Originally devoted to defence, Eurosatory has gradually expanded into the security market. While the contexts of use differ greatly between Defence & Security, the products are definitely on the same technological continuum.
Eurosatory has taken these developments on board and now invites new categories of defence and security product buyers. The markets of the future are without any shadows of doubt Southeast Asia and Latin America.
The Air-land to the exhibition heart
ALAT (French Army Light Aviation) has chosen Eurosatory for its 60th anniversary celebration, thus boosting the air-land aspect of the fair. Aviation delegations from many countries will be invited to the event.
On the discussion side, Eurosatory is developing its conferences. In particular it will be holding the SIMDEF seminar on “Simulation, a means to preserve operational potential” organized by ADIS, the European Club for Countertrade & Offset (ECCO) symposium on trade with Turkey and the Land Operations Forum.
This coming Eurosatory will be a great international affair with 2/3 of the exhibitors from foreign countries (51 countries have registered) including new ones such as Japan and Argentina. The venue for all products of the land and air-land industry, Eurosatory will mirror the latest trends in 2014. It may be too early to say what they all will be, but big changes in the robotics industry are already on the way.
