The face for the future.

On 11 and 12 March 2016, the first World Drone Prix took place in Dubai. This international drone-racing competition brought together the world’s top pilots for two days of thrills and spills.

Wearing virtual-reality headsets, the virtuoso teams guided their flying machines around a very technical course at full speed in the dead of night. The course involved hair-pin bends, flying through phosphorescent rings, slaloming between obstacles etc. It took a lot of skill just to complete the race. Finally, it was the precocious 15-year-old, British drone pilot Luke Bannister who helped his team to first place.

GL events Middle East was in charge of installing the reception and hospitality tents for the pilots, judges and VIPs. The Group also provided the outdoor furniture, the floor covering and the audiovisual equipment.
The teams at GL events Middle East worked constantly for two weeks to install the facilities that contributed to making  the World Drone Prix the biggest drone competition in the world!
