- 2018 Report
“We have participated in the ADS Show since its first edition. This Trade Show has established itself as a benchmark exhibition for support activities. Holding this Show in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region and most specifically at the Air Base 106 is in perfect harmony with the ecosystem of the region. Last February, we even organized a start-up challenge dedicated to support and we are strengthening our activities related to MCO / MRO on our site in Mérignac, as part of the transformation of
our company on the “Steering our future“ theme. With a theme dedicated specifically to support, the ADS Show gives us many opportunities for presentations and exchanges with experts and practitioners in the sector, whether they are customers/users or decision makers, innovators or manufacturers. Support products and services have experienced - and will continue to experience - strong development, thanks to the impetus given by the verticalisation of MCO contracts, the systematic use of digital technologies (Big Data, Artificial Intelligence ...) and the implementation of open innovative
approaches. The ADS Show 2020 is an opportunity for Dassault Aviation to feature its involvement in the region and the strides made in the Support field. We therefore intend to present a representative array of our products and services, focused
on providing value to the users of civil and military aircraft designed and manufactured by our Company.”
“The French Defence Procurement Agency (DGA) has been a partner of the ADS Show since its creation in 2012. The dynamic and static demonstrations put in place at each edition of the Show by the DGA are an opportunity to meet and bring together the players of the MCO field beyond the circle of the Ministry of Armed Forces. The innovation-based activities proposed by SMEs and start-ups supported by the DGA foster exchanges with all the professionals in the sector.
The MCO is an essential component of project management that the DGA provides on the armament programs of the Ministry of Armed Forces. For the DGA, participating in the ADS SHOW 2020 is as obvious and important as in previous editions.”
“We are proud to be a partner of this event, which has become a not-to-be-missed event in the industry! It is an opportunity for us to engage with MCO professionals and share the extent of our know-how with major contractors and operators from the French and foreign forces.”

Dear Partners, Dear Participants,
The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in an unprecedented economic crisis for the aeronautics sector. Its devastating effects on business are prompting companies to take drastic measures.
Despite our commitment to maintain the ADS SHOW in order to support the recovery of the aerospace ecosystem, and to kick off discussions on how to make the industry more resilient, the severity of the crisis is constraining us to reconsider our position. After consulting our historical partners, both public and private, it now appears necessary to give the aeronautics sector the time to manage the current situation, before we gather again to work on the future.
We are therefore deeply sorry to announce that the 2020 edition of ADS SHOW will not take place as planned, and is postponed to September 2022.
We thank all our partners (private and public) for their involvement in this project. In particular, we would like to thank the French Armed Forces for their investment and their support in the preparation of ADS SHOW.
Despite this heavy blow, we wish to maintain a strong link with you until 2022, by keeping bringing together the stakeholders of the aerospace and Defence MRO ecosystems. We are working on a new project called "ADS Club", that will allow us to keep in touch with you, to organise physical or virtual meetings during the next 2 years, and to support the sector?s recovery.
We wish you all the best.
THE ORGANIZING COMMITTEE
