  • About the event

    Drone racing is the hottest new sport taking over the nation. A combination of engineering skill, pilot prowess, and all the fun of racing, it's captured the imagination of the world. As seen on NBC sports, drone racing has become a popular event around the nation. Colorado boasts one of the biggest, baddest races in the country. Hosted by Colorado Mesa University, Drones in the Desert is a weekend of hard races and draws pilots and spectators from around the country. Going into our 6th year, we cheer as our favorite pilots fight in the sky to take home the coveted trophy and generous prize purse. Spectators are treated to dazzling displays  of color, sound, and fierce competition.

    Why should you sponsor?

    Our event reaches beyond just the student body of Colorado Mesa University and has become a favorite family activity for not just the entire city but draws attendance from around the country. Our attendance democratic is largely male from 16-30 with interest in computers, sports, video games, model aircraft, and engineering as well as families who come to enjoy the majestic light show and heated racing provided all weekend. Our pilots design, build, and then race their powerful drones in a competition like no other. This is where gear heads, gamers, sports fanatics,and tech genius come together.

    Drones in the Desert has been hosting this event for 6 years and has grown beyond our grassroots capabilities. Our new cooperation with Colorado Mesa University has made our event one of the largest in the area. In order to better accommodate our increasing attendance we are reaching out to new sponsors interested in marketing to our unique demographic. Funds received go directly to the event in the form of marketing (print, online, digital billboards, media, etc) as well as pilot and spectator freebies, food, beverages, tents, seating, banners, lights (for our spectacular LED night race) and more. Our staff is all volunteer and no income is used to pay or compensate any individual. Every penny is invested 100% in growing this spectacular event.
