Marc Darmon announced GICAT's priorities for 2022:
- Be there for the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, by working to ensure that the public authorities take into account the French technological offer proposed by our manufacturers.
- Support our Defense and Security industry, guarantor of our sovereignty, by facilitating dialogue with banking institutions through the continuation of a constructive dialogue begun with the French Banking Federation (FBF) and by relaunching exports, which represents nearly 50% of the land BITD's turnover and contributes positively to the trade balance. A delegation from the FBF will visit Eurosatory for the first time, led by its President Maya Atig to better understand our sector and its challenges.
- Pursuing our European strategy, anticipating the new structure of the EDITB and the funding programs planned by the European Union, foremost among which is the European Defense Fund (EDF). The strong presence this year of European delegations and exhibitors will make it possible to relaunch, consolidate or create new partnerships.
- Amplify the attractiveness of our sector, which recruits from students to executives and from technicians to engineers. The last day of the show will be dedicated more particularly to them with the organization of conferences, round tables and B2B meetings with the French manufacturers who are exhibiting. The opportunity for them to discover a responsible industry, one of the most standardized and regulated, but also innovative with the key to varied offers, in all regions, for stable jobs, offering many possibilities for career development. and well paid.

Eurosatory 2022 will welcome more than 1,700 exhibitors from 62 countries, including 38% of French companies and a growing number of European companies and NATO countries. More than 250 official delegations from 88 countries are expected to discover a very wide range of products on display in all areas including cyber, civil security, medical, logistics, connectivity, robotics, etc.
