Connor executives, Matt Kmet and Butch Connor are representing John S. Connor at the NCBFAA 50th Golden Jubilee Annual Conference. The national association’s annual conference brings together more than 600 of the international trade industry’s top representatives from around the United States. For four days in New Orleans, the nation’s leading customs brokers, freight forwarders, NVOCCs, OTIs, and service providers gather to update themselves on industry developments and connect with colleagues – new and old. The 2023 NCBFAA Annual Conference offers attendees the opportunity to (1) learn from NCBFAA subject matter experts how to overcome industry challenges; (2) hear from federal, state, and industry experts about the latest issues affecting business; (3) discover new products and services to help the bottom line from Exhibitors in the Exhibitor MarketPlace and (4) acquire fresh ideas by networking at numerous social venues. Matt and Butch report that the conference is enabling them to celebrate the industry, enjoy old friendships, meet a record number of first-time attendees – and, as always, absorbing the excellent educational content.
