The Summit & Expo

November 6-8, 2017 | Mesa, Arizona

The second annual Arizona UAS Summit & Expo will once again highlight the crucial storylines and emerging trends shaping the unmanned aircraft systems industry on the national and regional levels. Produced by the team from UAS Magazine in collaboration with the Arizona Regional Economic Development Foundation, this year’s event will feature three days of expert commentary, high-level presentations and networking opportunities designed for decision makers currently or potentially linked to UAS.
