Despite cuts in defense spending that contributed to reductions in corporate marketing budgets, defense and government contractors continue to invest in expositions that deliver critical interactions with decision makers. Record breaking sales for the AFCEA TechNet Asia Pacific Conference, which hosted experts that discussed continued efforts to assure interoperability in a region, featured speakers included Adm. Harry B. Harris, USN, commander, U.S. Pacific Fleet; Terry Halvorsen, acting chief information officer, U.S. Defense Department; Gen. Vincent K. Brooks, USA, commanding general, U.S. Army Pacific; Lt. Gen. Kevin McLaughlin, deputy commander, U.S. Cyber Command; and Lt. Gen. John A. Toolan, USMC, commander, U.S. Marine Corps Forces Pacific.

Accolades from AFCEA Leadership:
"Just to let everyone know, both the revenue and sponsorship goals for TNAP 2014 were exceeded. It was a job well done by the entire Spargo team and all of the other employees behind the curtain that made this happen. It has been a pleasure to work with all of you during my two years as AFCEA Hawaii President. Mahalo and Aloha."
"2015 is going to be hard pressed to surpass 2014. However, we all feel that Spargo will come through again and surpass this year’s numbers. Congratulations to all the Spargo folks for a job well done."
"Great going Spargo folks – heard that we exceeded our sponsorship forecast. Thanks to all for all that you did to make this a successful conference and exhibition."
