U.S. and Customs Border Protection Trade Symposium 2012
January 2012 | While for the last 11 years, U.S.
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has hosted its annual Trade
Symposium in Washington D.C., this year, for the first time, two
separate symposia will be held.
The dates have not yet been finalized, but the tentative schedule is
to have the first one-day event in Long Beach, California in April and
the second in Washington, D.C. in September. This change in
scheduling results from CBP’s wanting to make the symposium more
convenient for attendees, so that they can better learn about
CPB’s border management programs and policies.
The annual Trade Symposium is typically attended by 800 people
desiring to learn more about the CBP programs and policies that impact
their businesses, as well as to network.
