About the Event

Does my product need a license for export? What’s considered “dual use?” Is my conversation with a prospective foreign buyer considered a “deemed export”?

Take a deep dive with MWTC Tech Export Team member Justin Cook about the dos and don’ts of export licensing and compliance. Learn about export control policies, regulations, and compliance programs before you engage in export. And if you’re already engaged, make sure your business development and management team understand the basics.


And there’s more! Learn from your peers with a live case study at our FREE evening event, featuring Ascent Vision. Hear members of our Tech Export Team weigh in on best practices while learning about Ascent Vision’s experience selling internationally. Refreshments will be provided.
