A diverse group of military, government, commercial and industrial experts gathered in a unique conference environment to examine the integration of information. Topics from weather to warfare filled a high-level agenda onboard the Silja Serenade, a ship of the Silja Line, which served as the exhibit hall and conference center for TechNet Europe 2007. The ship carried conference attendees from Stockholm to Helsinki and back as part of the October event.

At the event, AFCEA International President and Chief Executive Officer Kent R. Schneider met with conference participants, who were presented with mementos in appreciation of their efforts in support of the TechNet Europe.
