As a result of the prolonged lapse in government funding, CBP’s much-anticipated 2013 East Coast Trade Symposium in D.C. has been postponed. The lapse in appropriations has significantly impacted CBP’s ability to hold the event as planned. Although CBP was hopeful that the appropriations issues would have been resolved by now, and were hoping to proceed as planned, unfortunately, that is not possible. CBP is committed to hosting the event at a later date, and looks forward to announcing the new date as soon as possible.
For those that have registered and paid for their symposium registration, CBP will be refunding your registration fee. The refunds will be processed once the partial government shutdown is concluded.
As soon as CBP announces the new dates for the Symposium, we will let you know.
