Unmanned Canada.20 (#UC20Remote) is our 18th Annual National Conference and Exhibition and is shaping up to be our most ambitious event to date!

Due to recent events around COVID-19, we’ve re-imagined our premiere Conference and Exhibition as a multi-day online Virtual Conference. This allows us to offer the the same great content and networking options in a Virtual format. We’re excited about our impressive lineup of speakers, topics, and exhibitors. We are confident you’ll find great value in attending, learning and networking at Canada’s largest and most important conference of  “all things unmanned and remotely piloted”.
