Rhianna Lakin, Independent Drone Journalist

The Silicon Valley Drone Show (Small Unmanned Systems Business Exposition) May 4th & 5th Field Day 6th, is happy to announce guest speaker Rhianna Lakin will be speaking on the use of drones and social media to report on live news events and engage massive global audiences. Rhianna most recently covered the events at the Standing Rock Reservation where multiple drones were shot down while trying to cover a questionable easement under current litigation.  As a hobbyist she’s created some amazing videography work by drone from a erupting volcano in Asia, to the recent massive snowfall in Portland Oregon.

Registration opens soon to save your seat for the 2017 sUSB Expo, and keep an eye out for our expanding list of innovative speakers for 2017.

Sponsorship opportunities for 2017 are still available.
