The Navy League of the United States is hosting the 47th Annual Sea-Air-Space Exposition April 16-18, at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, Md.

The Sea-Air-Space Exposition is the country’s largest educational and professional maritime exposition and brings together active duty, Reserve and retired military personnel, U.S. defense industrial base and private-sector companies.

“We’re excited about this year’s expo and the overall growth and direction of the exposition,” said Kevin Traver, director of Corporate Affairs and Development for Navy League.

More than 150 interactive exhibits, showcasing the latest in maritime, defense and energy technology, will be featured this year. The event will offer attendees the chance network and attend seminars, and it will provide a professional development platform for educating Sailors of all ranks on the latest developments in naval warfare.

“Our Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard attendees are going to learn about the latest issues, programs and equipment their service is focused on,” said Traver. “They will meet the people responsible for developing and planning the way ahead for our maritime services.”

The exposition is free with advance registration and is open to active duty, Reserve and retired U.S. military personnel, and U.S. government employees. Commanding officers may issue orders for attendance at government expense.
