Until recently, the opportunity to have a celebrity attend an event, attach themselves to a name-brand or endorse a certain product or idea was untouchable. The thought of paying a person to promote a product was seen as something only Fortune 500 companies could afford. Social media has changed all that with brands and businesses utilizing celebrity influencers to connect directly with their demographics and increase sales and profits.
Western Conference and Exposition - WEST 2015
The Western Conference and Exposition (WEST 2015) is the premier Sea Services event focused on operations in the Asia-Pacific region. Senior leaders, including the three Sea Service Chiefs, will address "Lower Budgets and Higher Demands: How Do the Sea Services Strike the Right Balance?" The timing of WEST 2015 gives active duty U.S. and allied military, government, industry and academia decision-makers the opportunity to engage on multiple levels to discuss the maritime strategy within the current budget. Industry will showcase and discuss emerging systems, platforms, technologies and networks that will impact all areas of current and future Sea Service operations. Now in its 25th year, WEST 2015 is co-sponsored by AFCEA International and the U.S. Naval Institute, both non-profit, non-lobbying membership associations.
Registration is free for military and government.
