The U.S. Naval Institute and AFCEA International virtually hosted the 31st annual WEST Conference on 29-30 June 2021. Attendees heard from senior DoD and DHS officials in panel and keynote discussions while connecting with the latest platforms, leading-edge technologies and state-of-the-art networking capabilities that support the Sea Services' operations.

More than 150,000 professionals in the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard depend on the open discussions and valuable networking WEST provides. Senior military and government officials will talk directly to the operators to gain valuable feedback directly from them. Industry leaders attend because they are able to connect with decision-makers and operators over the two-day event.
