A special thank you to the Brands participating in the 2014 Global Compliance Summit.  Many of these Brands will have a representative present at the Summit and have chosen to encourage participation among their Suppliers. 

Additionally, some of these Brands will hold a meeting (Brand Breakout) with their Suppliers during the summit.  Sumerra is updating Breakout information on the registration site as more meetings are finalized.  Be sure to check back in to see if your Brand is holding a Breakout.
