Maximizing the Military Value of Our Installations

Register Now

No matter which way the BRAC winds blow, there is one constant priority – sustaining the military value of our military installations. Supporting the defense presence unites leaders from installations, communities and industry in an ongoing journey that evolves with the needs of the military. As new challenges that threaten military value emerge, new ideas and approaches take root. This is where innovation begins. This is Installation Innovation 2018 – the leading professional development forum focused on military installation innovation.

Join us in sunny San Diego California for this exciting event. San Diego is home to one of the largest concentration of military forces anywhere in the world. “America’s Finest City” is the homeport of the USN’s 3rd Fleet, Submarine Squadron 11, Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command and the Naval Special Warfare Command. The extended metropolitan area is also the headquarters of the 1st Marine Division, the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing and the Marine Corps Recruit Depot; where Marines are made.


Join 600 of the top community, military and industry leaders in San Diego next February 12-14 for a unique educational opportunity that will explore the key
issues that define military value:

Understand how current and future mission capabilities impact operational readiness.

Protect the availability and condition of land, facilities, and associated airspace.

Improve the ability to accommodate contingency, mobilization, surge, and future total force requirements.

Manage the cost of operations, including cost of living and quality of life.

Analyze the strategic impact of the location of an installation.

IIF is designed for installation commanders and staff to attend with their community. For information on how to encourage participation from your installation staff, contact Aleksandar “Pav” Pavlovich at
