Drones. Everyone is talking about it, but what is their added value today? How do we see the use of drones progressing in a city of tomorrow? Which solutions are already out there?

After councilor Claude Marinower of the City of Antwerp kicking off the first reversed pitching session of the year, you will not only get an overview of the current drone landscape but also be able to join two calls for drone applications.

And of course, there will be room for networking, exchanging and innovating with peers.
