Columbia, MD: June 6, 2014âThe Finance, Credit and International Business Association (FCIB), for the second year, will hold its International Credit Executives (ICE) Conference in conjunction with the National Association of Credit Managementâs (NACMâs) 118th Credit Congress & Exposition on June 8-11, 2013 at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort in Orlando, Florida. NACMâs Credit Congress provides a venue for both domestic and international credit professionals who extend business-to-business credit. Integrated into the larger Credit Congress schedule of events, this yearâs international sessions cover the unique features of international credit, supplier risk management, export compliance and fraud detection, and Asia, Latin America, the Middle East and Eastern Europe from the international credit perspective.
âThe purpose of FCIBâs ICE Conference is to expand the knowledge base for U.S. companies that are starting to export, and to further educate and provide tools for the advanced international credit management executive,â said Marta Chacon, CICP, FCIB Director - The Americas. âThe specially-designed sessions will address the pressing issues facing international trade professionals around the world, and provide the solutions that work in various international markets that will allow them to access the growing opportunities in global trade.â
The ICE Conference comes on the heels of FCIBâs annual International Credit and Risk Management Summit in Munich, Germany, held from May 11-13, and promotion of World Trade Month and World Trade Week events through its partnership with the U.S. Commercial Service. The partnership aims to make it easier for all U.S. companies to take advantage of exporting opportunities offered around the globe, with FCIB acting as a portal through which exporters can find the tools and resources they need. Under the partnership, FCIB has already played a role in the development of the third edition of the International Trade Agencyâs Trade Finance Guide, and the first Spanish-language version of the guide.
