Drones – For Good and Evil

Apr 27 @ 8:30 - Apr 27 all-day
Junglinster Longwave Transmitter
CLT-Centre d'Emission Station Radio 6141 Junglinster Luxembourg


The question of “Good or Evil” drones has been on the agenda for some time now and AMCHAM, in cooperation with BCE and SECURITYMADEIN.LU, will try to give some answers during a half day event on April 27th at the heart of the historical Junglinster Longwave Transmitter (CLT-Centre d’Emission, Station Radio, 6141 Junglinster, Luxembourg).

There will also be a Cybersecurity Breakfast and an event organized by the Marketing committee.

This event will give drone users, fans (and lovers!) the opportunity to learn more about the world of drones.

Passionate private organizations and associations will also present some of their practical usage and experiences with drones.

The drone race will truly be the highlight of the event.

We offer you a fun and informative day!
Participants are also invited to bring their personal drone and try the race or just do some testing.

Join us for all or part of this first time ever “celebration of all things drones”!
