Drones create fun, sticky, sharable, and useful content. Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) as flying cameras have so many indoor and outdoor applications for DMOs:
- Convention, facility, meeting space fly-through views
- General destination marketing and tourism promotion
- Website design
- Collaboration for UGC purposes
Everybody’s onboard with enabling visitors to enjoy previously unimaginable points of view from a bird’s eye position.
If you get requests from drone owners, have a drone, or want to buy one, be sure know the FAA rules and regulations, including prohibited spaces such as National Parks, airports, and stadiums.
