AOC Electronic Warfare Europe will not take place in 2020

As a result of the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, Electronic Warfare (EW) Europe, organised by Clarion Events on behalf of the Association of Old Crows (AOC), scheduled for 16-18 November, will no longer take place in 2020.

The ongoing requirement for a two-week quarantine period following international travel, and potential changes to the UK government’s position on re-opening conferences and exhibitions has contributed to the decision of Clarion and the AOC to postpone EW Europe until 25-27 May 2021.

The next edition will be held in Seville, Spain, co-located with Clarion’s military training and simulation event, IT²EC.


  • “With current travel and quarantine restrictions across the globe which will restrict certain countries from participation, it has been decided that we would be unable to hold EW Europe 2020 in a meaningful way. We believe the best thing for the event and its attendees is to reconvene in Seville for a world-class EW Europe 2021.”
    Shelley Forst
    Executive Director, AOC
  • “We are terribly disappointed to have to postpone EW Europe, but the health and safety of our attendees, speakers, and partners must take priority. We are already working with the AOC to ensure that the 2021 edition will bring the EW community together for an event that is worth waiting for.”
    Tracy Bebbington
    Event Director, Clarion Defence & Security

The next edition of AOC EW Europe will take place on 25-27 May 2021 at FIBES Exhibition and Conference Centre. After a popular co-location in 2019, the show will again be held alongisde IT²EC, with attendees able to access both events.

What's next?

Clarion and the AOC are looking at digital opportunities which will enable the electronic warfare community to convene virtually to discuss developments in the EW, Electromagnetic Manoeuvre, Cyber Electromagnetic Activities and Information Operations sector.

Clarion Events is one of the largest exhibition organisers in the world and holds the safety of all event attendees as its highest priority. As such the company is looking ahead to how physical distancing measures can be incorporated into the planning of all our events in the future and is contributing to broader government and event industry initiatives to support this.
