SMi are pleased to announce the 7th annual Defence Exports conference convening on the 1st and 2nd October 2012 in Amsterdam.

Take this opportunity to network with key Government speakers and industry leaders from the U.S., Europe and Far East to learn all the latest updates on international export control regulations.

At this symposium, delegates will gain valuable insight from officials of the U.S. Department of State, U.S. Department of Commerce, U.S. Department of Defense, and the newly formed Export Enforcement Coordination Center (E2C2) on the current developments in US Export Reforms and plans for the future. The conference will also analyse how regulations on dual-use items impact on defence companies' global trade operations, as well as discuss export controls for countries such as Malaysia, India and Korea to give attendees a strategic advantage with critical compliance information.

Defence Exports 2012 draws together export control professionals from international Government departments, case studies from the major defence companies in the world, international trade law expertise from global law firms and trade management experience from leading consultancies in the field. This combined and comprehensive knowledge will equip any senior export professional with the critical information and skills to manage their international defence trade operations efficiently while staying compliant with the labyrinth of different controls and regulations.
