The premier naval conference and exposition on the West Coast, WEST is now in its 27th year of bringing military and industry leaders together. Co-sponsored by AFCEA International and the U.S. Naval Institute, WEST is the foremost event in which the makers of platforms and the designers of technologies can network, discuss and demonstrate their solutions in a single locale. To complete their missions successfully, more than 150,000 professionals in the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard who live in the San Diego area depend on the open discussions and valuable networking WEST provides.
More than the operators benefit from participating in WEST. The event enables senior military and government officials to gain valuable feedback directly from sea service warfighters. Industry leaders learn about military requirements and connect with decision makers as well as operators in a professional environment away from the office.
AFCEA International and the U. S. Naval Institute are nonprofit, non-lobbying membership organizations.
WEST is the premier Sea Services event focused on operations in the Asia-Pacific region - showcasing emerging systems, platforms, technologies and networks that will impact all areas of current and future Sea Service operations. Senior military leaders and industry representatives will showcase and discuss emerging technologies and equipment that will impact all areas of future Sea Service operations.
WEST is uniquely timed to take place immediately after the defense budget roll out.
