InterDrone, which is the largest commercial drone show in North America, will be held September 5 – 7 at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas, and is expected to draw more than 3,500 UAV professionals from around the world.

The Enterprise After Hours will take place in the evening on Wednesday, September 5, and are concurrent special networking events with dedicated rooms and discussion in the following verticals: Construction, Aggregates and Mining, Inspection (which will include both energy and infrastructure inspection), Precision Agriculture, Public Safety and Surveying and Mapping.
