Dronisos, a leading drone light show specialist, has announced that it will be providing drone shows to Expo 2020 Dubai, which takes place from 1 October 2021 to 31 March 2022. The company’s drone show system was selected by the event organisers after a global tender and will be used to provide drone shows throughout the World Expo.
Dronisos, which is a tech startup from Bordeaux, will use hundreds of drones, both inside the Al Wasl Plaza’s 360-degree projection dome, as well as outdoors in the Dubai desert.
The greatest show on Earth
Expo 2020 Dubai positions itself as the greatest show on Earth, running for 182 days with special events throughout and a dedicated pavilion for each of the 195 participating countries, as well as pavilions exploring each of the three key themes: sustainability, mobility and opportunity. It is expected that 25 million people will visit the event over the course of six months.
This is also an opportunity for Dronisos to expand in the Middle East, and it is now opening a Dubai office to meet demand from customers in the region. This adds to its existing offices in Bordeaux, Orlando and Bangalore.
From this new technical and commercial base in Dubai, the company will be able to work with customers in the UAE as well as other countries in the Gulf, including Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Oman.
“Today, over 80% of Dronisos’ revenue is generated abroad, with more than half of that coming from the Middle East. The new office in Dubai is a strategic choice to help Dronisos secure a more global presence,” says Jean-Dominique Lauwereins, President, Dronisos.
Last year, Dronisos announced that it had entered into a strategic partnership with Delta Drone, with the aim of integrating Delta Drone’s professional ATMOS solution into Dronisos’s commercial offering.
