Zimbabwe’s 1st ever conference on drone technology is scheduled for the 10-11th of November 2021 at the Celebration Centre in Harare.

Organised by the Drones For Good Network in conjunction with leading local drone industry players, the Drone & UAV Conference is set to bring together experts from the local & international drone community to discuss the latest trends in drone technology & innovation.

Drone technology has been applied to over 100 recreational, industrial and commercial use cases and has ultimately made hazardous work safer for people. The technology has also reduced the amount of labour needed for certain tasks, cut down the time taken to complete work, replaced more costly methods and gives people access into previously inaccessible locations.

Drone technology is becoming more prevalent in industries like agriculture, security, policing, border control, mining, energy, urban planning, telecommunications, emergency response, logistics, education, healthcare, media production, wildlife conservation, sport, construction, real estate and insurance.

“Drone technology is set to become one of the biggest game changers in the fourth industrial revolution,” said Tawanda Chihambakwe, the MD of Zimbabwe Flying Labs. He went on to mention that “Zimbabwe should not get left behind by the rest of the world in leveraging the technology to boost its various industries”

There are countless employment opportunities spawned by the advent of the drone industry which Zimbabwe needs to realize and tap into. Being a Commercial Drone Pilot is a profession that was unheard of a few years ago; but is now one of the fastest growing careers brought by drone technology.
