Networking: The NAFTZ Annual Conference is the largest FTZ-related event in the United States. Our receptions, round table discussions, and exhibit hall are the ideal place to expand your network of contacts within the FTZ community. At the 2012 and 2013 Annual Conferences, exhibitors had an audience of over 440 FTZ professionals.

Current Information: We ensure that our attendees receive the latest updates by bringing together key decision makers such as representatives from U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the U.S. Foreign-Trade Zones Board, and other Participating Government Agencies, as well as top practitioners from the private sector and prominent FTZ grantees.

Education: Specialized tracks for Grantees, Operator/Users, and Fundamentals maximize the time spent by attendees on subjects relevant to their position and daily activities. Click here for a sample program from 2014.
