SMi Group's 8th annual Defence Exports conference, 2 – 3 October 2013, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Defence Exports 2013
Europe's leading conference for senior export control professionals

Defence Exports 2013 returns for the 8th annual event to feature a line-up of leading speakers and key Government officials from the US, Europe and across the world. Attendees will be able to learn about the latest updates on international export control regulations.

Many European export control managers have only dealt with the ITAR and are therefore relatively unfamiliar with the nuances to EAR regulatory requirements. With the recent Obama export control reforms, industry are now being forced to do a hurried study of the EAR. This conference is designed to give those working in defence exports compliance the insights and tools they need to survive the recent changes and work toward greater success with their export compliance.

Understand defence exports on a global scale and place your company at a strategic advantage with critical compliance information. After last year's completely sold out event, this year’s event is expected to be no different so those interested are advised to register early.
