INNOVATIVE Solutions for VERTICAL Markets

MundoGEO Connect 10th Edition will take place in 2020 and was created in 2010 focusing on technologies associated with the ‘where’ concept, which means the collecting, processing, visualization, analysis and use of the geographical information in decision making.

In 2015 we created the DroneShow, which will be on its 6th Edition in 2020 aiming to gather the productive chain of the sector for professional use and show their disruptive applications, going beyond mapping, as in inspections, precision agriculture, mining, environment, safety, among
others.

Both events take place simultaneously because of the synergy from part of the attendees and exhibitors. However, the programming of the event also meets the specific demands and offers of each sector. Satisfaction research conducted with the attendees and exhibitors about the undertaking of two events on the same date and place has presented a 93% approval.

2017

From May 9th through 11th, the Frei Canena Convention Center in São Paulo hosted the main drone fair in Brazil. The DroneShow Latin America, the most important event in its segment, besides presenting market innovations and trends, also had room for direct and effective discussion with ANAC (Agency responsible for Brazilian Civil Aviation)and with the DECEA (Department of Airspace Control) in order to solve doubts and make the drone industry more qualified towards society.

During the three days of the event, the fair received about 3.100 participants visiting booths of 40 sponsors and 70 brands. The recently released ANAC regulation for the commercial use of drones was the major topic of positive results throughout the event. ANAC and DECEA officially inaugurated the event with a debate/question-solver panel on regulations and the general guidelines to legally work with drones and Brazil. Besides this debate, representatives of both organs stayed in the event to clear specific and individual doubts of the participants.

“We have reached a new maturity level. The regulated market ensures more legal security and allows the achievement of major projects using drones”, comments Emerson Granemann, the fair idealizer.

Other two debates of great interest to the fair visitors were: “general guidelines to start a drone company”; and “potential businesses using autonomous drones for delivery and private security”.

In addition to the debates, practical courses to assemble drones were taken as well as seminars with testimonials of the results of innovative projects using the embedded technology in drones for agriculture, environment and mapping. Even though the great innovations were the applications in the construction site inspections, safety and forensic.

The fair had a very qualified attendance coming from all the Brazilian states and abroad, mainly connected to the agriculture and infrastructure private sectors. “We have noticed an ascending curve in the public sector, mainly on environmental issues, public management and civil defense, and also start-ups and junior companies with the endorsement of important education institutions presenting researches applied to the sector” points out Granemann.
