The Stampede Drone Arena Set to Return to ISE 2017!

More manufacturers, choices, and training programs set the tone for a new year of expanding business opportunities; European version of the Stampede Big Book AV to make its ISE debut!

Building on the success of its first Drone Arena at ISE 2016, Stampede, the world’s leading value added distributor of Pro AV products and system solutions, is bringing its Stampede Drone Arena back to ISE 2017 — with more vendors, more SKUs, more training classes, and more business opportunities than ever before. The Stampede Drone Arena will be based in Hall 14 at Stand 14-A100.

“The global AV industry in general, and the European AV market in particular, has experienced first-hand the exponential impact Unmanned Aerial Vehicles and Drone Video Systems are making in virtually every vertical market served by ProAV resellers, dealers, and system integrators,” Stampede President & COO Kevin Kelly said today. “In particular, we have seen major growth in real estate, commercial and residential construction, facility management, film and television production, live event production and infrastructure inspections.”

According to Kelly, Drone Video Systems (DVS) integrate videoconferencing software with drone hardware to create a single system solution that provides a 360° HD aerial perspective of any situation that can be streamed in real-time to any connected mobile device or computer, delivering the information professionals need to make smarter decisions, faster and more cost effectively. Throughout the ISE 2017 exhibition Stampede will be running demonstrations at the Drone Arena of different types of drones and unmanned vehicles for a full range of applications. Visitors to the Stampede Drone Arena can also enter to win a DJI drone which will be selected and announced on Friday, February 10, 2017 at noon.
Participating companies at this year’s Stampede Drone Arena include Yuneec, DJI, VideoBank, Virtual Air Boss, Trackimo, Agrowing, GPC, xFold, Amimon, Elistair, Droneify, Hoverfly, Christie, Vidyo, Aerialtronics, and Hitachi.
Also making its debut at this year’s arena is the first-ever edition of the Stampede European Big Book of AV featuring 394 pages that showcase products and solutions from industry leading manufacturers in every product category. In addition to the printed book users can view the online versions of the book at and they can download the mobile application from the iTunes and Android stores.

“We will have a full team of professionals who are fully versed in every one of the drones being showcased,” Kelly emphasized. “Visitors will be able to obtain a very detailed introduction to what specific models can do for their business. Representatives from Unmanned Vehicle University, our strategic partner, will also be on hand to provide visitors with an overview of all of the different type of certificate and degree programs available to them and their customers. We learned a great deal from our first experience at ISE 2016 and, as a result, we’ve taken steps to ensure that the products and information we have available at ISE 2017 will help our partners to become even more successful with this exciting and rapidly growing product category.”
