InterDrone has released the list of speakers at the InterDrone 2021 conference, with industry leaders from Skydio, Auterion, NUAIR, Iris Automation, and more set to appear. There are close to 100 speakers in total with backgrounds in energy, infrastructure, public safety, regulation, and construction.

InterDrone 2021 is taking place from August 10 to 12 in Dallas. You can register to attend the in-person event for $90 for just the expo or for $615 to have access to the pre-conference workshop, classes, panels, and the expo itself.

The event is going to be full of interesting conversations and presentations from this year’s speakers. This will be a great chance for anyone to learn more about drones and how they are being used. Along with the speakers, there will also be many drone-related companies in attendance, allowing you a chance to talk to them or even collaborate in the future.
