NewBay Media proudly announces the 2016 National Drone Show, an exciting conference and expo featuring Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) video capture technology, to be held in the nation’s capital, Dec. 7–8, 2016 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. Co-located with NewBay Media’s Government Video Expo, the National Drone Show brings thousands of video professionals together for two days of cutting-edge discussions and demos of the latest UAV and video capture, management and delivery technologies and techniques.


Drones have exploded onto the radar of virtually every industry. They raise fascinating business possibilities as well as new considerations involving regulation, security, privacy, and safety. This is also a marketplace of vast potential; by some estimates, sales of unmanned aerial systems are expected to exceed $8 billion by 2018, with the commercial sector exceeding $5 billion. We’re pleased to bring the discussion about drones to the heart of the nation’s capital.


The National Drone Show will feature a drone flying cage; free-to-attend sessions on the exhibit floor covering the latest drone technologies and regulatory topics; the D.C. Drone Film Festival; and in-depth training sessions for UAV users.
