An exciting new partnership is bringing the excitement of drone racing and sophisticated drone technology down to Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Expert Drones™, a subsidiary of Dronepire Inc. that specializes in customized drone immersive experiences, has partnered with Marriott International on the Drone Dash drone racing event at the newly renovated W Fort Lauderdale on November 28, 2017.
W Hotels’ “Drone Dash” is an immersive drone race taking place both inside and outside the property that brings the action-packed world of drone racing to the hotel space. Guests at the newly reimagined hotel will experience first-hand the excitement of drones racing around the property as they highlight the dramatic renovation and beachside views from a perspective unlike ever before. The entire interactive experience brought to you by the Expert Drones national race team, made up of some of the best drone pilots in the world.
“Drone technology is being utilized in a variety of different ways, but never before like this,” said Brett Velicovich, Managing Partner of Expert Drones. “We’re excited to be working with innovators like W Hotels to give a voice to drones in the hotel space. This is further proof of Marriott International and W Hotels’ commitment to empowering their guests with emerging and innovative technologies.”
If you have been paying attention to the news, then you know that FPV drone racing has grown into a serious business and is even considered to be a professional sport. Professional drone racers can reach speeds upwards of 90mph and fly in and out of various obstacles through the use of high definition cameras. Drone racing competitions, like the 2018 Allianz World Championship, and the 2018 Swatch DRL Tryouts, are attracting aspiring pilots to compete for crazy amounts of money while raking in millions of views.
W Hotels’ Drone Dash gives guests a taste of this at safe speeds, allowing pilots the ability to race both indoors and outdoors creating a visual spectacle for guests in a controlled environment. W Hotels’ Drone Dash immersive experience has already created a buzz with some major industry players.
