July 18, 2008: WTC Tacoma's 3rd Annual "Importer, Be Aware"

The practice of dumping involves price manipulation that potentially harms U.S. manufacturers and competitors where the import price is deemed too low by the U.S. Department of Commerce. American importers are at serious risk for severe penalties when they are caught in a dumping situation.

The intention of the annual Importer, Be Aware seminar is to highlight and discuss dumping, customs pitfalls, and the potential risks of importing. The seminar aims to provide you with the knowledge and tools to avoid importing risks.

Friday, July 18, 2008 8:00am – 12:30 pm individual appointments available from 12:20 – 2:30pm

Sea-Tac Airport Conference Center Auditorium
