Midwest Drone Fest 2017 has been postponed. Despite an overwhelmingly positive response, we did not end up meeting our conference goals for this year. The sponsoring company is currently exploring options for 2018 based on feedback received from prospective participants.

Special thanks to the speakers, sponsors, media partners, local businesses partners, and mentors who helped us pull it all together. We couldn't have done it without you!

We look forward to seeing you in 2...018!

Wishing you all the best in your personal and professional endeavors,

The Midwest Drone Fest Team
