** Announcing Major Sponsor
We have been successful in obtaining major support for the FUTURE DRONE
Innovation Challenge Event. The Queensland Government is supporting the event
through Advance Queensland and the Queensland Startup Events & Activities Fund
This means a number of things we had hoped we could make happen can now happen
but we will need to move the date back so we can execute on them and create a
Hackathon on Drones that really, really rocks!
Think of it as... the FUTURE DRONE Innovation Challenge is going 10 X.
To give greater value to our sponsors we are going to hold the event on the
8th, 9th & 10th of September with the venue still at the University of
Queensland, Gatton Campus.
With the addition of the QSEAF sponsorship we will be able offer bigger and
better prizes, T shirts and other cool giveaways for participants.
We will be able to offer a number of sponsored tickets to University clubs and
association that have an interest in drones, robotics, tech startups and
agriculture mining and aerospace etc. If you lead a club, not for profit
association or enthusiasts group that has a strong interest in taking part in
the Future Drone event, please let us know
Also we take great pleasure in announcing another new sponsor TJIP
TJIP™ Patents, Trade Marks & Designs™ intellectual property services can
provide assistance with all your Patent, Trade Mark and Design needs, in
Australia and elsewhere. They take pride in providing quality service and
practical advice to all their clients to achieve strong Australian patents,

the weekend and present a pitch a prize of a free consultation on Patent, Trade
