Empowering the Ecosystem

Oct 30th - Nov 1st | Hilton Anatole Hotel, Dallas, Texas

WHAT IS AIRWORKS?

DJI - the world leader in civilian drones and aerial imaging technology – brings together the full commercial drone industry for its annual AirWorks conference.

The event highlights companies that are at the forefront of enterprise drone adoption, showcases new DJI technologies, and offers a window into DJI Enterprise's strategic initiatives for the upcoming year.

For AirWorks 2018, the conference will focus on the growing commercial drone ecosystem and how developers, partners and operators can work with DJI to reshape the global economy with drones.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND & WHY?

Business leaders, customers, and partners that are looking for ways to improve operational efficiencies while cutting costs through commercial UAV applications.

AirWorks will feature not just thought leadership regarding the future of the commercial UAV industry, but will also provide practical training to address industrial obstacles including safety, inefficiency, and costs in many of today’s industrial sectors.

WHAT DIFFERENTIATES AIRWORKS?

AirWorks is the premier commercial UAV conference that targets the entire ecosystem, as opposed to just focusing on hardware, software, or services. We provide together a platform for industry solution suppliers connect and learn through customized training sessions.
