No one knows the Bureau of Industry and Security better than the people who’ve worked there, and we’ve assembled some of the best for this one-of-a-kind deep dive into US export practice. Together, our expert panelists have 140+ years of experience working for BIS in Washington and around the globe, and they'll be joined by experienced practitioners from industry, consulting, and law firms.
Join us at the beautiful El Prado Hotel in Palo Alto for an inside look at how BIS operates, with sessions covering everything from classification best practices to getting advice -- formally or informally -- from BIS. Then enjoy our post-event happy hour, featuring roundtables for more focused discussion with our presenters.
