About TechNet Indo-Pacific

TIP_NetworkingConsidered by many a natural region that stretches from the African east coast to the U.S. west coast, the Indo-Pacific area has undergone a strategic shift that requires reliable connectivity between the Indian and Pacific oceans. Today’s reality is that the historic and contemporary nations in South Asia, specifically India, play a major role in shaping present and future discourses.

Keying off this shift, AFCEA International and AFCEA Hawaii have re-named their signature event in the region TechNet Indo-Pacific. By far the largest event focusing on regional defense issues, the conference will reflect the expanded broader Asia view with participation from throughout the area, discussing defense policies and challenges and their relevance to both industry and government through this new lens.
