By any measure Milipol 2013 in Paris, France, was a great success for all involved. Over 900 exhibitors had a chance to show off the very best in new ballistic protection products. Our Body Armor News reporters were exhausted but very pleased with the interviews and new product reviews they came away with at this year’s show.

The international flavor was really on display with representatives of over 53 countries on hand for the show along with a contingent from the European Commission. Mr. Manuel Valls, French Minister of Interior, presided over the opening ceremonies, a sign of the importance and appreciation France puts on hosting this illustrious event.

Attendees and exhibitors were able to choose between touring the exhibits, taking part in roundtable discussions and withdrawing to more private areas for business meetings. Those attending this year’s Milipol exhibition went home fatigued but happy with the results.
