Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the UAV SHOW postpones its traditional trade show in October 2021 but creates highlights throughout the year to be as close as possible to drone news. Originally scheduled for September 15, 16 and 17, 2020 in Bordeaux, the UAV show will not celebrate its 10 years this year. In agreement with its private and institutional partners and numerous exhibitors affected by the crisis, Bordeaux Technowest and its partner Congrès et Expositions de Bordeaux needed to postpone this edition in favor of an event where the exchange and the creation of opportunities will remain in the image of past events. However, it was unthinkable for the organizers to remain absent from the landscape of the French and international drone community one additional year without being able to make the actors of the sector interact with each other or enrich and create substantive debates. This is why, the UAV Show will be divided into 3 highlights throughout of the year : // On September 16, 2020, UAV Day, see the last innovations at the CESA Drones test center, near Bordeaux and on-line. // In the spring of 2021, Air Mobility will be honored at the show Electric Road. // On October 19, 20 and 21, 2021, the UAV Show will celebrate its 10 years and will take place at the Palais 2 l’Atlantique of the Bordeaux Exhibition Center to strengthen its show status leader in Europe.


An event organized by Congrès et Expositions de Bordeaux

Craftsman of the ephemeral

The event is in a way, the DNA of CEB, whose activity is centered around 2 big poles:

These two poles represent more than 300 events hosted every year on our various sites.

CEB handles the operation and the maintenance of big sites of the business tourism of Bordeaux.

  • Exhibitions Centre (84 000 m² indoor)
  • Convention Centre (3 amphitheaters with a total capacity of 2 000 persons, a space of exhibition of 3 000 m²)
  • Hangar 14 (5 400 m²)

(CEB has been renewed to manage these 3 sites for a duration of 15 years, until December 31st, 2027**).

  • Cité Mondiale Convention Center (1 200 places)

Key figures

With 110 employees and more than 300 events hosted on average per year, the activity of CEB constitutes an important economic lever for the territory. It generated in 2013 a flow of 960 204 persons and a turnover of about 32,5 million of euros.
