The premier naval conference and exposition on the West Coast, WEST is now approaching its 28th 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.
