Eurosatory 2020 is cancelled

Posted 27 March 2020 · Add Comment

The organisers of the biennial international defence and security exhibition, Eurosatory - which was due to take place in Paris 8th-12th June - have announced that due to the deteriorating Covid-19 situation in France and around the world, they have regretfully taken the decision to cancel this year's event.

In a statement they said that the conditions for preparing and running the exhibition, which would protect the health and safety of the 100,000 expected participants, visitors, exhibitors and organisers, cannot be met.

Many international and French exhibitors registered for the Eurosatory trade fair are no longer able to prepare their participation and configure or transport the necessary equipment. It also appears that the very large number of foreign visitors expected to participate in the fair can no longer plan their trip to France.

The postponement of the exhibition to a later date has been studied but the conditions for success cannot be met.

The current situation no longer makes Eurosatory possible in 2020. It is with immense disappointment that GICAT (French Land and Airland Defence and Security Association) and its subsidiary COGES are forced to cancel the fair planned for June.

All the participants and partners will be contacted in order to best manage the consequences of this cancellation.

The next edition of the exhibition that will be held from 13th to 17th June 2022.
