WEST, a naval conference and exposition on the West Coast, is now in its 33rd year of bringing military and industry leaders together. Co-sponsored by AFCEA International and the U.S. Naval Institute, WEST creates an environment in which the makers of platforms and the designers of technologies can network, discuss, and demonstrate their solutions.
One recurring highlight of WEST is the chance to hear from the Sea Service Chiefs – the Chief of Naval Operations, the Marine Corps Commandant, and the Coast Guard Commandant. In addition to the main program, WEST offers three Engagement Theaters: Marine, General, and Information Warfare. These smaller, more intimate venues allow military, government, and industry professionals to drill deeper into specific topics and issues.
