First event targeting drone distribution channel attracts nearly 500 attendees from 17 countries in debut
BZ Media LLC announced a successful launch of Drone Dealer Expo held at the Florida Hotel, in Orlando, on April 11-13. Drone Dealer Expo, a three-day summit focused on the emerging drone Channel, brought together manufacturers, distributors, dealers, and integrators to exchange ideas and techniques, and learn about new products and selling opportunities.
The three-day event featured keynotes by Parrot, Yuneec, SkyLogic Research, Amazon, and NPD and more than 40 sessions focused on the hottest growth opportunities for retailers and winning tactics and techniques for more effective sales and marketing efforts. A highlight of the event was a drone racing exhibition that took place outside the hotel on the first afternoon.
Speaker Jonathan Rupprecht, Esq., said, "Drone Dealer Expo was specifically-targeted, and hit the bulls-eye of educating resellers about business essentials (legal, social media, marketing, etc.) and facilitating relationships between businesses involved in selling, manufacturing, and integrating drones.”
“The drone industry is exploding and as it matures, more and more product will be moved through reseller distribution channels to reach the ultimate buyer. This summit-style conference enabled more in-depth conversations and business to get done than at the busy mega-events,” said BZ Media CEO Ted Bahr.
Organizations and media supporting Drone Dealer Expo include the AMA, Wireless Dealer Magazine, Hobby Merchandiser, FierceRetail, Business Solutions, MultiRotor Forums, Unmanned Aerial Online, Phantom Pilots, 3DR Pilots, Unmanned Tech Solutions, RotorDrone, DRONELIFE, Yuneec Pilots, UAS Magazine, Frost & Sullivan, GeoConnexion, and more than 30 others.
Exhibitors were universally pleased with the positioning of the event and the results they got. Rick Bohlman, President of Go Professional Cases said, ““Drone Dealer Expo has been a really good experience because it’s focused, the sessions have been fantastic, and overall it’s really been a great show because I’m getting to talk to the resellers I really want to talk to. Even though I love our users and buyers, this show, being focused on dealers, is really what I came here for.”
The dates and location for the next Drone Dealer Expo are being sourced and will be announced at a future time. “We’re gonna need a bigger boat,” noted Bahr.
