Innovation

It is undeniable that the word "innovation" characterises this edition of the show. Already very present in major groups, mid-market companies and SMEs, innovation is further enhanced at the exhibition by the presence of 77 start-ups of Eurosatory LAB and the GENERATE, GICAT’s incubator. The number of new products unveiled for the first time at the Eurosatory trade fair was already very important in 2016 and it progressed significantly in 2018.

Security sector

Security is a full component of Eurosatory alongside the defence sector. Since 2014, the technology cluster "Security of populations and Crisis Management" brings together industrialists from the field. This year, the duality of technologies was present on many stands and a new hall 5B was opened to showcase Security sector. The Brigade of Firefighters of Paris (BSPP), CEGELEC Defence, Cyalume Technologies, Desautel, the High French Committee for Civil Defence (HCFDC), Losberger, Matisec, Sides, among many others, displayed their materials and their know-how.

The official foreign delegations from Security field represent such countries as the United States (Fire Department of the City of New York; Harvard University), the fire brigades from Brussels, Geneva, London and Tokyo, the emergency services of Israel (Maguen David Adom). All this attests the growing importance of security issues.

Multiple services were provided to participants such as visitors-exhibitors connection service (Vimeet), networking tool (Swapcard application), Strategy Consulting by international experts or exhibitor conferences for promoting exhibiting companies. In total, there were 734 participants in Business Meetings, and over 4200 connexions realised. These services allowed exhibitors to maximise their visibility and optimise their presence at the exhibition.   

Live Demonstrations

Among participants there were AENEAS, ARQUUS, Azur Drones, Daimler, FN Herstal, Isuzu, Manitou, Milrem, Protecop, SIDES, Cybergun, Streit Group. However, much attention was narrowed to Live Demonstrations performed by RAID, GIGN, Prefecture of Police (with the BRI and the BSPP), Special Forces and the Ground Forces.
