12th Defence Exports Conference - 04/05/2017

ECR expert Gary Stanley to chair 12th annual Defence Exports event in September

Esteemed export control regulations expert Gary Stanley, President of Global Legal Services, returns as Conference Chair for SMi’s Defence Exports 2017 event this September in Prague.

Gary says "With major political shifts on both sides of the Atlantic, amendments to US and European export controls reflecting those shifts, and the growing challenges that cyber compliance brings to the defence trade community, the need for clarity and a clear view of the future has never been greater. This year’s Defence Exports conference will assess how these key influences will affect export controls and will provide expert insight into best practices for future compliance.

I believe Defence Exports 2017 is the ideal forum to tackle these timely issues, hence I am providing my support behind the conference as chairman."

Gary will also be hosting an exclusive half-day pre-conference workshop on 26 September 2017 on Update on Export Controls and IT.

Defence Exports 2017 will feature 27 presentations, 4 workshops, and an exclusive panel discussion. The the packed agenda will bring insights from leading international government and senior trade compliance professionals to keep you up-to-date on regulation controls including ITAR, EAR, ECR, Dual-Use and the Wassenaar Arrangement. In addition, this year's conference will explore how political developments of 2017 have made - and will make - a profound impact on the global defence trade.
