About the Conference - Who Should Attend? Why?

Now in its 42nd year, the NCBFAA Annual Conference brings together more than 600 of the international trade industry's top representatives from around the United States. For five days in Tucson, AZ, the nation's leading customs brokers, freight forwarders, NVOCCs, OTI and service providers gather to update themselves on industry developments and to connect with colleagues new and old.

All NCBFAA Members and potential Regular, Affiliate, and Associate Members are strongly encouraged to consider joining us for the industry event of the year, the 2016 NCBFAA Annual Conference, where you will:

  • Learn from NCBFAA subject matter experts how to overcome industry challenges before your competitors do!
  • Hear from Federal, state and industry experts about the latest issues affecting your business!
  • Find out what new products and services can help your bottom line from our Exhibitors in the Exhibitor MarketPlace!
  • Acquire fresh ideas by networking at numerous social venues with old friends and business colleagues while meeting new people!

Because importers and exporters (NEI Professional Members) may attend various NEI webinars and participate in NEI Case Studies to obtain the required CEUs throughout the year, NEI Professional Members who are ineligible for NCBFAA Regular, Associate or Affiliate Membership may no longer participate in either the NCBFAA Annual Conference or the NCBFAA Government Affairs Conference.

To cancel a registration, please notify us via email to or fax to (202) 466-0226. Refunds will be processed less a $50 administrative fee. No refunds will be made after April 10, 2016. Except for Exhibitor registrants, registration substitutions, for this event only, are acceptable anytime.

Please note, there is no "BILL ME" option for this event.
Payment can be made by credit card at check-out.
