Will Watkins, one of the organizers of the Global Trade Controls Conference (see the ad in the right column), asked me to post the following:
The 25th annual Global Trade Controls conference is taking place in London on 13 and 14 November 2012, and is shaping up to be a great opportunity for export controls professionals to find out the latest information in one place, meet each other, make new contacts and renew old ones. The highlights of this year include new and extended sessions on sanctions and embargoes, global company compliance programmes, and understanding enforcement. With the rapid changes happening in sanctions, particularly against Iran, there is no better place to come to understand the latest developments: expert speakers include Barbara Hammerle, the Deputy Director of OFAC, Natalia Shehadeh of Weatherford International and Aaron Gothelf of Tyco International.
The conference has been designed to allow as much audience participation as possible, so please prepare your questions and bring them with you for discussion on the day.
In addition to the main conference, the annual pre-conference seminar ‘An Introduction to Export Licensing’ takes place on 12th November, and new for 2012, a half day workshop on ‘Defence Trade Controls’ takes place on 15th November covering the UK/USA and Australia/USA defence cooperation treaties , ITAR and EU export licensing for defence goods and technology.

We are promoting this conference because my colleague Anita Esslinger from our London office will be speaking. Also, the organizers kindly gave us one free admission to the conference which is being used by another one of our lawyers in Europe.
