IRX 2015 PREVIEW Drone delivery scheduled for IRX

This is an archived article - we have removed images and other assets but have left the text unchanged for your reference

There’s been lots of talk around drone delivery, but visitors to Internet Retailing Expo (IRX) and eDelivery Expo (EDX) will be able to judge the much-hyped logistical technology for themselves when they see it in action at the event.

The special delivery will arrive at the conference on the morning of March 25. The Civil Aviation Authority-approved flight, operated by a qualified pilot, will fly around the NEC, overflying the lake, before making its outside halls one to five. Its cargo will be an Apple Watch, to be won by a visitor to IRX and EDX, which comes courtesy of Scurri, our partner on this enterprise.

But the drone delivery is just one of a number of exciting events to take place at IRX on March 25. The IREU 500 will also be launched that day. Find out about the listing of Europe’s leading ecommerce and multichannel retailers here.
