UK Drone Show Announces Top Sponsors: Panasonic and The Resource Group

After being inundated with corporate sponsorship offers, the UK Drone Show has announced its main partners as The Resource Group and Panasonic. The unmanned aviation exhibition is the first industry event of its kind in the UK and is set to run at The NEC in Birmingham on 5-6 December 2015.

The key sponsors for the highly anticipated event have been revealed as Panasonic, leaders in electronic technology and photography with the Lumix brand of cameras, and the UK’s number one UAV training company The Resource Group. Panasonic will provide large television screens for the drone racing feature, while staff from The Resource Group will be in attendance at The Drone Show to give expert industry advice to visitors and exhibitors.

Oliver O’Brien, the show’s Project Manager said, “We’re thrilled to be working with such highly esteemed businesses for our debut show. These global names will support many different aspects of the event, and it’s great to have them on board. We’re really happy that so many large companies have recognised the growth and the potential in the UAV sector.”

As the first industry event of its kind, The UK Drone Show is expecting a huge influx of visitors, including aviation professionals and businesses looking to explore opportunities for expansion into the industry. In addition to hundreds of exhibitors and software suppliers, the event will feature specialist guest speakers, product demonstrations, career prospects and will also present DroneGP Live – a drone racing and agility championship.

Head of Imaging for Panasonic UK, Barnaby Sykes said, “We’re really excited to be a main sponsor of the UK Drone Show 2015. The drone industry has really changed in the last 12 months, and aerial video recording has become a huge part of that. We're the first camera manufacturer to have unlimited 4K recording with the GH4R, which has opened up the drone industry to pro AV fans and movie makers alike. We've also partnered with Jessop's for the show, giving customers the chance to purchase Lumix G products with added incentives only available at the show.”
