Paul Riemens, RAI Amsterdam CEO, announced the launch of Amsterdam Drone Week and it's partners at Commercial UAV Expo last week.
For Riemens it’s an obvious step for RAI Amsterdam to initiate a platform to bring UAS parties together. 'The drone industry is developing rapidly and we see opportunities to contribute to this by facilitating discussion, innovation and contacts,' explains Riemens. 'There will be new European regulations in place for drones in 2019 and that will give the drone industry a huge boost. Technology wise, lots is already possible. The coming years will show what companies and organisations want and are allowed to do with these new technologies. Think of privacy issues or safety. With its focus on education, innovation and technology, the city of Amsterdam is a perfect basis to bring all these aspects together. On top of that, as RAI Amsterdam, we have a huge network that we bring along.'
