Eurosatory provides a time-effective opportunity to meet the entire land and airland defence and security industries, to discover the latest technological innovations in the defence and security fields and to help exhibitors and visitors to expand their professional network, prospective new markets and generate business opportunities.
What will be the focus of Eurosatory 2018?

Eurosatory is an exhibition where industrial manufacturers and research organisations present their new products, but also some extremely innovative technologies with a very high technology readiness level offering prospects of medium and short-term opportunities for production synergies. No less than 500 new products or services were identified at the 2016 Eurosatory exhibition.
Eurosatory’s visitors have various functions and profiles and diversified needs. They are high-level authorities, operational personnel, experts and buyers, international press. The number of decision-makers and institutional users grows every year.
Eurosatory is a great opportunity to develop a strong international network of clients and to generate business opportunities. One of the first priorities of the organiser for this year remains to highlight multiple services both for exhibitors and visitors as one-to-one business meetings, strategy consulting, visitors – exhibitors connection service, exhibitor conferences. They will allow high level and strongly motivated visitors to meet exhibitors representing each line of product list, to develop professional contacts from all over the globe and to get immediately available solutions.
This edition of Eurosatory remains to be a fast-expanding forum for ideas and reflection. Over 80 conferences are expected with more than 200 international speakers and 3,000 attendees. They will study defence and security topics, present innovative products and make economic and strategic analyses. As in previous years, Eurosatory 2018 will invite highly qualified and motivated professional visitors from the five continents. The audience will comprise international decision-makers and institutional users.
In 2016 issue of Eurosatory the main trends were mobility, homeland security, UGVs, aviation, lethal and non-lethal weapons, military technologies in aid of populations and refugees, protection of people, physical and digital infrastructure. Eurosatory 2018 will continue to develop these topics and to present new challenging topics for a discussion.

Organised with the participation of French and foreign Operations Officers, exhibitors from the defence and security domains (from prime contractors to subcontractors), state representatives, experts and VIPs these meetings also rely on a conference cycle dedicated to operations feedback and power projections in the future.
What innovations can participants expect at the Show?
Eurosatory is the event where the industries from the defence and security domains exhibit their products and technical expertise, where customised answers to international requirements are presented, where all the experts of the defence and security worlds are present and where innovative products are on show.
Eurosatory redesigns its organisation in 2018, a third hall – Hall 5B – will be opened. This new hall will allow to expand the indoor exhibiting area and to enlarge number of presented products. It will be focused on security topics. This redesign will affect the entire exhibition including the reorganisation of foreign pavilions.
The exhibition will get a new live demonstration area for the presentation of innovative products and technologies. It will increase a visibility for the participating exhibitors and their products and thus secure increasing visits to their stands. The new live demonstration area will be located closer to the exhibition to facilitate the movement of exhibitors and visitors.
Eurosatory, the blockbuster of the global defence and security industry, covers multiple innovative technology sectors. In previous years, there were such sectors as the CRBNe, Infrastructure and critical facilities protection, Embedded Electronic, Training & Simulation, Measurements & Testing Centres, UAVs & UGVs. In 2018, participants will discover a new technology cluster: Intelligence.
Eurosatory consolidates its rank as the world leader in land and airland defence and security. A wide range of products and systems will be presented and worldwide high-level attendees will come to the exhibition. The next edition of this ‘must-visit’ event will be held from 11 to 15 June 2018. It already seems to be promising and spectacular. Find more information about Eurosatory on www.eurosatory.com.
