Euronaval 2020: International Naval Defence Exhibition moves to a digital event


According to information released by Euronaval organizers on September 25, 2020, faced with the new health regulations due to COVID-19 crisis, the GICAN and its subsidiary SOGENA are reorienting the 2020 edition of the EURONAVAL exhibition towards a fully digital format. From 19th to 25th October 2020, exhibitors, official delegations, and visitors can now meet on the EURONAVAL-ONLINE platform.

The GICAN's Board of Directors had taken the courageous decision, necessary for the relaunch of the naval activity, to maintain the 2020 edition of the EURONAVAL exhibition. The preparations, in conjunction with the State services concerned and notably the Prefecture, have so far made it possible to envisage a successful exhibition in strict compliance with health regulations.

The GICAN's Board of Directors has taken note of the announcements made by the French Health Minister on Wednesday 23rd September: the reduction in the maximum authorized capacity for major events, from 5,000 to 1,000 people, as well as the now established resurgence of the epidemic, means that it is no longer possible to guarantee a satisfactory "face-to-face" exhibition, both for the 300 exhibitors and for the 70 official foreign delegations that had already expressed the wish to travel to Paris-Le Bourget.

In this context, the GICAN and SOGENA have decided to redirect EURONAVAL 2020 towards an entirely digital solution.

With the support of its partners, the 2020 edition of EURONAVAL will be held exclusively online, thanks to the new EURONAVAL-ONLINE platform. Previously reserved for official delegations and exhibitors unable to travel to Paris-Le Bourget, EURONAVAL-ONLINE will now be open to all visitors and exhibitors who wish to use it.

From 19th to 25th October, delegations and visitors from all over the world will be able to meet the EURONAVAL 2020 exhibitors at the EURONAVAL-ONLINE digital exhibition. They will also be able to organize their BtoB meetings by video conference on the Euronaval site and follow the themed workshops that will showcase all the expertise of the naval industry. The cycle of online web-conferences, piloted by the Foundation for Strategic Research (FRS) is also being maintained.
