Complexity Permeates Global Trade
Growth in global trade has led to a significant increase in complexity and recent and future geo-political changes are likely to heighten this trend. International trade practitioners continue to be challenged by the fast pace of change.
In this highly complex environment, we have designed the Advanced Topics in Customs Compliance Conference to serve as a primary resource for industry professionals seeking to stay abreast of several highly complex and timely topics, which include: Preparing for U.S. Customs Audits and Surveys, Qualifying for First Sale Valuation, Export Voluntary Disclosure Process, Anti-Dumping and Countervailing Duties, OFAC Sanctions, Advanced Transaction Value, Classification Cases, Statistical Sampling and Prior Disclosures and U.S. Customs Reconciliation Program. In-depth discussions, case studies, state-of-the-art facilities and a highly experienced group of speakers will enable participants to gain invaluable knowledge, insights and industry connections.
We welcome you to the conference and assure you this will be the best event you attend in 2017.
Thank you for all your calls and emails during this terrible catastrophe; thankfully, our team and our offices are intact and we continue making final preparations for the conference. The JW Marriott Hotel is also in good shape and they are eager to host us in three weeks. While we are grateful for our safety and well-being, we are also mindful of the thousands who have been displaced and have lost so much. Below is a small list of organizations accepting donations toward Harvey relief; any amount donated would be greatly appreciated by everyone affected. Thank you!
