Trade Shows can create a variety of traps for the unwary, from unauthorized transport of demo materials to foreign locations to unauthorized transfer of technical data to foreign trade show visitors and unauthorized interactions with parties subject to U.S. sanctions.

Planning ahead is critical to promoting and marketing products compliantly. The Presentation will review how exports can happen at trade shows and what steps companies can take to stay compliant, including what authorizations are available and how to use them.

This presentation will address:

  • How exports happen at trade shows.
  • When authorization is necessary.
