The Drone Club has won the MTN/Mahindra Comviva Most Innovative Exhibitor Award at the Tech+ conference. The conference was held at Eko Hotels and Suites in Lagos. The award was received by DJ Tee and James Amuta, whose companies are pioneer members of the Club.
The Drone Club, which represents an aggregation of several interests in drone flying, beat several other exhibitors to the award for the most outstanding innovative product on display at the two-day Expo.
Exhibitions covered products and services in various areas such as healthcare and wellbeing, automobile, entertainment, education, computing, Smart Homes, Wearables, Security, gaming, 3D Printing, and displays, among others.
Speaking on the award, a drone pilot and sole operator of the The Drone Guy company, James Amuta, said it came as a surprise given that the exhibitions was the first outing for the club. He attributed it to the efforts of the co-pilots who came together to form a strong team.
“We feel absolutely amazed. We are surprised that we actually won. The expo was awesome, but our own technology won. It is a collaborative effort, and it shows that the more people can collaborate, the better we can get. It shows that we are building a very strong team because this is our first outing as a Club and we came here and bagged this award. It is an emotional moment for most of us,” he said.
