Sanctions and Export Control Conference: Amsterdam 2024

Shift to Anticipatory Compliance to Drive Your Business Forward Within the Less Forgiving & Constantly Developing Enforcement Environment

Amsterdam, Netherlands
May 2024

“Mitigate new compliance risks amid unprecedented regulatory changes and much less forgiving enforcement”

Why Join the Conference

Sanctions & Export Controls will return in 2024 to help you explore how you can avoid very costly investigations, multi-million civil and criminal penalties, and reputational damage at a time when sanctions compliance officers are required to be on top of crucial new developments, and to benchmark and re-evaluate compliance risks and priorities.

With further geopolitical shakeups, rapid technological disruptions, and the nature of sanctions (an already massive regulatory compliance minefield for multinationals) evolving in complexity and extra-territorial outreach, the EU Commission, OFAC, and other enforcement bodies are expected to continue to step up and sharpen their enforcement actions and extend their reach in terms of both scope and severity, making it essential for you to be on top of your sanctions and export controls strategy.
