After the lockdowns and limitations of the last two years, the DronePrep team were excited to finally see friends from across the industry – in person! – at the DroneX Trade Show and Conference, held last week at the ExCel centre in London.

DronePrep’s Gareth Whatmore joined Aerospace Cornwall to share the successes of the Future Flight Phase II drone delivery project in the Isles of Scilly, a major step forward for UK drone delivery and a great example of the region’s investment in technology and innovation.

The two-day show also saw DronePrep Co-founder and CTO Claire Owen serve on the judging panel for the DroneX Innovation Awards. The panel visited a number of innovative DroneX exhibitors and, after a 3-minute pitch from each candidate and a long deliberation, Airial Robotics was crowned the winner for their Gyrotrak.

The DroneX Trade Show was an excellent opportunity to find out about companies from all areas of drone use, from drone manufacturers, to software providers, to end-users looking to deploy drones in their day-to-day operations.

“It was great to finally meet the amazing people in drones who I’ve had the pleasure of zoom-ing and emailing these last few months! I joined DronePrep before the UK lockdown was over, so it’s really the first opportunity I’ve had to see people face to face. We were thrilled to see the industry come together and exhibit all the latest innovations in UAVs.
