drone community. It is the international link for industries, engineers, artists and practitioners to develop economic opportunities, regional advocacy, enhanced partnerships, and collaborations that are vital for the development and economic growth of international unmanned aerial robotics in civil aviation.

This preeminent UAS-Drone event has a history of delivering to the international UAS-Drone industry a forum of sorts that allows all attendees, professionals, governments, companies and institutions to interact to the quickly expanding global UAS-Drone industry.

We are just beginning a new era of aviation. The future is now and drones are here to stay! With more sophisticated sensors, enhanced digital technology, GPS and LIDAR systems, drones and other robotic vehicles are revolutionizing the way we live and do business. Drones are now an economically feasible choice for business owners and prosumers ushering in the biggest gateway to aviation we have ever seen.  Much like the internet boom, drones are changing our lives for the better. The commercial drone sector will continue to be a key growth factor in creating next generation technology.
