The world of UAV is more exciting than ever, and event attendees were inspired to push the boundaries in the future. “I was there on the first day when everyone was setting up,” shared John Batte, Abbott Technologies Sales Associate. “It was wild to see some of these UAVs being brought into the convention hall.”
