Pre-Registration Now Open for BIS Export Controls Update Conference to be Held in Washington, DC From August 31-September 2, 2010
The Bureau of Industry and Security will hold its 23nd annual Update Conference on Export Controls and Policy from August 31, to September 2, 2009 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel. in Washington, DC. Note that this year's Update is being held a month earlier than in previous years and BIS expects the conference to move to July in coming years.
Because the expected number of attendees will likely exceed the number of persons interested in attending, BIS is again holding a registration lottery. Persons interested in attending the conference must first complete and submit the online “Interest Form” between June 15 and June 28 (be sure to click the green button on the lower right hand side to access the interest form).
If there are more potential participants than there is space available, BIS will grant registration through a random selection from the entire list of respondents, regardless of when received during the period. Those selected will be notified and given registration instructions in early July. They must register and submit payment by the designated date or their place will be forfeited and given to someone on the waiting list.
More information on the program agenda will be available in the coming weeks.
