Why Exhibit & Sponsor at WEST 2024

Meet the operators – outside Washington D.C. – who use your systems, platforms, technologies and networks and will explain their current needs.

WEST is the premier Sea Services event focused on operations in the Asia-Pacific region. The conference is a showcase of emerging systems, platforms, technologies and networks that will impact all areas of current and future Sea Service operations. Senior military and government (or Department of Defense) officials will discuss the challenges they face and how industry can help address them.

  • WEST is uniquely timed to take place immediately after the defense budget roll out.
  • Opportunity to hear from the Sea Service Chiefs - the Chief of Naval Operations, the Marine Corps Commandant and the Coast Guard Commandant.
  • WEST is THE PLACE for the makers of platforms and the designers of technologies to discuss and demonstrate their solutions in a single locale. Industry leaders network and learn about military requirements–not just the what, but the why--and connect with decision makers as well as operators in a professional environment away from the office and Beltway.
  • WEST has an operational focus and takes place in a very large concentration of operational Navy and Marine personnel.
  • Strategy and Budget focus has shifted to the Pacific, and WEST is the largest and most prestigious maritime conference on the West Coast.
