ShieldAfrica 2019

International Security and Defence Exhibition

Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire

Compétences SARL created ShieldAfrica in Côte d'Ivoire in 2013 and organised the first three Security and Defence exhibitions. From the outset, this event was designed to provide the continent’s public and private decision-makers with solutions from all over the world, tailored to Africa’s Security and Defence requirements.

In 2015, COGES Africa partnered up with "Compétences" to help develop ShieldAfrica by providing the expertise and know-how of Eurosatory, the leading land and air-land Defence and Security exhibition. With the benefit of this globally recognised expertise, ShieldAfrica has become the benchmark exhibition on the African continent.

In 2017, 133 exhibitors represented all areas of Security and Defence: Cyber, Surveillance, Detection, Mobility (Vehicles, Boats and Semirigids), Information and communication systems, Training and Simulation, Personal Protective Equipment, Non-lethal weapons, UAVs-UGVs, Textile and Manpower support.

Today, ShieldAfrica is the benchmark exhibition in Africa where public and private sector Security and Defence players meet global industrial manufacturers who come to offer innovative and tried and tested solutions. This is the exhibition at which experts and operational agents present their work to African leaders from all over the continent, while informing them of changing threats and the appropriate solutions to them.

ShieldAfrica 2019 theme: Broders Protection and Control:

A strong Africa in a globalized world requires open, secured and controlled border through modern technologies and proven equipment.

Land, sea and air borders are not sealed barriers. They must be dynamic areas of exchange, permitting movement of people and goods. These activities must respect the States’ sovereignty, while implementing controls on goods and people in accordance with applicable laws. Cross-border regulation is a major issue in national and international Security. In Africa, it requires modern, efficient Customs administrations and dynamic regional structures for cooperation between African nations.

ShieldAfrica 2019 theme: “Secured and regulated Land, Sea and Air Borders, conditions for the development of Africa
