    Klaus Koester,


    If you look for a comprehensive source on compliance, ACI's Trade Conferences will give you access to the latest multinational expertise on trade issues. The speakers are very knowledgeable and can give you a brought overview as well as in depth details. The conference allowed me to get the latest compliance updates as well as the opportunity to discuss with a wide group of experts my specific topics. No other source has given me such wealth of information about compliance in such a short time.

    I have attended and presented at a variety of ACI hosted events across the country. No one does it better! If you are looking for top-notch, knowledgeable speakers and a timely agenda, then ACI is "the source" to go to. In particular, their ITAR Boot Camps and National Forums have consistently proven to be invaluable when it comes to education, training and staying in touch with what's going on in and across industry and the US Government.

    I have attended several ACI conferences and been a faculty member for the IT Management of Export Controls. Through these avenues, ACI creates a open environment to share experiences and better understand industry best practices. 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. I highly recommend ACI 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 *** !
