Networking Events

Networking Reception in the Expo

Join us for a beer and wine happy hour from 4:30 to 6 p.m. on Thursday, July 20, 2017. The Expo hall will be abuzz with drones and conversation. Grab a drink, circulate among the booths and your colleagues, and see some fascinating new UAS products and services. This event is designed to be a fun and relaxing way to round up day two at ASCEND and connect further with attendees and exhibitors. Complimentary for all full conference attendees.


Women in Drones Networking Breakfast

All women conference attendees are invited to the Women in Drones Networking Breakfast from 8:30am to 9:45 a.m. on Friday, July 21, 2017. Meet women influencers who are leading businesses in the drone market, advocating for policy developments to enhance the UAS industry, and increasing the pace of growth of this exciting technology. Participate in robust roundtable discussion and enjoy breakfast, coffee, juices and sweet treats.


Casual Happy Hours

On each evening of ASCEND, we’d like to encourage attendees to gather at the Courtyard by Marriott Portland Downtown/Convention Center to enjoy the BLVD Kitchen & Bar, where you'll find comfortable indoor and outdoor seating. July evenings are ideal in Portland, so this is sure to be a great hub for attendees to meet up, enjoy cocktails, and continue discussions initiated during the day. The Courtyard is the official hotel for ASCEND; if you'd like to book a room in the ASCEND guest room block, visit their website or call 800-321-2211.
