May 20, 2020 – Ottawa – ON
USC-STC today announces our decision to move our signature Unmanned Canada Conference and Exhibition online to hold it remotely in 2020. We are keeping our scheduled dates – with all events taking place the week of November 2-6.
In this COVID-19 era, we wanted to ensure we could provide the same great experience, keynote speakers, informative speaker tracks and the opportunity to allow our sponsors and exhibitors to tell you about their products and services.
We’ve figured it out! #UC20Remote is coming.
We’re going to be holding UnmannedCanada.20 online on our virtual conference platform, with the ability to access the conference content in real-time as well as making all content available online post conference.
“Taking UnmannedCanada.20 online will equal or surpass our established tradition of exceptional conference experience and content,” says Conference Chair Jordan Cicoria. “The virtual venue allows us to bring experts from around the globe together in a way never before possible.”
USC-STC’s Conference Committee made the decision after carefully weighing the benefits of offering remote access during the #COVID19 era. Those benefits overwhelmingly outweighed the risks of an in-person event.
“We can assure attendees this will be a memorable and high-quality event at price points suitable for every budget,” says USC-STC Chair Michael Cohen. “I look forward to welcoming familiar faces – and new ones – for a spectacular online gathering this November.”
In addition, we’re extending our Call for Speakers deadline to June 26th to allow more international participants to sign up to get the widest range of thought provoking and educational content to our audience.
