Next Edition of Commercial UAV Expo Europe to take place with Amsterdam Drone Week and EASA in Amsterdam 18-20 January 2022

Organizers of Commercial UAV Expo Europe have announced that the next edition of the event will take place with Amsterdam Drone Week (ADW) and EASA High Level Conference at RAI Amsterdam 18-20 January 2022. Previously, the events were scheduled to take place together in December 2021, but the organizers have decided— in close consultation with partners Amsterdam Drone Week and EASA— to delay the event until early 2022 due to the impact of COVID-19 on travel and the event industry. This date will offer partners, speakers, visitors, and delegates more certainty to travel to Amsterdam and thus bring the worldwide UAM/UAS community together. Future editions will revert to the typical December time frame.

“The benefit of co-locating the three events is in bringing the whole drone ecosystem together in one place where professionals can learn, connect and drive the industry forward,” said Lee Corkhill, Group Event Director at Diversified Communications, organizer of Commercial UAV Expo Europe. “Commercial UAV Expo Europe is the leading international trade show and conference in Europe for the commercial drone market delivering sUAS manufacturers and end-users. Amsterdam Drone Week focuses on Urban Air Mobility and the role of cities. The EASA High Level Conference focuses on the stakeholders involved in UTM and regulatory issues.” During ADW 2021, the EASA High Level Conference will take place on 18 and 19 January and the Commercial UAV Expo Europe will be held on 19 and 20 January.

ADW will offer a hybrid option in January 2022, meaning content from, the ADW mainstage will be broadcasted daily, including matchmaking and the online speed networking sessions. In 2020, Amsterdam Drone Week organized a successful online event. “Although it was a great success given the circumstances, we prefer to see the fast-growing industry around drones and unmanned aircraft back in Amsterdam in person,” says Paul Riemens, CEO RAI Amsterdam. “Bringing people together is part of the DNA of RAI Amsterdam.”

“Innovative Air Mobility is an area of intense activity for EASA. We are steadily putting all the rules in place for these operations and working on certification for these entirely new types of aircraft,” said EASA Executive Director Patrick Ky. “The High Level Conference at ADW is an important platform for discussions with a range of stakeholders on these developments.”
