We're excited to announce the first IATA Drones Innovation Weekend, taking place in Barcelona on 30-31 March. Participants in this innovation weekend will develop proof-of-concept for the safe operation and business impact of drones in an aviation context. This Drones Innovation Weekend will be the first of its kind to bring together innovators who will develop new concepts of operating drones for carriage of passengers and goods which can be used for an airport or airspace; from automated VTOL taxis to last mile parcel delivery.
IATA, along with our invaluable partners, look forward to welcoming innovators, corporate developers, and aerospace enthusiasts to participate in this event and showcase how they would solve various challenges through creative concepts and application of technology. There will be prizes for the winners, including a coveted speaking slot to present their solutions and proposed concepts of operations at the prestigious 2019 IATA Safety & Flight Operations conference which takes place in Barcelona a few days later.
The IATA Drones Innovation Weekend is free to participate and open to all interested participants from around the world. Additional information will be posted on our website soon!
