Leading drone event on a growth trajectory

Record number of participants / Forum provides latest information / Flight demonstrations every day / Start-ups showcase innovations


Karlsruhe, Hamburg 22 August 2016 | The industry is booming and INTERAERIAL SOLUTIONS (IAS), which is being held as part of INTERGEO in Hamburg from 11 to 13 October 2016, is further emphasising its place as the leading event in the European UAS market for civil use. IAS consists of a trade fair, presentation forum and flight zone. This offers visitors an all-round view of the subject of UAS with more than 100 partners in total, including all the major manufacturers from Europe and the United States.

More than 40 presentations look at practical applications, innovative projects and key legal and safety-related aspects concerning this still-young industry.

The umbrella association UAV DACH provides in-depth insight into the standards that are to be expected in the field of UAS, including current legal principles and future standards. The presentation by Norman Hallermann from Weimar University shows just how diverse and efficient the use of drones can be. He explains UAS applications as part of building inspections. Harry Denz from the Hamburg aviation authority provides exciting insight into the delicate issue of drone flight permits.

If you are going to talk about UAS, you have to show it in action. The flight zone in the outside area of the trade fair provides a platform for the world’s leading manufacturers of drones for civil use to showcase their innovations in action ten times a day.

Start-ups from the field of UAS should mark 12 October 2016 in their diaries. On the second day of the trade fair, INTERAERIAL SOLUTIONS is offering a special start-up session. Hosted by Hamburg-based business consultancy CHCON, which specialises in UAS applications, six start-ups have a unique opportunity to pitch their business ideas to the drone community and potential investors. At the end of the event, a panel of five independent judges will pick a winner, with the prize including a free booth at INTERAERIAL SOLUTIONS 2017 in Berlin and a video clip for use on social networks. However, all six companies can only win – from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on 12 October 2016 they will have the opportunity to find partners and investors, or even just to be seen! Since the application window has only just opened, two of the six places are still available.
