The symposium will bring together key stakeholders from industry, academia, government and international organizations in the unmanned aviation sector to share technologies, regulatory best practices, investment opportunities, success stories and challenges. Speakers include partners, investors, regulators and suppliers in one of the first urban drone delivery networks worldwide, where automatic BVLOS operations are setting the stage and shaping the future towards safe and reliable UAS operations at scale, and also proving concepts that will aid in understanding the needs and implications to deploy an Advanced Air Mobility environment.
The symposium will be an opportunity for networking, collaboration and coordination between representatives from the private sector, civil aviation authorities, government, and airspace users in the urban environment. It also provides a unique opportunity to showcase the collaborative ecosystem that is allowing Quito, ECUADOR to be recognized as one of the international hubs for urban air logistics technology.
