The Eurosatory concept

Eurosatory, the international reference for land and airland Defence and Security exhibitions

Eurosatory, the international land and airland Defence and Security exhibition, takes place every two years in order to gather the whole offer and demand of the domains. It was created in its original form in 1967 and has never stopped evolving. Attendees’ number always increased, visitors as well as exhibitors.

The unquestionable quality of this n°1 international exhibition is based on four pillars:

  • International: Eurosatory brings together worldwide exhibitors, visitors and journalists
  • Business: Eurosatory offers to exhibitors, and also visitors, various services in order to help them to develop their commercial opportunities
  • Technologic showcase: Eurosatory presents in life-size numerous equipment and systems
  • A forum for ideas: Eurosatory supports exchanges of views about the evolution of Defence and Security between all the players of the domains. Many conferences are organised all along the exhibition.

The entire technology continuum between land and airland Defence and civil and homeland Security is present. In 2016, 1/3 of the exhibiting area was dedicated to homeland Security and 300 companies presented solutions for civil Security and population’s assistance.

All products and components of the Defence and Security supply chain are exhibited at Eurosatory. The show presents the whole Defence and Security offers from basic parts to prime-contractors’ finished products and operational systems.

Prime contractors and subcontractors, buyers and suppliers, “majors” (large industrial groups) and SMEs gather at Eurosatory, which is a real meeting, exchange of views and acquisition place for all the players of Defence & Security domains.

As an International Defence and Security exhibition, Eurosatory highlights exhibitors’ visibility through life-size presentations of equipment, weapons systems and technologies and through live demonstrations. Eurosatory is undoubtedly the place where exhibitors can promote their products and where visitors can stay aware about the latest evolutions.

High-level qualified visitors (decision-makers, contract givers and key influencers…), are invited by COGES, the organiser, and benefit from a premium service.

Eurosatory is also a forum for ideas where the future of the Defence and the Security is prepared with all the players of the domains: conferences and workshops are organised (trends analysis and lessons learned). Think tanks are also present.

All these advantages allow the exhibition to place itself as a not-to-be missed event of the Defence and Security domains. Edition after edition, Eurosatory aims to go on with its development and always strengthen its unique know-how. COGES, Eurosatory organiser, makes all the necessary efforts to welcome qualified visitors and to bring together international exhibitors offering all items included in the Products, Services and Industries List.  The gathering of all the major players of the domain attracts a very large journalistic audience and, so, insures positive media impacts.
