Talks and tips about today's gadget craze
After a fun talk about drone technology from last year's GOAB, we're flying higher this year with a bigger and more exciting featured event - the first ever Drones On A Beach track (DOAB).
Led by special guest Zsolt Vaszary of Dronethusiast.com, one of the world's premiere aerial cinematographers, DOAB aims to bring together drone specialists, enthusiasts, filmmakers, and yes, even gadget geeks for a weekend of talks, workshops, screenings, and demos. Grab your DOAB Track tickets now so you won't miss this first-of-a-kind event in our friendly skies!
Zsolt is a seasoned serial entrepreneur with several successful startups under his belt. He joined his first startup in 1998 where he established the first digital media agency in Hungary which was acquired by Austrian digital media group Red-Stars. After spending 10 award rich years in digital and classical advertising working for major brands like Pepsi, EoN Energy and Music Television, he re-joined the startup ecosystem by co-founding WebCam Laboratory. WCL is webcam based digital learning software acquired by Intel Education and pre-installed on millions of Intel based learning platforms world wide. After exiting WCL, Zsolt worked as a consultant for Venture Capital firms and that is how he got involved with multicopter/drone technology. Being infected with this exciting technology, he went as far as setting up a professional aerial filmography gig working for Hollywood productions called Aircamfilm and a website catering to drone enthusiasts called Dronethusiast.com (which is one of the top drone news sites in the world). He enjoys traveling, working out and flying one of his quadcopters in as many locations as possible.
