Drone Deployment: Hiring a Pilot is Not Enough

Drone Deployment: Hiring a Pilot is Not Enough



Unmanned Aerial Vehicles – UAVs and in this case specifically drones – are increasingly being used in commercial applications, including Tower Inspections and infrastructure integrity status checks such as bridges and pipelines. For those adopting UAVs for such tasks, it’s not enough to purchase drones and hire pilots. This talk by industry veteran Paul Baur of Gap Wireless will outline the less visible aspects of drone deployment: the regulatory and training requirements that need to happen to ensure successful and compliant drone forays.

4 main reasons why businesses exhibit at trade shows

4 main reasons why businesses exhibit at trade shows

Trade shows have always been a great way to connect with new prospects and generate sales.

They set the foundations for niche industries, like ours, to grow and bloom into something special. And despite the price tag many trade shows carry, the opportunities business owners have when attending or exhibiting offer incredible benefits.

Below we highlight four main benefits why businesses exhibit and attend trade shows. Take a look and let us know what you think.

In-Person Exclusivity

Building rapport in-person with your prospects at a special event carries a lot of emotional currency to the “branding well” and also provides a sense of exclusivity. Leads are likely to purchase from brands they recognize and trust and trade shows provide companies with that exclusive opportunity to build strong professional bridges with target audiences.


Knowledge is power. Trade shows typically feature keynote speakers who talk about hot industry topics and upcoming trends, presenting unique conversations and rare opportunities that one may not find anywhere else. All business owners in attendance who choose to capitalize on these unique trade show insights have an advantage over others who do not.

Media Coverage

Reputable trade shows are media magnets and most especially when new product launches are involved. When businesses exhibit or attend trade shows they’ll be able to benefit (passively or aggressively) from the hyper-content creator environment. Mainstream media, tech bloggers, and the trade show community are always on the lookout for their next ‘cool find’ to tweet and report.


Did you know that 80% of sales are made on the fifth or twelfth contact? What’s more interesting is that the average sales professional only makes two attempts per prospect. Sales is definitely a main benefit and reason why businesses exhibit and attend trade shows. With hundreds and thousands of industry fans under one roof, business owners can connect and lead more prospects in attendance a step closer to a sale.


Trade shows are popular and sell out fast for multiple reasons and the points above highlight our main four. Despite brand awareness and sales being a conventional bottom line, having fun and enjoying a positive experience is equally as important. If you can think of another key benefit that isn’t on our list, feel free to send us a message and let us know. Until next post!

[Rumours] Leaked Android images show new Nexus home screen & launcher

[Rumours] Leaked Android images show new Nexus home screen & launcher


New leaked images from Android Police show new home screen and launcher design for upcoming Nexus devices.

The screenshot shows that the app drawer is no longer assessed by a button on the favourites tray.

Instead, users can either pull up the app drawer by sliding a frosted favourites tray or by tapping an arrow icon just above it.

According to 9 to 5 Google, “Five app icons now fit on the tray and the drawer itself has been slightly redesigned with a button on top to search apps. The white app drawer also shows the status bar icons in black, like many other Google apps are moving towards today. Google also appears to be returning to app folder design first seen in the N Developer Preview 2.”

The screenshots also show that the new design has a locked date widget that is right aligned that replaced the original Google Search bar from the home screen.

Since the leaked images are from a device not running the new Google Assistant, the old Search bar appears when tapping the multi-colored ‘G’ icon to the left.

The good folks at Android Police believe this redesign is part of Google’s strategy in efforts to get users to leverage Google Assistant, a conversational virtual assistant similar to Siri.
