The surface warships conference has become established as the premier meeting ground for the higher naval commands of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization alliance and partner states. It attracts over 150 senior officials, including navy commanders, directors of materiel, heads of strategic programs, capability planners, shipyard directors, and leading solution providers.

Over the course of three days, the event will address the themes now, tomorrow, and the future, focusing on operational requirements for current operations, anticipated platform modernization, and integration of disruptive technologies for future surface warships.

The conference will allow the exchange of knowledge in the field of ship design, construction, and operations across the entire spectrum of surface warships—identifying solutions for modernizing capabilities, and enhancing interoperability to maintain maritime superiority against near-peer opponents and asymmetric threats.
