ADS in association with the Department for International Trade Defence & Security Organisation (DIT DSO) is proud to announce the 7th Public Security Exhibition, being held at the British Ambassador’s Residence in Paris, is now sold out.

France is a very open and highly competitive market, with opportunities in most sectors, especially for small and medium-sized businesses. The UK is seen as a centre of excellence for defence and public security equipment, making it an attractive market that can offer major business opportunities to UK suppliers.


We anticipate approximately 170 visitors. Visitors have been invited by the British Embassy and will include:

Gendarmerie, police, tactical and counter terror units, military security, special forces, intelligence and covert agencies, border police, as well as officials responsible for the protection of critical national infrastructure. Representatives from technical, scientific, IT and R&D departments of these organisations will be among the guests. Distributors and commercial agents specialising in this field will also be present for companies seeking to identify in-market representation.

Exhibiting companies may also nominate specific visitors, who they would also like to invite to attend the event.
