The 2015 conference, to be held May 11- 13, 2015 at the Marriott’s Orlando World Center Resort is accepting speaker submissions through February 28, 2015 for selected topics. The Firearms Industry Compliance Conference is the only venue that brings together all segments of the industry–manufacturers, importers, exporters, distributors, dealers, and regulators to focus on operational compliance.
The theme of the 2015 conference is “How can I optimize compliance?” Over two-and-one-half days, the three session tracks will include “keynote” presentations, and networking opportunities related to the following areas:
- Manufacturing and Import / Export Compliance
- Dealer and Distributor Compliance
- Regulations and Enabling Technology
“The 2014 event was a major success with over 40% of the attendees registering for the 2015 conference before it was over. We expect this year’s event to be even stronger,” says Jon Rydberg, CEO of Orchid Advisors.
“We are excited that ATF is committed to the Firearms Industry Compliance Conference series. This provides a valuable opportunity for industry members to interact directly with senior ATF personnel on compliance topics.”
Last year’s speakers and attendees included the following firearm companies, regulators and trade groups, amongst others. Walmart, Remington Outdoor Company, Smith & Wesson, Mossberg, ARC Worldwide, Davidson’s, Lipsey’s, Big Rock Sports, Colt, Ruger, Century Arms, FN America, Troy Industries, Kimber, Taurus, ATF, NSSF, F.A.I.R. Trade, US Customs and Border Protection and the National Firearms Dealer Network. Highlights from last year’s event can be found on our website.
Speaking requests should be submitted online prior to February 28, 2015; speakers will be notified by March 15 2015. In addition, industry participants may submit requests for the ATF-delivered presentations to 2015FICC(at)orchidadvisors(dot)com.
