2018 Annual Conference Succeeds

June 19, 2018

The 97th Annual AAEI Conference and Expo was held in Baltimore, Maryland, June 6-8, 2018, under the theme, Inflection Point: The Future of Trade Policy, Technology and Globalization. The theme reflected the uncertain atmosphere of trade policy despite the gathering speed of trade practice and trade technology. 

Trade compliance professionals face significant uncertainty stemming from current U.S. trade policy and emerging technologies. Political support for trade liberalization is waning while the industry appears to be at the cusp of yet another technological revolution which will further integrate the global economy. AAEI’s 2018 Annual Conference explored how these trends converge to impact the future of global trade and provided attendees with the latest information, thought leadership on policy choices, and compliance strategies to deal with the current trade environment. 

Planning is underway for the 98th Annual AAEI Conference and Expo, which will be held June 26-28, 2018 in Washington, DC. Information on the program and Early Bird registration will be published here once it becomes available.
