ASCEND will provide practical information about using drones to improve processes and increase profits in precision agriculture, construction and inspections, insurance, journalism, and photo and video fields.
“Learning how to fly a drone is just the beginning,” said Tim Kidwell, Editor-in-Chief of Drone360 and lead member of the Executive Planning Team of the ASCEND Conference & Expo. “Professionals in photography, videography, or journalism need help fine-tuning and marketing those skills. In other industries, experts are gathering information from the air and then need to know how to turn that data into actionable business insights. The focused seminars and workshops at ASCEND will equip drone users with knowledge and tools specific to their own business segment.”
Sessions will help attendees develop commercial application workflows and find resources. A major focus, across all industries represented, will be understanding policy and complying with FAA, state, and local regulations, as well as minimizing financial and legal risk. Drone maintenance and repair are important skills and will also be covered.
