It is also unique in the sense most of the speakers work in the industry they represent versus the sales and marketing speakers typically found in other conferences.

    ACI's economic sanctions conferences are provided at an advanced level, and have always had excellent coverage of new as well as persistent issues. The faculty is drawn from agency counsel as well as experienced OFAC practitioners, both in-house corporate compliance counsel and law firm counsel. These well-run conferences, both in the US and abroad, have also afforded practitioners a forum for discussion of common problems, and are worth attending for that networking alone.

    Well co-ordinated conferences with well-rounded attendances from trade compliance professionals around the globe. The structure of the conferences were very nicely organised, & the venues selected represented the signature landmarks of ACI Conferences. I'd enjoyed the fruitful time spent as an invited speaker in the 2010 conferences at Beijing & Singapore. I would not hesitate to participate again, whenever time allows, as both speaker &/or audience. All stars rating *** !
