Until recently, the opportunity to have a celebrity attend an event, attach themselves to a name-brand or endorse a certain product or idea was untouchable. The thought of paying a person to promote a product was seen as something only Fortune 500 companies could afford. Social media has changed all that with brands and businesses utilizing celebrity influencers to connect directly with their demographics and increase sales and profits.
InterDrone, the International Drone Conference and Exposition
More than 2,000 drone builders, flyers, and buyers are expected to attend the first annual event bringing together all the key participants in the growing market for commercial drone aircraft.
The three-day event will feature a two-day technical conference for drone-building engineers and software developers and an overlapping conference for the buyers and flyers of commercial drones, with more than 60 classes, panels and keynotes in all.
There also will be an exposition with 60-plus exhibitors expected to display their latest products and technology.
