The event hosted 3,500 attendees who walked through the corridors of the Frei Caneca Exposition Center in São Paulo from May 15 to 17, to get to know the products of 52 exhibitors and their 90 brands, meeting the expectations of growth from the event’s promoter.
According to Emerson Granemann, general director of MundoGEO#Connect and DroneShow, both events accomplished their missions. “The DroneShow and MundoGEO#Connect presented solutions and products aligned to the 4.0 Industry, as with all sorts of sensors embedded to satellites, manned airplanes, cars, drones and fixed stations. Virtual reality, embedded technology and intelligent software completed the fair along with service providing companies and startups. In the several activities, such as courses, lectures and debates, results were presented as well as trends and an evaluation of the sector supply chain alongside the regulatory agencies in charge of the current legislation. We were very pleased with the results achieved and in 2019 we will keep following the same trend of integrating the two worlds: geo and drones”, he evaluates.
