BZ Media Commissions Original Research on Drone Distribution Channel

Drone Analyst Research and Advisors to conduct original research, present findings at inaugural Drone Dealer Expo

BZ Media LLC announced today that it was commissioning Drone Analyst Research and Advisors to conduct original research on the drone distribution channel, and that the firm’s CEO and Founder Colin Snow will share and present results for the first time in a keynote session at Drone Dealer Expo.

Drone Dealer Expo, a 3-day summit focused on the Channel, is bringing together Drone manufacturers, distributors, dealers, integrators, and value-added resellers to exchange ideas and techniques, and learn about new products and selling opportunities. The first Drone Dealer Expo ( will take place April 11-13, 2016 at the Florida Hotel and Conference Center, in Orlando, Florida.

BZ Media CEO Ted Bahr commented, “the drone industry is exploding and as it matures more and more product will be moved through reseller distribution channels to reach the ultimate buyer. These channels are being created and developed now and yet there is very little research on how they are actually operating. This research will dig in and the results will serve as a good base to begin serving this network with a conference and expo.”

Drone Dealer Expo will allow manufacturers to meet with both current and new dealers and distributors to discuss carrying their products, product roadmaps, and service and support options. Newly unfolding drone distribution tactics and channels will be highlighted. More than 50 sessions, panels, and case studies will focus on drone distribution and market trends, merchandising and e-commerce techniques, best practices for selling, supporting and servicing drone buyers, selling to vertical markets, marketing and promotion, and the rapidly changing legal environment.

“We are excited to explore and offer insights on the varied and growing reseller distribution channels in the drone industry,” said Colin Snow. “As the drone industry grows and evolves, it’s important for all to identify and understand opportunities and relationships in the supply chain,” he added.

More than 400 dealers, distributors, manufacturers and other members of the Channel are expected to attend the first Drone Dealer Expo. The Call for Speakers for the technical conference is open and may be found here:
