Register for this event to hear from distinguished officials from ATF, Customs and Border Protection, the Census Bureau, and the Departments of State, Commerce, and Justice. The convenient virtual format with content delivered from 12:00 – 5:00 p.m. ET over four days allows attendees to manage ongoing business demands each day, while staying current with the rules and policies governing firearms and ammunition imports and exports.  CLICK HERE FOR THE DRAFT AGENDA - 3/2/2023
