Event Description and Objective

TechNet Asia-Pacific, now in its 28th year, is co-sponsored by AFCEA International and AFCEA Hawaii. It is the largest event in the Pacific Rim focusing on regional defense and cybersecurity issues and will focus this year on “Building Coalitions Through Cyber”. Keynote speakers, panel moderators and panelists will discuss defense policies and challenges in the Asia-Pacific region and their relevance to both Industry and Government.  Industry exhibitors will demonstrate products and solutions to meet the Services' requirements and needs. Registration for panel sessions and exhibits is free to all registrants. A nominal fee is required for breakfasts and lunches.

AFCEA International, established in 1946, is a non-profit organization serving its members by providing a forum for the ethical exchange of information, and dedicated to increasing knowledge through the exploration of issues relevant to its members in information technology, communications and electronics for the defense, homeland security and intelligence communities.


Event Attendance Guidelines for Government and Military Employees

 

Due to sequestration and our desire to help enable Government and Military Employee participation, AFCEA International has updated their event attendance guidelines. It is the opinion of AFCEA International that in accordance with 5 CFR 2635.203(b)(4), all Government employees (including military personnel) may attend this event at no cost and may accept meals and refreshments available to all Government employees at a nominal charge. This opinion is based on the fact that the conference is open to all Federal employees with an interest in the subject matter.

 

Employees who wish to attend this conference should seek approval from their supervisor or ethics counselor and ensure that free attendance and nominal meal charges at this conference have been approved.
