More and more companies build up a business to take advantages of what drones offer. LeWeb is bringing the main actors of this new rising industry to share their experience on that subject.

Is a law about to make building this kind of business really difficult?
Companies’ owners and innovators such as Eric Cheng from DJI or Christian Sanz from Skycatch will go through theses subjects and share their visions.
