It was announced yesterday evening that the biggest European trade show of defence technology, Eurosatory 2020, has been cancelled. “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,” the organizers said in their official statement. Eurosatory takes place near Paris, France, on a biannual base.
“Many international and French exhibitors registered for the Eurosatory trade fair scheduled from June 8 to 12, 2020 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 can not be met,” the organizers continued. “Therefore, Eurosatory team invites you to the next edition of the exhibition that will be held from June 13 to 17, 2022.”
