WORLD BASC ORGANIZATION and BASC Colombia invite you to the upcoming BASC World Congress to be held September 19th and 20th in the beautiful colonial City of Cartagena, at the Hotel las Americas Convention Center.

The theme of the Congress is “Risk Management and Trust: The Road to Security and Competitiveness”. The speakers and panelists will focus their presentations on the critical role that trust plays in managing risks among partners. We believe it is the fundamental pillar in building security and competitiveness throughout the international supply chain.

The Congress will be the place where the most important companies engaged in the supply chain and commerce in the continent will meet, including more than 350 companies from 16 countries, interested in business development, security, trust and prosperity in teh Americas.

The goal is to strengthen cooperation between governments, customs, business and institutional organizations, the private sector and entities promoting security worldwide.
