Trade in a Shifting World
The 98th Annual AAEI Conference and Expo, June 26-28, 2019 in Washington, DC, is an opportunity for trade professionals to better understand commerce in the shifting world of international trade. AAEI’s conferences bring together practitioners and policymakers for the common purpose of facilitating the movement of goods safely and securely. In a shifting world, keeping up with the flow of change has challenged everyone involved in trade. Attendees will take away strategic and tactical approaches and compliance knowledge for their trade operations. The conference will be held at the Renaissance Washington, DC Downtown Hotel in the heart of Washington, DC’s lively Penn Quarter.

2019 Program Concept
AAEI’s conference planning team devised a new concept for this year’s program, meant to maximize the content value for attendees of all professional levels.
Each general session at the 98th Annual AAEI Conference and Expo will be followed by two corresponding breakout sessions, one for each of the following tracks:
- Policy and Strategy
- Compliance and Operations
The result will mean attendees will take away more than they expect from a high level AAEI annual conference experience. They will retain important information on strategic and operational levels. The 2019 AAEI conference is for people who work in trade– and for people who work on trade.
Agenda is updated often and subject to change.
