Turkish arms maker CANiK is gearing up to participate in Eurosatory, one of Europe's premier defense industry expos, slated to take place in Paris, France, from June 17 to June 21.

The company will welcome visitors at booth B-95 in Hall 6, engaging in discussions with military and diplomatic representatives from various nations during the event.

At the Turkish Pavilion, alongside esteemed institutions in the defense sector, CANiK will unveil its array of products, including the VENOM LR, TRAKON, CANiK M2 QCB, CANiK M2 F, CANiK M3, TTI COMBAT, and SFx RIVAL-s, throughout the five-day exhibition.


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.
