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.

Live Demos

Mega Rust and our Live Demos section continues to grow and we want you to be a part of it!

Our Live Demos event is an opportunity for your company to showcase your products to those who will be in attendance via our a live break out session being held this year at the Marriott Mission Valley San Diego on June 2nd at 5:00PM (time is subject to change) and will run for approximately one and a half hours.

This year we want our Live Demo participants to think about what you have to offer that's in a Small Package but offers a Big Punch! We're choosing this theme as we are limited to the type of demos we can do at this venue from not only space, but also our proximity to traffic, and venue noise restrictions on blasting or, the spraying of coatings. So think about the innovations your company brings to the market in a small package that solves a big need, or problem. It could be the latest and greatest hand held surface preparation tools, new safety solutions, unique product packaging like blister packs, cartridges, single component solutions etc. What do you have in a hand sized package that packs and industry wide punch!

As always this portion of the event is open to all Exhibitors and Mega Rust sponsors free of charge but on a first come first reserve basis. Reservations will be open until March 21st so reserve your spot soon as space is limited to the first twelve (12) respondents and will fill up quickly. Those who have secured a spot will be notified by EOB on March 22nd. To reserve your space, please send a message on what you want to feature to the email below. Thank you to this year's Live Demo Event Sponsors: Sunbelt Rentals, Sherwin Williams, and NCP Coatings in advance. We all look forward to seeing you in San Diego!
