Global trade compliance is critical to manufacturing company success and growth but it’s also complicated. Therefore, it’s imperative to understand and stay ahead of the evolving trade issues and take the appropriate steps to mitigate risks and ensure compliance to successfully participate and compete in the global marketplace.
In one day, we’ll provide you with the knowledge, tools, and insights to move the needle on trade-related compliance issues that are most important to trade compliance leaders. The MAPI Global Trade Compliance Forum is a best practice sharing event for trade compliance attorneys and leaders from B2B manufacturers, featuring roundtable discussions and peer-led case studies and strategies for driving compliance throughout the organization. It provides an environment for attendees to engage with, learn from, and share with peers on key trade compliance issues. MAPI has a proven track record of putting on outstanding events filled with relevant best practices for manufacturing's leaders.
What makes MAPI forums different?
Roundtable discussions: Rich dialogue on the issues you care about, moderated to keep discussions focused on the “so what”.
Peer to peer sharing: There are no talking heads. Almost all of the content is delivered by your peers at global manufacturers.
No death by PowerPoint: While our presenters deliver outstanding content, we schedule ample time for interaction and Q&A, so that you can dig deep into the topics that matter.
No pitches: Our forums never have more than one sponsor, and there are no sales pitches. None.
Balance of strategy and utility: Our forums deliver great content around strategy and peer-tested frameworks for putting those strategies into action
