AUVSI CEO to Deliver Remarks at Drone World Congress in Shenzhen

Wynne will also meet Chinese companies exhibiting at AUVSI’s XPONENTIAL

SHENZHEN, China — Brian Wynne, president and CEO of the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI), will deliver a keynote address on Friday, June 23, at the Drone World Congress 2017 in Shenzhen, China. The conference will bring together delegates from around the world to discuss the latest advances in unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) technology.

AUVSI, the world’s largest non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of unmanned systems and robotics, represents more than 7,500 members from more than 60 countries, including China. Wynne will provide attendees of the Drone World Congress with a snapshot of the current state of the UAS industry in the United States, its regulatory framework and the commercial applications of the technology that are anticipated in the future.

“I am excited to once again visit Shenzhen to speak at the Drone World Congress,” Wynne said. “I look forward to discussing opportunities for companies and stakeholders around the world to capitalize on the vast potential that the UAS industry in the United States stands to offer.”

An AUVSI report on the economic impact of commercial UAS has forecasted the industry to create more than 100,000 new jobs and more than $82 billion in economic impact within the first ten years following UAS integration into the U.S. airspace.

The Drone World Congress 2017 will be held jointly with the Shenzhen International UAV Expo 2017. Attendees across academia, government, and industry will discuss topics surrounding the development of UAS technology, including for commercial uses such as agriculture, environmental protection, surveying, public safety and energy. Over 20,000 people are expected to attend the expo.

While Wynne is in China, he will meet with Sunshine International Trade Show Promotion Co., Ltd. The company is a partner with AUVSI on XPONENTIAL, the association’s trade show and conference, which is held annually in the United States.

Last month in Dallas, Texas, more than 7,500 industry leaders and professionals from over 650 cutting-edge companies, representing more than 55 countries, came together at XPONENTIAL 2017 to showcase innovations in unmanned systems. Sunshine helped organize the show’s China Pavilion, which included exhibits of the latest developments in Chinese robotics technology.

Sunshine is currently working with Chinese companies that are planning to participate in XPONENTIAL 2018, which will take place at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver. Educational programs will run April 30 to May 3, with exhibits open from May 1 to 3. For more information, visit www.xponential.org.
