Please join us for SmarTrade 2022, a complimentary and interactive workshop focusing on key developments, risks and opportunities in the areas of international trade, transportation and global supply chains. The workshop format provides a unique opportunity to discuss industry best practices and common compliance pitfalls with experts in the field and your peers.

We will discuss the compliance and enforcement arena for imports, exports and areas such as forced labor regulations and associated compliance challenges and solutions. We will address ways to manage your company's risk exposure and provide practical tips for dealing with the increase in government investigations relating to global trade transactions. Finally, we will discuss the current administration’s focus on international trade and developments as we close 2022 and turn to the next year.
