Professional Drone Demo Day (PD3) is a unique, one-day event offering participants first-hand exposure to world-class drone innovations. Top leaders in drone technology will be gathered along a single grass airstrip to fly their crafts along the majestic California Coast. Participants can engage with demonstrators in the event lounge and watch live demonstrations in the dedicated vendor-flying zones. Instead of watching videos, attendees can see the technology LIVE.

Professional Drone Demonstration Day is Different

PD3 allows participants to experience professional drones first hand. Unlike any other event, operators from industry-renowned drone manufacturers will be flying their platforms live to demonstrate ease of use, technology and workflow. Dedicated fly times and lounge areas provide attendees direct contact with manufacturers to gain insight into specific drone operational requirements, visualize the collected data and ask questions of vendor’s representatives.
