The 11th Annual Export Control Forum

April 20-21, 2016
Burlingame, California

The Export Control Forum is a one-and-a-half day program dedicated to bringing the business community up-to-speed on the latest initiatives underway in the export control field, including the latest developments in the Export Control Reform initiative.

Over the day-and-a half program, you will hear key policy, management, technical, legal, and enforcement personnel from the Bureau of Industry and Security and other relevant agencies provide detailed information on recent changes and those you can expect in the near future. Under Secretary for Industry and Security Eric Hirschhorn will provide the opening keynote address. Day one will conclude with a networking opportunity to mingle and discuss issues of concern with the presenters and other participants. On day two, we will continue in plenary session; there will be no breakout sessions as in previous years.
