About MegaRust 2021 - East Coast

MegaRust is scheduled for September 21-23, 2021 at the Hampton Roads Convention Center in Hampton, Virginia!


COVID-19 Update:

*Please Note: The Hampton Roads Convention Center is owned by the City of Hampton, VA. The city has set a mandatory mask requirement for all events in city owned buildings.

COVID-19 Guidelines & Precautions:
The American Society of Naval Engineers and the Hampton Roads Convention Center are working closely with federal, state, and local governments to insure the health and safety of our attendees, and will continue to follow DOD, DHS, OPM and CDC health authorities guidance.

MegaRust attendees, while inside the Hampton Roads Convention Center, will be required to wear a facemask, except for short durations while eating, drinking, speaking at the podium, or at the panel tables with appropriate social distanced seating.

The Hampton Roads Convention Center is providing grab & go food selections, packaged food options, and other safety protocols to minimize touch points and maximize social distancing, including use of outdoor live demonstration areas, outdoor reception and seating venues, decal reminders for social safeguards, and socially distanced traffic flow for exhibit hall and meeting rooms.


MegaRust is conducted annually to provide a consolidated focus on Navy corrosion issues. Corrosion is a major factor in the readiness and total ownership cost of naval systems and this conference is intended to provide updated information on programs, policies, standards and Fleet experience related to corrosion and to promote discussion and sharing of information on technologies and strategies for controlling corrosion.

The conference provides an impartial forum for dialogue between government and commercial organizations, and providers of coatings and corrosion control products, processes, technologies and solutions. Participants include representatives from military, industry, and government organizations involved with research and development, design, engineering, construction, maintenance, modernization and operation of naval systems that are potentially affected by corrosion. The conference covers all segments of the naval services including sea, air, Marine Corps, vehicles, and facilities.

For assistance or event questions, please email: ASNE-events@navalengineers.org or call ASNE HQ at 703-836-6727.

MegaRust Mid-Year Review
