More than 200 people attended the Fraser Coast Drones & Innovation Showcase in June this year, making the event a huge success. The Showcase was a strategic priority in Fraser Coast Regional Council’s Drone Strategy, which was developed for Council by AEC and Aviation Projects in 2018.
The Drones Strategy provides direction for Council on developing the Fraser Coast Region as one of Australia’s drone centres of excellence. Key strategic aims of the Strategy include:
Having consistent and constructive policy alignment across Council
Increasing community awareness of the Fraser Coast Drone Strategy
Creating the infrastructure needed to drive industry growth
Providing incentivisation, grants and promotion programs
Having a robust collaboration and advocacy plan
The recent Showcase allowed Council to promote the benefits of drone-related business and recreational use to the local community as well as to potential investors.
AEC and Aviation Projects are pleased to have supported Fraser Coast Regional Council on this exciting and innovative project.
