In addition, USMEF’s international directors will present market updates, and USMEF will unveil its strategic marketing plan. USMEF BOD meetings allow members to learn about the challenges and opportunities facing the export markets and to give their input on the future direction of USMEF marketing programs.

The meeting also offers many opportunities to network during breaks, meals and receptions. The Hyatt Regency San Antonio’s central location puts you in the middle of the action, in sight of the world famous Alamo and next to San Antonio’s famed River Walk.
