MegaRust 2020 was Completely Virtual!
(August 2020) ASNE is excited to announce that MegaRust 2020 is happening, “Virtual!” Due to COVID-19 mandated social gathering meeting restrictions, ASNE was left with no choice but to transition our live face-to-face West Coast MegaRust 2020 into a Virtual Symposium. The MegaRust Committee has been busy creating a two-day agenda to include industry speakers, panels, technical paper presentations, live product demos, and Q&A sessions. Our virtual conference platform allows networking opportunities with live sessions, the ability to directly chat or video 1:1 with other attendees, download technical papers and presentation slides, and reconnect with the corrosion community. Take a look at our virtual symposia resources to explore further and get the low down on the “how-to”.
As customary, MegaRust 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.

“New Technologies are sometimes difficult to introduce to DoD, MegaRust and ASNE have created a platform for businesses from other industries to come together with the DOD to share information on corrosion and best work practices. In May 2018 VSM Group arrived in San Diego to our first MegaRust feeling skeptical about attending. Two hours after our arrival we engaged in in-depth conversations and meetings with key stakeholders of the US Navy and DOD. One month after attending MegaRust VSM Group was conducting its very first demo for the US Navy and in 2019 we have traveled to several Navy installations conducting demos and inspections. The methods used by MegaRust and ASNE staff to bring companies and like-minded individuals together in the same room gave our company the products exposure and created an interest within all attending participants and the DOD which to us, was immeasurable.“ - Paul Townsend and Walter Hudson III, VSM Group, LLC.
