A Conversation on Business Opportunities and The Economic Impact of Drones

We are pleased to have Darryl Jenkins, author of the recent AUVSI report on the economic impact of drones, coming to speak with us about the future market for drone related businesses. His report notes that drones will help create more than 70,000 new American jobs and stimulate $13.6 billion in economic activity during the first three years following their integration into U.S. skies. Come learn from one of the most knowledgable speakers in the country about the economic opportunities being created by unmanned aerial systems. To read the full Association of Unmanned Vehicle Systems International report, visit http://www.auvsi.org/econreport .

He is a regular commentator in the national press, including CNN, CNBC, ABC News, NBC News, the Nightly Business Report and various other cable programs. His expertise in reservations systems, revenue management, operations, safety management, air traffic control, and aviation policy is widely regarded.

    it was hard to hear everything from the back of the group but otherwise it was worth it.

      I thought so too. If the group ever wants to explore another venue nearby which can serve as meeting space, my office BRINK is a possibility. Tim, let me know if you're interested; we have the room to fit a group of last nights size with chairs, a projector, etc. (https://www.facebook.c...­)

      That's a really nice offer from Patrick. One other idea I had last night was to possibly use Stetson's (right next door to Local 16). The Geo DC meetup uses the 2nd floor at Stetson's for its monthly meetings. They get the whole 2nd floor bar area so it's more private and less need to compete on volume.

    Good opportunity to meet folks and share thoughts on this fledgling industry.

    I'm at the bar now if anyone cares to join me.

    FYI, we will be on the first floor in the back beyond the bar. Parking shouldn't be too bad on a Wednesday, but you might want to get there a little early to find a spot.

    Latest TED talk explores quadcopters as "machine athletes" using algorithms to guide behavior.

    I'm working out of our DC office tomorrow so I can attend this meetup. Would anyone like to grab some dinner before the talk?

      I work about a block away, had planned on hitting their happy hour for $5 pizza and beers if you would like to join.

    • Terry K.

      I get off at 5 and will make my way over then. I'm only a mile away, so it shouldn't be to long.

    For those interested in some additional context, Darryl Jenkin's talk will reference the following PowerPoint presentation posted on our site: http://files.meetup.com/4691362/Robo-Economics-Darryl-Jenkins.pptx
