Ex-Im Bank Upcoming Annual Conference

The Export-Import Bank of the United States (Ex-Im Bank) will hold its Annual Conference March 31-April 1 in Washington, D.C. Ex-Im Bank’s Annual Conference is one of the nation’s premier venues for discussing U.S. trade policy and developing strategies to expand the role exports play in the U.S. economy.

This year’s event, with the theme of “Government at the Speed of Business,” will feature a range of plenary sessions and workshops focused on small-business exporters, market and industry opportunities and the Obama Administration’s National Export Initiative (NEI), the details of which the President announced at the Bank’s annual conference in 2010.

The conference attracts over 1,000 U.S. exporters, foreign buyers and lenders to hear presentations on the U.S. and world economies, learn about global export opportunities, network and discuss potential sales and export financing prospects. This year, five ambassadors, current and senior Obama Administration advisors and CEOs of leading U.S. and international companies are among the distinguished speakers.

“We are honored to have such a prestigious group of individuals contributing to this year’s conference,” said Fred P. Hochberg, Ex-Im Bank chairman and president. “They will provide attendees with valuable insights into the vital role that exports are playing in the revival of the U.S. economy, and they’ll identify significant sales opportunities for American companies.”

In addition to the plenary session presentations, a number of breakout sessions are planned, covering topics such as:  

  • Ex-Im Bank’s “Global Access for Small Business” Initiative
  • Export Opportunities in Nigeria, South Africa, Colombia and South and Southeast Asia
  • Infrastructure Opportunities in Brazil
  • Renewable Energy and Medical Technology Exports
  • Unique Structured Finance Transactions
