The 48th-annual, 2013 Navy League Sea-Air-Space Exposition kicked off at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, Md. with an official opening ceremony April 8.

Under the theme, “Maritime Crossroads: Strategies for Action,” Sea-Air-Space, the largest maritime exposition in the U.S., showcases demonstrations highlighting the latest maritime-related technologies and solutions and provides an opportunity for Navy policy and operational leadership to interact with industry representatives to discuss and debate common interests and concerns.

“Sea-Air-Space is an absolutely wonderful opportunity for everyone to get together and talk about issues of importance,” said Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Jonathan Greenert. “It’s about talking about our challenges, our opportunities and I think most importantly, our solutions. It’s where industry can partner with the military, with the Department of Defense to find real, tangible solutions.”

During the first day, the sea services strategic rebalancing of the Asia-Pacific region was highlighted during various roundtable discussions and floor presentations.

“The theme of this conference, Maritime Crossroads: Strategies for Action, is perfect,” said Greenert. “It leads you into asking where, and the most important place is the Asia-Pacific. That is the number one area for our future and it’s really about rebalancing in a host of ways- force structure, capabilities, homeporting, and intellectual capacity. We’re moving 60 percent of our ships to the Western Pacific by the end of this decade. It’s really about greater partnerships, greater interoperability with our allies and greater exercises- all in the Asia-Pacific.”

This year’s Sea-Air-Space features over 190 exhibitors, including 15 military commands as well as 12,000 registrants and representatives of 48 different countries. Also present are top officials from the Department of Defense, Homeland Security and Congress.

Sea-Air-Space is open to active duty and reserve military, federal civilian employees, congressional members and staff, retired U.S. military and Navy League Members. There is no charge to attend the three-day exposition and professional seminars.
