U.S. International Pavilion will help exhibitors gain greater access to region’s buyers and decision-makers
Paris, France and Waldwick, N.J. / November 4, 2015 — Looking to capitalize on regional economic growth,
modernization spending and changing defense and security requirements, U.S. companies competing for air,
land and sea contracts in Europe will showcase innovative technologies, equipment and services at MILIPOL,
November 17-20 in Paris. The biennial business event is the most comprehensive of its type in the region, and
is expected to draw more than 25,000 trade visitors from more than 150 countries.

The U.S. presence at MILIPOL Paris, featuring 70 industry leading companies such as Honeywell, FLIR
Systems and Smith & Wesson, is organized by Kallman Worldwide, Inc., the official U.S. Representative of the
show, in coordination with numerous government agencies, including the U.S. Commercial Service. The
centerpiece of the national effort is the nearly 880 sqm (gross) U.S. International Pavilion, a destination for
buyers looking for an efficient way to meet a critical mass of U.S. suppliers, and an on-site business hub for
U.S. exhibitors looking to maximize their exposure and impact at the event.

“When U.S. companies commit to exhibit at MILIPOL Paris, they’re saying they believe in the power of this
event to attract real business prospects and customers,” said Kallman Worldwide President and CEO, Tom
Kallman. “As the organizer of the U.S International Pavilion, our team is proud to help our exhibitors capitalize
on this influential international business opportunity to grow their share of the regional marketplace, and further
extend our nation’s global defense and security leadership.”

The 34 U.S. companies participating in the U.S. International Pavilion range from publicly traded stalwarts to
privately held innovators. They represent a cross-section of leading American suppliers looking for new export
opportunities and to strengthen regional business relationships.

Highlights of the U.S. presence include the PepperBall® next-generation, less-lethal system. Called “VKS”, for
Variable Kinetic Speed”, the new system is a breakthrough in versatility, providing multi-mission capability and
variable payloads in a single M4 styled platform. The company recently announced its first major deliveries to
customers in the Middle East and Asia.

In addition to organizing the national Pavilion, Kallman Worldwide is promoting all U.S. exhibitors with its “Ask
America First” on-site advocacy campaign. The message will be placed prominently around the U.S.
International Pavilion, integrated into hospitality and VIP events during the show, and promoted in social media
(follow on Twitter @kallmanEWC).

“The United States is the world's biggest defense and security industry supplier, but that’s no guarantee that
buyers will look to work with U.S. companies over others,” said Kallman. “As the organizer of the U.S.
presence at MILIPOL Paris since 2005, we have a responsibility to advocate not only for our exhibitors, but for
our nation in this highly competitive global marketplace. We want every visitor to ‘Ask America First’ at
MILIPOL Paris 2015.”

In addition to representing MILIPOL Paris, Kallman Worldwide has represented MILIPOL Qatar since 2004,
and in 2017 will add MILIPOL Asia-Pacific, incorporating Global Security Asia in Singapore, to its portfolio of
defense and security events.
