Unmanned Systems Canada/Systèmes Télécommandés Canada (USC-STC) recently announced that its 18th annual Unmanned Canada Conference and Exhibition will be presented virtually this year, allowing for an even greater variety of keynotes and content from Canadian and international experts – with none of the concerns associated with COVID-19.
USC-STC’s online conference, UC20Remote, will take place at the same time planned for its physical conference – early November 2020.
“Taking UnmannedCanada.20 online will equal or surpass our established tradition of exceptional conference experience and content,” said conference chair Jordan Cicoria. “The virtual venue allows us to bring experts from around the globe together in a way never before possible.”
USC-STC’s conference committee made the decision after carefully weighing the benefits of offering a virtual conference experience during the COVID-19 era. Those benefits include:
- The ability to provide an equivalent, high-quality conference experience with our usual high standard of keynotes and speakers;
- New option to access conference proceedings and materials post-event;
- Multiple ticket choices during a year when many companies expect to see budgets for travel and conference slashed;
- Value for sponsors and exhibitors with the virtual exhibition floor.
The UC20Remote conference — as with other annual USC-STC events — will gather key providers, thought leaders, and regulators from the unmanned industry around the globe.
“We can assure attendees this will be a memorable and high-quality event at price points suitable for every budget,” said USC-STC chair Michael Cohen. “I look forward to welcoming familiar faces — and new ones — for a spectacular online gathering this November.”
