About MegaRust 2022 - West Coast
MegaRust is scheduled for June 1-3, 2022 at the San Diego Marriott Mission Valley in San Diego, California!
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.
The most recent information released by the CDC will be provided to participants to ensure that you are kept up to date with what will be required for our MegaRust in-person event! If you have tested positive for COVID-19 and are unable to attend in compliance with CDC guidelines, consider transitioning your registration to attend virtually. If you do not wish to attend virtually, ASNE Members will receive full reimbursement; Non-ASNE Members can have their registration be transferred to a future ASNE symposium or event.
ASNE will follow CDC guidelines as well as rules and laws issued by the State of California, City of San Diego, and the San Diego Marriott Mission Valley.
