TRACE Forum

THE PREMIER ANTI-BRIBERY BENCHMARKING AND BEST PRACTICES SHARING EVENT

TRACE is pleased to announce the dates for the TRACE 2020 Forum which will be held for the first time in Annapolis, Maryland, where TRACE is headquartered, on 19-20 March 2020, with pre-forum workshops taking place on 18 March. Hosted at The Westin Annapolis, the TRACE 2020 Forum will provide an opportunity for members to visit TRACE headquarters located nearby and meet with our product managers and member experience team.

The TRACE Forum brings member companies together annually to exchange best practices and discuss compliance trends. The program is designed to provide senior-level compliance executives with an update on the latest anti-bribery enforcement trends, regulatory developments and emerging issues affecting compliance. New for this year, main conference breakout sessions will allow for smaller-group discussions focused on industry or country-specific risks. Attend to hear from your peers, senior officials from the U.S. Department of Justice and Securities and Exchange Commission, anti-bribery practitioners and TRACE experts on how to maintain a dynamic compliance program and effectively respond to new challenges and risks.
