US Navy N2/N6 involvement in this conference does not imply endorsement of AFCEA International or the Naval Intelligence Professionals by the United States Government.
"N2/N6 is always looking for opportunities to collaborate with Industry in ways that will realize our top priority - providing Naval and Joint warfighters with the Assured Command and Control, Battlespace Awareness, and Integrated Fires capabilities they need to fight and win in the Information Age. Our annual Industry Day event is the single most important venue for this kind of engagement and collaboration, and my leadership team and I are very much looking forward to this year's assembly. We're aggressively reviewing our challenges, updating our goals and objectives, and preparing to share them directly with those who can help. And with CNO's commitment to delivering this year's keynote, I think this will be the best Industry Day yet!"

VADM Branch speaks to the value of the Industry Day on the AFCEA Answers radio program:
Welcome to Navy Information Dominance Industry Day 2014!
On May 7, 2014, AFCEA Intelligence and the Naval Intelligence Professionals, in collaboration with the Office of the Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Information Dominance, will present the fifth in a series of classified forums examining the state of Information Dominance in the U.S. Navy.
If you attended any of the previous sold-out Navy Information Dominance Industry Days, you know these events provide invaluable business intelligence in the context of the Navy’s Strategy for Achieving Information Dominance. The speaker lineup for the next Industry Day will include ADM Jonathan W. Greenert, USN, Chief of Naval Operations; conference host VADM Ted Branch, USN, Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Information Dominance; and members of his senior leadership team. The format will be the same as in previous events with an emphasis on Q&A and a wrap-up session chaired by VADM Branch.
Program sessions will cover the President’s FY15 budget, identifying growth areas and cuts; the Navy’s overall priorities given threats to maritime security; challenges and opportunities to assist the Navy in maintaining resilient communications for assured command and control; requirements to ensure a tactical advantage over adversaries in battlespace awareness; and plans for strengthening the Navy’s ability to leverage the use of its electronic warfare capabilities. The final session will be a panel discussion comprised of leadership from throughout Navy Information Dominance.
Attendees will leave with not only a greater understanding of the Information Dominance mission, but with a sense of what technologies, capabilities, and services are most needed for the Navy to achieve its goals within the information domain. We hope you will join us in the TASC Heritage Conference Center on May 7, 2014, for the AFCEA Navy Information Dominance Industry Day. Sincerely,
