Opening the 2021 iteration of the Navy League’s Sea-Air-Space (SAS) Exposition, James Geurts, acting UnderSecretary of the Navy, congratulated the capacity audience on being part of the first, large international defense gathering since early 2020 when COVID-19 emerged and shut down such events. Mr. Geurts said that SAS Exposition would feature approximately 15,000 attendees, 300 exhibitors and 270 speakers from some 39 nations.
Mr. Geurts praised the efforts of the Navy and its industry partners during COVID, saying “we did not let the challenges slow us down” and noting that “we did not shut down a shipyard for a single day during the COVID period.” Mr. Geurts urged the audience to envision possible futures, build scaleable platforms, and relentlessly and boldly experiment to test concepts and relationships. In closing, he challenged the audience to make the most of the venue. “Talk frankly and boldly – then the risk that the Navy League took makes it worthwhile.”
