�Drones have exploded onto the radar of virtually every industry,� said Carmel King, executive vice president of NewBay Media�s Broadcast & Video Group. �They raise fascinating business possibilities as well as new considerations involving regulation, security, privacy and safety.�

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; and in-depth paid training sessions for UAV users produced in partnership with Stampede, the charter Gold Sponsor of the National Drone Show.
