What a crowd! Over 300 keen drone enthusiasts are soaking up the latest on drone innovation at our very first Drone Industry Forum happening right now at the Dalby Showgrounds Pavilion. 2015 Telstra Businesswoman of the Year Dr Catherine Ball kicked off proceedings, with plenty of great speakers still to go. If you missed out on attending the Forum, there's still plenty of drone action happening throughout this week with the UAV Challenge set to get underway from tomorrow at the Dalby Aero Club! ~ Economic Development Team #DDIF #dronetechnology
