The theme of the 2015 Conference is 'The Future of Sea Power'. How governments use their navies and the composition of these navies evolve over time, to meet both current and emerging security challenges as well as advances in technology, to name but a few of these driving factors. A service life of a warship of approximately 30 years might imply a static approach to how it might be used.

But as we know, this is not the case as warship designs must encompass the reality of changing roles as well as an ability to incorporate new technologies over the service life of the vessel. Thus the future of sea power is influenced by a myriad of factors that will impact on the possible roles of navies, the capabilities required by navies, and the technologies that might be used by navies.

The RAN Sea Power Conference 2015 will explore these changes and their implications for navies in the future.

Appropriate to the role of PACIFIC 2015  as a major international maritime and naval defence industry forum, the venue will be the Sydney Exhibition Centre @ Glebe Island (the interim location whilst the redevelopment of the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre takes place due for completion in December 2016).

Perched on Sydney’s picturesque harbour foreshore near the Anzac Bridge and just minutes from Darling Harbour, this exciting new venue has spectacular harbour-side setting with deep-water berths alongside, and nearby, for ships on display.

The Royal Australian Navy Sea Power Conference 2015 has reviewed its format to best utilise the available facilities at Sydney Exhibition Centre @ Glebe Island, and for this reason the conference will be by invitation only.
