Over the past two years, we’ve grown so accustomed to online gathering and conferences, that we have almost forgotten that professional communities also need the occasional in-person gathering. Seeing each other in real life, listening to interesting lectures, and sharing personal experiences and a laugh.

The UVID Dronetech conferences, led by Mr. Alon Unger, have been the home of the unmanned aerial vehicle community for the past nine years. Given that, we have spared no effort to hold an in-person conference this year, despite the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. And we’ve done it!

UVID 2021 will take place all day today (Wednesday) in Expo Tel Aviv’s Pavilion 10. Not via Zoom, but in person, as we’ve hoped throughout the year. Thousands are expected to attend and enjoy a highly diverse lineup.

Among the many speakers you will find Tal Ohana, Mayor of the Southern Israeli local council of Yeruham – affectionately referred to as UAV town; Chief Artillery Officer, Brig. Gen. Neri Horowitz, who will talk about UAVs as a component of Israel’s national security strategy;  Israel Aerospace Industries’ VP of Marketing, Hudi Lahav, who will discuss the need to promote the Israeli drone industry, and many more.

Still interested in signing up? You can still join us. We’ll be there until 5pm today.
