Managing behind the scenes some events for the Defence ecosystem

In collaboration with the ministries of the Armed Forces, the Economat provides a wide range of services by coordinating and managing the operational aspects of public events, seminars, conferences, and exercises both in France and abroad.

This involves assistance in choosing event locations, transportation, catering services, accommodation, security, interpretation, and support for speakers and participants, among others.

This activity works behind the scenes to organize major events for the Defense ecosystem, such as the National Day “With Our Wounded” in support of the Army, a public exhibition “La Fabrique Défense” on behalf of the Directorate General of International Relations and Strategy of the Ministry of the Armed Forces (DGRIS), and the presentation of the Institute of Advanced Studies in National Defense (IHEDN) on the operational capabilities of the Army.

As part of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, EdA actively participates in supporting the Armed Forces mobilized for the security of this global event. This exceptional operation includes the establishment of dedicated accommodation and catering camps, as well as the expansion of accommodation capacities at existing military bases to accommodate an unprecedented number of personnel in the Paris region.
