Update 2015

November 2-4, 2015

The annual Update Conference on Export Controls and Policy gives the exporting community the opportunity to learn first-hand from senior U.S. Government officials about current issues and trends in export control policies, regulations and practices. This major outreach activity draws business and government representatives from around the world to learn and exchange ideas about export control issues. It provides the opportunity to network with colleagues in the export control industry, interact with U.S. Government officials, and learn about programs and services offered by U.S. Government and industry exhibitors. It is one of the Department’s most notable international trade events.

Exhibit opportunities are available. The exhibit hall will be open during the entire conference: on Monday, November 2 and Tuesday, November 3 from 7:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., and on Wednesday, November 4 from 7:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
