Now in its 25th year, WEST is the premier Sea Services event focused on operations in the Asia-Pacific region, showcasing emerging systems, platforms, technologies and networks that will impact all areas of current future Sea Services operations. Senior leaders will address the theme “Lower Budgets and Higher Demands: How Do the Sea Services Strike the Right Balance?” Much of the content will provide attendees all-important Continuing Education (CEs) and contribute to the maintaining of their DoD 8570.01-M credentials.Throughout the course of the three-day event, Send Word Now representatives will conduct hands-on demonstrations of its award-winning and DIACAP-certified Alerting Service, which provides rapid, secure and multimodal mass notification during critical incidents.
Send Word Now will also showcase its revolutionary mobile app, SWN Direct
, which features SWN Express Messenger, a flexible, cost-effective alternative for SMS (text messaging), and SWN Lockbox for secure file transfer and storage. The app’s groundbreaking Audience Visibility feature, which enables users to see which of their intended message recipients are actually “on-net” prior to sending alerts, will be highlighted as well.
“As the largest event on the West Cost for the Sea Services and the contractors who support them, WEST 2015 is a prime opportunity for senior military staff, speakers, attendees and vendors to engage in meaningful conversations focused on regional issues, vital infrastructure and technological improvements,” said Lorin Bristow, Senior Vice President, Marketing, for Send Word Now. “We look forward to participating in the annual conference and exposition, where we expect to see several of our clients and forge many new client relationships throughout the Asia-Pacific region.”
