SMi Group is delighted to announce its 13th annual Defence Exports conference convening on the 19th and 20th September 2018, in Rome, Italy.
SMi’s Defence Exports conference will return as the leading event for industry professionals and government officials around the world dealing with defense trade compliance. A truly global event, delegates will hear from government speakers and senior international trade compliance professionals from around the world on regulation controls including ITAR, EAR, ECR, Dual-Use and the Wassenaar Arrangement.
As well as sharing best practices for how leading organisations manage their global trade programmes, this year’s event will deal with the emerging issues and challenges facing the defence trade in 2018. After a year in office, the US Presidential administration is yet to make its intentions in regards to trade reform clear and, with the Brexit deadline of March 2019 drawing closer, significant development to trade control on both sides of the Atlantic is expected. In addition, with a growing number of high profile cyber-attacks hitting industries across the globe in 2017, there is an urgent need to implement risk management strategies to adapt to the reliance on cloud-computing and cloud-services.
This industry-leading conference provides an unrivalled opportunity to meet, network and learn from leading lawyers, consultants, industry professionals and government officials from around the world.
