Wanted and configured by Africans to meet the security challenges of the continent, the first edition of ShieldAfrica in 2013 in Abidjan created a strong interest from institutional and private operators.
The success of the 2013 and 2014 exhibitions (République de Côte d’Ivoire) and 2015 (Gabon) give ShieldAfrica a reputation that now goes beyond the borders of Africa.
COGES Africa was created in 2015 in Abidjan to ensure the organization of this international exhibition of Security and Defence. This exhibition is now biennial and located in Abidjan.
As it was the case for the previous editions, ShieldAfrica 2017 will cover the security challenges of the continent and will address a topical issue.
- 2013 : Human trafficking
- 2014 : Maritime piracy
- 2015 : Cyberwar & Security
- 2017 : Safe Cities, component of Smart Cities
Since 2013 ShieldAfrica offers to institutional and private decision-makers the opportunity to exchange on the reality and the outline of threats to the continent’s development and to understand the global supply to create a safer Africa of tomorrow.
ShieldAfrica will become the leading exhibition in the field of Security and Defence in Africa.
