The Summit & Expo





November 7-9, 2016 | Scottsdale, Arizona


The Arizona UAS Summit & Expo will reveal for the first time the current impact of unmanned aircraft systems and the future opportunities linked to Arizona and the greater southwestern U.S. Produced by UAS Magazine and the Arizona Regional Economic Development Foundation, this unprecedented event will provide insight into the regional commercial markets in need of UAS, current or future research and testing activities and ongoing government-led UAV operations and achievements. From the smallest of the small UAVs to the biggest of the big UAVs, the Arizona UAS Summit & Expo will unite industry, end-users and interested parties looking to understand the complexities and immense opportunities present in the UAS space.

With more than 1,200 aerospace companies and the largest government-based UAS center in the world in Arizona, the Southwest’s role in furthering the breakout of commercial UAS activity or the continuation of mission critical UAS operations is primed to expand.

Taking place November 7-9, 2016, at the We-Ko-Pa Resort & Conference Center in Scottsdale, Arizona, this unique event will offer presentations, content offerings, tours and more spanning the entire spectrum of UAS topics. State dignitaries and leaders will address the region’s commitment and plans for UAS. Federal institutions, including the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Department of Customs and Border Protection, will share their needs and general perspective for UAS. Commercial end-users—from miners to agronomists—will present on their work and requirements for drones. And, regional research institutions will update attendees on the state of UAS technology and deployment strategies being developed at the university level. The Southwest’s best UAV companies will also be there to share their vision for the future.
