WASHINGTON, D.C.—U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announces today CBP Industry Day scheduled for Tuesday, May 22, 2012 at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, DC. The one day event, "Evolving Border Security and Trade Missions: Insights and Discussions with Industry," will provide industry an opportunity to gain a better understanding of CBP's operating environment and how it shapes the agency's near and long-term strategies.
Hosted in response to industry request, Industry Day will provide a venue for members of industry to engage with CBP leadership. The event is not a "how to" procurement event - it is industry's opportunity for an open dialogue with CBP decision makers.
Industry Day will include moderated panel discussions with question and answer periods in the areas of Border Security, Expediting Trade and Travel, and Intelligence and Targeting. The day will conclude with a session focusing on future opportunities.
The event will feature a same day webcast for companies unable to attend in person. There is no fee to attend the event. For more information and to register go to the Industry Day website.
