PwC Customs Festival

PwC global festival of customs and international trade

Monday, April 12, 2021
08:00 to 17:30

PwC are delighted to invite you to their festival of customs and international trade, a fully virtual event allowing you to connect and share experiences without the need to travel. 

With emergency responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, trade wars, Brexit, a change at the helm of the World Trade Organization, significant new trade agreements like RCEP and the TCA, the incredible pace of change in customs and international trade shows no sign of slowing down. Over a period of four weeks customs and international trade specialists at PwC and from around the globe will share their experiences, ideas and insights with you, and help you navigate an ever-increasing web of regulations and controversy efficiently, effectively and successfully.


This festival will start on Monday, April 12 and runs until Friday, May 7. Each week will have a theme, and provide both global, regional and national content. There will be anchor sessions throughout the four weeks, supplemented with a whole range of other contributions, be they panel discussions, technology demos, case sharing, thought leadership pieces and so on and so forth. The first three weeks will be topical, with the fourth week set aside to host “virtual client meetings”.


Registration for these anchor sessions are now open. All sessions will be broadcast at 9am GMT with a link to the recording available immediately afterwards, allowing you to watch at your convenience. Please register below:
