CBP Symposium Date Change & C-TPAT Conference Postponed

CBP West Coast Trade Symposium 2012

Originally CBP planned to hold the East Coast CBP Symposium right after the C-TPAT conference from September 24-28th in DC. I thought that was a great idea and hope it works in the future. For now, the C-TPAT conference is postponed and the CBP Symposium has a new date.

So mark your calendars for the CBP Symposium titled "Transforming Trade for a Stronger Economy", it is now October 29-30 in Washington, DC. CBP is limiting attendance to 3 representatives per company, so plan accordingly. Registration has not yet been announced - but, I will say, you need to act fast, it's sold out within a day typically. It's an excellent opportunity to meet with all levels at CBP - take advantage! The Symposium already took place on the West Coast, for a sneak peak at what to expect in DC, see the agenda here. Questions for CBP about the symposium may be sent to

CBP advised all member of C-TPAT that "C-TPAT will not be holding its 2012 Conference in September due to scheduling and logistics challenges. We are currently working to revise the planning in order to bring you the conference material at a later date. We will provide updated information as we get it on both the website and through email messages on the C-TPAT Portal. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused."

See you at the CBP Symposium!
