31st Annual Conference on International Trade

Virtual/Houston, Texas

6-9 December 2021

Turning the Page: Renewed Phase of Trade

The 31st BAFT Annual Conference on International Trade returns with a hybrid conference– two virtual programming days from December 6 – 7 followed by in-person sessions in Houston, Texas from December 8 – 9, 2021. Join us virtually and/or in-person as we cover hot topic issues in trade like ESG, trade digitization, talent/human resource management, supply chain finance, economic outlook, and more.

Over the past 18+ months as an industry we have embraced technology at a much faster pace than in the past. We’ve learned to adapt and adjust to the new norm. We’re ready to move forward and hope you are too as we turn the page to the new phase of trade!

Conference Format

This hybrid event offers a virtual and an in-person component, offered over 4 consecutive days. Each day, regardless if virtual or in-person, will include topical sessions and adequate time for networking.

For our virtual attendees, you’ll be able to schedule video conference meetings with fellow attendees using the platform, join small group discussion tables and network much like an in-person reception via our BAFT CONNECT platform.

And for our in-person attendees, we know how much you’ve missed seeing each other in-person. We’ve designed the in-person event with as much time for you to meet with colleagues, clients and other industry experts. Several times in the program are blocked exclusively for bilateral meetings and roundtable discussions in addition to scheduled reception times. We’ve also reserved several private meeting rooms for attendees to use. Please click the PROGRAM tab for additional program details.

When you register, choose between virtual-only or full conference access (in-person + virtual).
