What It's About:

Interest in drones has exploded over the last few years, but as with any new technology, it can be challenging to know the most appropriate uses and ways to maximize value. Equally important: commercial use of drones falls under the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) jurisdiction, yet most users are not aware of their responsibilities and legal liabilities. During this session, the panel of experts will cut through the confusing and conflicting information out there and provide you with best practices for drone use in marketing and sales, jobsite management and land development. Learn the key guidelines you need to be aware of to ensure safe operations and FAA compliance while minimizing liability.

What You'll Learn:

  • Understand the basic requirements and regulations for operating drones in commercial settings.
  • Learn about the different ways drone technology can be used in your business, including land development, sales and marketing, jobsite inspection and safety and more.
