Drones Provide Extensive Analytics
Drones help in collecting advanced crowd analytics. The UAVs fitted with sensors are able to perform quick and accurate area mapping, analyse footfall, crowd distribution, duration of stays and revisit patterns at events, therefore proving to be an incredibly cost effective and portable solution for gathering real-time event analytics that will aid in planning.
The LBASense Mobile App is an example of an application that is used in conjunction with sensors attached to drones to perform such analytics.
Enhanced Event Experiences = Insert Drones Into the Picture!
Above all, drones enhance the event experiences by providing out of this world video content and live streaming opportunities that connect and engage the attendees unlike any other recent technologies. Here are a few examples of engaging drone activity at the events:

Drone makers DJI have introduced new goggles that when connected to their drones give users unparalleled aerial views without their feet ever having to leave the ground.
Visual Shows: Drones are great for entertainment, particularly visual shows. Many events have used drones for aerial shows, including night-time shows with lights timed to music. They always draw a crowd and create shareable moments. Attendees are known to take videos of the drones performing at the events, with their smartphones and sharing them on Facebook, Instagram, and more.
Live Streaming: Live streaming events is so popular and using drones to capture the video for a live stream adds so much more to the entire event experience. Drones can move around and make viewers feel like they are actually part of the event.
Tip: You could live stream artists when they are performing, give a backstage tour, and more.
Drones are cost-effective and cheaper as compared to the other competing technologies. What makes these little flying elements the future of event technology? Engagement! Drones create an attendee-centric event experience and that is why with drones the events industry will always thrive!
