The Euronaval 2018 Exhibition Intensifies Its Focus On The Future And Celebrates Its 50th Anniversary

06/12/2018

Today Euronaval is the largest international exhibition of naval defence and maritime security and safety. Organised every two years in Paris-Le Bourget, this exhibition brings together decision makers from navies and the international naval industry. With more than 23,000 visitors, 400 exhibitors in a 15,000 sqm space and 129 official delegations from 64 countries (2016 figures), Euronaval is the benchmark exhibition in the naval defence industry. This year Euronaval is celebrating its 50th anniversary and continues its development. With a new, more condensed format covering 4 days and an international conference organised the day before the opening as a prelude, EURONAVAL wishes to respond more effectively to exhibitor and visitor expectations.

 

For the pre-opening of the exhibition, on Monday 22nd October, an international conference will be held at the Maison de la Chimie in Paris. It will bring together highlevel speakers from industry, government ministries, navies and think tanks, to discuss the main topics of current and prospective naval defence. The conference, organised in partnership with the FRS (Foundation for Strategic Research) will focus particularly on the maritime ambitions of powerful states, technological innovations, capability gaps and digitalisation of maritime space.

 

As a privileged international meeting point for contractors, industrialists, experts and decision makers in navies from the five continents, the exhibition is organising a series of themed workshops to allow industrial entrepreneurs and institutional organisations to discuss major technological and operational issues.

 

 

For 50 years EURONAVAL has been the privileged witness to innovation and technological breakthroughs in the naval defence industry. At each of its 26 editions, a growing number of exhibitors have presented their latest innovations. For its 50th anniversary, Euronaval will present a retrospective exhibition of the main innovations that have marked naval defence and maritime safety.

 

 

Entitled "50 years of naval innovations", this retrospective will allow visitors to relive half a century of this industrial and technological adventure, still in constant progression. To promote the most promising start-ups in the sector, and to increase their visibility, Euronaval will be inaugurating a 200 sqm area entirely devoted to them. Christened SEAnnovation, it will host around thirty start-ups selected from a call for applications.

 

 

The organisers received more than fifty applications from French and foreign startups businesses, representing the diversity of activities in the sector. The objective was to cover all aspects of the naval defence sector, encompassing vehicles of the future, predictive maintenance, communication, connectivity, cybersecurity and artificial intelligence for navies. SEAnnovation will be set up close to the Ministry of the Armed Forces and the GICAN (French Marine Industry Group) stands. The space will host round tables and pitches, punctuating the 4 days of exhibition. For the selected start-ups, this is an amazing opportunity to gain recognition with contractors in the naval industry, meet officers from navies from all over the world and build new partnerships.

 

The naval industrial sector is in good shape and benefits from a number of advantages. It is however having difficulty recruiting and training the collaborators it requires. To promote the excellence of French industry and to recruit future young talent, the Euronaval exhibition is opening a “Trade Ship”. This area will bring together professionals from different industries who will present and promote ten or so emblematic professions.

 

The Trade Vessel is mobilising industrialists, training organisations, regions and the French State to propose a space that aims to encourage young people to take an interest in naval trades. In partnership with educational authorities and academies, schools and educational establishments, the Euronaval exhibition will invite young students and school children to visit the “trade ship”.
