About the World of Drones and Robotics Congress (WoDaRC)

Hosted in Australia and supported by the State Government of Queensland, the Congress is now in its 5th year and brings together delegates from the drone, robotics, autonomous systems, defence, application development, AI, government, academic, emergency services and industry sectors.

This year WoDaRC will be presented as a hybrid event, providing both in-person and virtual participation options for exhibitors, delegates and presenters to network, share opportunities in the market and company offerings, and discuss some of the industry’s emerging topics. The congress is a great opportunity to reach commercial and government users of drones and robotics technology and services throughout Australia and across the Pacific.

The congress program features prominent Australian and international speakers across a number of themes including defence industries and sovereign supply, working on the edge of possibilities within emergency operations, drone safety, and technology for good. You can find the full program on the official congress website.



WoDaRC features a physical and virtual exhibition of the latest drone and robotics technology and services businesses. This year, exhibitors include Australian and international suppliers and organisations, including the Australian Defence Force, Australian Air Force Cadets, the Queensland University of Technology, Civil Aviation Safety Authority, World of Drones Global and more.
