COVID-19 Causes Cancellation of Eurosatory 2020

: Mar 26, 2020 - : 7:14 pm

The continued spread of Covid-19 has resulted in the cancellation of yet another major  event in the defence and aviation industry calendar.

The Organizers of Eurosatory 2020, French Land and Airland Defence and Security Association  (GICAT) and its subsidiary COGES,  announced on March 26 that the event, which was to take place from June 8-12 in Paris, has been cancelled.  The next edition of the event will be held from June 13 to 17, 2022.

“The situation due to Covid-19 is deteriorating daily in France and has spread throughout the world,” the organizers said  “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, can not be met.

“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.”

Many of the aviation and defence shows around the world have been cancelled, including the Farnborough Airshow,  FIDAE, KADEX and DIMDEX  have been cancelled.  Eurasia 2020 in Turkey has been postponed to June.
