New Fall Dates Announced for Energy Drone & Robotics Summit

To maintain the safety of its community due to the global impact of COVID-19, the Energy Drone & Robotics Coalition announced on March 18 that the June Summit was postponed.

Now, we are excited to announce the new dates to bring the community together for the Summit & Expo this fall, along with added virtual opportunities.

The live event will now take place November 10 – 11, 2020 in the same location, at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott.

The new dates were determined based on meetings with stakeholders, partners, the Advisory Board and other events in the industry to ensure the engaged and robust community can come together in its fullest and provide the highest quality experience.

Planned co-located events from June have all confirmed their group’s participation for the new November dates. These events include:

  • DRONERESPONDERS Emergency Management and Disaster Forum for UAS
  • Industrial Drone Delivery & Unmanned Cargo Forum
  • Energy Corporate UAV / Robotics Team Meetings

The Coalition is working with the venue and all Summit contractors to enact CDC guidelines and detailed measures to prioritize a healthy and safe environment for all participants at the Summit, including audience spacing; additional sanitization procedures for the hotel facility, expo, demos and conference spaces; signage displaying best practices to maintain a healthy environment; and hand sanitizer provided to all in attendance.

In addition to these measures, the Coalition is offering flexibility for everyone who would like to participate in the Summit, including added virtual opportunities for those who cannot physically attend. Prior to the November’s Summit, the Energy Drone & Robotics Coalition will continue to work with you to bring the industry together digitally and provide top notch energy drone and robotics content throughout the spring and summer.

These initiatives launched immediately with the development and release of the COVID-19 Resource Directory for the industry. Details on the Think Tank Thursday virtual event series will be released shortly, along with additional virtual and live events, to ensure we are connecting unmanned leaders with knowledge and technology solutions year-round.

We look forward to working together to continue to be the best resource on the business and technology of unmanned systems in energy operations from the ‘stars to the sea floor.’ Our market is strong and resilient, and we are already seeing a rapidly growing interest for automation of operations and data / AI with unmanned systems. This will remain a core function in the industrial sector that will continue to be built this year and for years to come.

Anything you can do to help us spread the word about this update to your colleagues, followers or subscribers would be greatly appreciated. To assist, here’s a downloadable word doc with our official press release and media assets, like logos and banners.

We will re-open registration soon and will keep everyone posted!

We are so thankful for your continued support and for your understanding and patience during this time.
