    The 2023 NADEC Annual Export Conference will bring together distinguished speakers including business leaders, high-ranking U.S. and foreign government officials, exporters, trade service providers, and trade promotion agencies. This Conference provides space for industry peers to share expertise, proven export strategies, effective resources, and more during concurrent sessions.

    Featured keynotes and panels will focus on Trade Policy Updates and Export Opportunities and Challenges. The NADEC Trade Policy Committee has identified timely issues that need to be addressed in order for U.S. exporters to have a fair playing field and competitive advantage in the global marketplace.

    Planned topics include updates on:

    • Global Supply Chain issues (disruption, resiliency, security, regulations),
    • Africa (opening new opportunities),
    • EU – Working with our Allies, Indo Pacific Framework,
    • How the U.S. can counter the China trade threat,
    • Opportunities for re-shoring and near-shoring, and
    • Best practices for local DEC engagement at the grass-roots level, including Congressional trade advocacy.

    DEC members can take the lead in building the trade DNA (of future exporters) and unlocking export potential. DEC members and U.S. exporters need to be well-versed on these issues and participate in the Hill breakfast and visits with Congressional representatives on Day 2 of the conference.

    Early Bird Registration (until 4/1/23) – $249

    Regular Registration (4/2/23-5/9/23) – $299


    To ensure we are reflecting on timely topics of interest and the most current trends in the field, NADEC welcomes continued input from practitioners of ideas for panels, discussions and lectures related to exporting that would be beneficial to our conference attendees.
