FAI International Drones Conference and Expo
The FAI International Drones Conference and Expo is a unique event that combines an absorbing conference, a fascinating expo and a world-class, drone-racing contest.
Attracting expert speakers from around the world, it offers a platform for organisations, businesses and individuals to connect around three main themes: Safety, Innovation and Sports.
The 2018 edition will take place in Lausanne, Switzerland from 31 August to 2 September as part of the EPFL (Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne) Drone Days event.
As in 2017, it will be held at the 20,000m2 EPFL Rolex Learning Center, a learning laboratory, library and international cultural centre.
From the evolution of drone sports, to cutting-edge technology, and safety issues, for an overview over the most recent developments in the world of drones, attendance is a must.
At this year’s event, visitors will be able to:
- Listen to fascinating presentations on the themes of Safety, Innovation and Sports, made by expert speakers from around the world
- Learn about pioneering technologies and discover how drones are already changing our view on the world
- Connect with drone enthusiasts from a variety of countries and backgrounds
