About Milipol Paris

Published on by Ghislain VACHEROT - updated on

Milipol Paris is the leading event dedicated to homeland security and safety. Over 30,000 visitors and 1,000 exhibitors are expected for the 23rd edition, which will be held on 14-17 November 2023 at Paris-Nord Villepinte Exhibition Centre.

A historic event

The event is organised every two years under the auspices of the French Ministry of Interior in partnership with several governmental bodies. Its first edition has been held in 1984, a time when the information systems were in their infancy; when the video surveillance just begun to emerge and when the RAID (French elite special forces) wasn't created yet (only a year after)! 

For almost 40 years, Milipol Paris has enjoyed a worldwide status as the leading event dedicated to the security profession. It provides the perfect forum for presenting the latest technological innovations in the area, effectively meeting the needs of the sector as a whole and also addressing current threats and dangers.

Milipol Paris owes its reputation to the consummate professionalism of its participants, its firmly international set-up (55% of exhibitors come from abroad), as well as to the quality and amount of innovative solutions on display: Discover our Products / Activities nomenclature
