Unmanned Systems replacing physical conference with virtual event
Unmanned Systems Canada/Systèmes Télécommandés Canada today announced that its 18th Annual Unmanned Canada Conference and Exhibition will be presented virtually this year. Originally scheduled to take place in Calgary, Alberta, from November 3 to 5, 2020, the new online conference will hold the same dates.
“Taking [the conference] online will equal or surpass our established tradition of exceptional conference experience and content,” said Jordan Cicoria, chair of this year’s Unmanned Systems Canada (USC-STC) conference. “The virtual venue allows us to bring experts from around the globe together in a way never before possible.”
The organization’s conference committee also points to other benefits of its planned virtual conference like options to access conference materials post-event and multiple ticket choices during a difficult revenue year for many.
“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.”
USC-STC is also extending its Call for Speakers deadline to June 26 to allow for more international participants to participate.
