Experience WEST 2021 Virtually ● June 29-30, 2021

Conference Theme: What Is the Promise and Progress of Naval Integration?

Learn and network while exploring and experiencing the latest platforms, leading-edge technologies and state-of-the-art networking capabilities that support the Sea Services' operations.

The San Diego Convention Center is currently closed and expects to remain unable to host large gatherings through June 2021. As a result, AFCEA International and the U.S. Naval Institute will be transitioning the event to a virtual format for the same dates: June 29-30.

We appreciate your continued support and regret that we will be unable to meet in person as planned at the San Diego Convention Center. The virtual conference will offer an exceptional lineup of expert speakers, showcase for innovative technologies, professional development opportunities, and robust engagement and networking among military, government, industry, and academia.

Our team is working to finalize the virtual offerings for this event, and we expect to have this available in the next few weeks. Once released, our sales team will follow up with you individually (in the priority order of your original reservation) to discuss your contracted investment.

For other questions, please refer to the WEST Conference website or the Contact Us page with specific contact information for registrants, exhibitors and sponsors, or contact our Customer Service Center at (703) 631-6158, (800) 336-4583 or

Thank you for your understanding and for being a part of the WEST community.

Join us in San Diego

WEST connects the industry professionals who design and build the platforms, equipment and weapons with the designers of communications and technical systems.

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. Senior military and government officials talk directly to the operators to gain valuable feedback directly from them. Industry leaders attend because they can connect with decision makers and operators over the three-day event.
