The Euronaval trade show has been taking place in Paris/Le Bourget since its creation in 1968. This year it will celebrate its 25th edition from the 17th to 21st October. This unique international event, organised every even-numbered year in the French capital, is the meeting place for the latest technologies in naval defence and maritime safety and security.

 

Of the 110 nations that purchase naval equipment, more than 70 accepted the French government’s invitation in 2014 to come and discover what is on offer in the six most relevant activity sectors: naval defence, maritime environment, transport and infrastructures, maritime safety and security, services and research & engineering.

 

 

With the presence of a number of prestigious guests including several Defence Ministers, Ambassadors, Army and Navy Chiefs of Staff, delegations of Coastguards and Defence Attachés, Euronaval is the most important international event for contractors and influencers in a market valued at more than 40 billion Euros, solely for naval defence construction. This French biennial event is an industrial and technological showcase of excellence in the domains of industry and technology, and is a unique opportunity for discussions on questions of maritime security and geopolitics.

 

 

At seven months from the opening of Euronaval’s 25th edition, the organisers have already seen a 20% increase in the number of new companies registering for the exhibition, despite a strained economic context. Among the newcomers are ASELSAN (Turkey), AUSTAL (Australia), ELBIT SYSTEMS LT (Israël), ISRAËLSHIPYARDS (Israël), LIBERVIT (France), PALFINGER MARINE (Austria), SHOX (Canada)...

 

 The French Navy, renowned for its operational expertise and the quality of its vessels and equipment will once again provide a significant contribution to the prestige and content of the Exhibition, inviting Offical Delegations to attend in situ demonstrations of materials on sea-proven ships.

 

 

One of the main trends starting to emerge for this 2016 edition is the keen interest shown by maritime nations for purchasing coastal surveillance vessels, such as off-shore patrol vessels, intermediate size corvettes or frigates. The other major trend is the determination of oif a number of countries to develop their submarine fleets, with acquisition projects in progress in Australia, Sweden, Poland, Norway and Indonesia.

 

 

Among the new products presented at the exhibition, Euronaval will be displaying commando vessels with their weapons and equipment, surface drones and submarines, aircraft, AUSV (autonomous unmanned surface vehicules). New concepts, in particular those related to stealth operations, will also be on show. With seven months to go before Euronaval opens its doors, the exhibition promises to be a content-packed event, installed in a 15,000 square metre space for 5 days, at the gateway to the French capital.
