The health and safety of every member of our community and our team are of the utmost importance to us. After closely monitoring the risk and impact of COVID-19 on a daily basis, and speaking at length with members of our community, InterDrone, which had been scheduled for August 18-21, 2020, has been postponed to December 15-17, 2020. The event will still be held at the Hyatt Regency in Dallas, TX. Recent developments have made it impossible to effectively execute an August event that delivers the level of connection, education, and customer value our community expects. This is due to developments regarding COVID-19 that we are all familiar with at this point, including, but not limited to, the declaration of a National State of Emergency; various statewide states of emergency across the nation; the latest federal measures, including guidelines on the phased reopening of the U.S. economy; the declaration by the WHO of COVID-19 as a pandemic; the number of confirmed cases worldwide and domestically; current quarantines, containment areas, stay at home orders, and restrictions on congregating and large gatherings imposed by states and other government and public health authorities; and the various company-imposed travel restrictions on employees affecting attendees and participating companies.
InterDrone’s mission is to connect, educate, and provide the necessary knowledge, tools, and business connections to advance the commercial drone industry. This priority is the driving force behind our commitment to producing a 2020 event that meets the needs and expectations of our community.
We are focused on continuing to help foster connection and learning within the commercial drone community, and to provide the necessary support and information to prepare our community for a successful 2020 event. Through webinars, podcasts, white papers, archived keynote presentations, panel discussions, and more, we plan to continue producing and providing exposure to the most up-to-date and necessary information needed to make informed business decisions and lead the commercial drone industry forward.
We appreciate your ongoing loyalty to InterDrone and thank you in advance for your understanding. Our website InterDrone.com will continue to be the place to find the most up to date information regarding the event and any updates.
