Pulling off the seemingly impossible
The Verge Aero drone team pulled off the seemingly impossible at this year’s Experiential Marketing Summit (EMS) at the MGM Grand Las Vegas – flying a drone show high above the ballroom right next to Harry Reid International Airport.
Taking off from the MGM Grand parking garage – situated just a hundred yards from the airport tarmac – presented the Verge Aero team with a unique challenge. While a focus on safety and precision execution are always part of standard operating procedures, the tight confines of the flight envelope in an urban environment required extreme precision and attention to detail.
“The drone show at EMS was one of the highlights of the event – many attendees had never seen a drone light show before so there were a lot of surprised faces, smiles and phones in the air capturing the moment,” says Jon McLoughlin, Director, Event Sales at Experiential Marketing Summit. “Verge Aero was awesome to work with. Their team was very professional and fully prepared to execute the show in a safe and secure way, while also handling all necessary approvals and paperwork needed to make the show happen.”
“It was also super cool to see the EMS logo in the air as well. Brand visibility doesn’t get much bigger than that! The possibilities are endless.”
