It’s time to reconnect in person after a year of lockdowns and virtual fatigue! Amid all of the upheaval during the pandemic, our experts have stayed on top of the ever-changing trade environment with risks to anticipate and avoid by using the right insurance. Hear the insider secrets for both marine (cargo) insurance and receivables insurance. Everything from coverage to contracts to claims as well as providers to policy options to policyholder responsibilities will be discussed.

The format will be a lively interactive discussion with lots of business use cases in international trade and plenty of time for Q&A. Your safety is our number 1 priority. We are working closely with the venue to ensure we meet local, state, and CDC guidelines. Check the registration website for updates on the policies and procedures we are implementing. As of this posting, masks are required for indoor events, as well as social distancing which necessitates limiting the number of registrants. You will be required to agree to a release statement before registering for the event, and a symptom checklist will be required prior to receiving your badge for entry. (see below)
