ASELSAN to exhibit wide range of defense products in France

Turkish defense giant ASELSAN will participate in Eurosatory, one of Europe's largest defense industry exhibitions, which will be held in Paris, the capital of France, on June 17-21.

The company, which will host its visitors at stand H-26 in Hall 6, will hold meetings with military delegations and visitors from various countries.

ASELSAN, which will take part in the Turkish Pavilion together with esteemed institutions of the defense sector, will exhibit its wide product range at the five-day event. Particularly, the company will unveil the KORKUT Air Defense Weapon System 8x8 vehicle-mounted integrated version at this year’s fair.


Eurosatory, held every two years at the Paris-Nord Villepinte Exhibition Center, has been a significant event since its inception in 1967. Organized in cooperation with the French Ministry of Defence and the organizing company COGES, Eurosatory serves as a platform for fostering business development opportunities, increasing visibility, and networking.

The event offers various services, including tools for facilitating business contacts, organizing meetings, and providing business consultancy services to participating organizations.

In 2022, the fair saw participation from 1,743 companies hailing from 62 countries. Among them, more than 30 Turkish companies showcased their products. The event attracted a total of 62,000 visitors from 150 countries.

In the previous edition in 2018, 1,802 institutions and organizations from 63 countries set up stands at the fair. The event drew a significant crowd of 98,700 individuals from five continents. Moreover, the fair welcomed 227 official delegations from 94 countries and 4 international organizations, along with VIP participants from 34 countries. Notably, 39 country pavilions were established.

In terms of international participation in 2018, the U.S. led with 152 participating institutions and organizations. Germany, the UK, Israel, and Türkiye followed closely with 118, 85, 72, and 61 institutions and organizations respectively.

This year, more than 2,000 companies are slated to participate in Eurosatory,

Meanwhile, France has most recently canceled the participation of Israeli arms companies in the event. This decision comes in the wake of the recent Israeli army bombing of a refugee camp in Rafah. Prior to this move, approximately 74 Israeli industrial companies were expected to attend Eurosatory.
