Mastering the new future for tax and trade

On behalf of KPMG's Tax practice, we would like to thank all the attendees of the 2019 U.S. Cross-Border Tax Conference for making it an exciting and well-attended event.

The conference is KPMG's premier tax event for our clients. Its goal is to explore critical tax and trade issues that are important to our multinational clients operating in today's ever-changing marketplace. We hope we succeeded in providing stimulating and instructive sessions and created opportunities for you to network with your tax and trade executive peers, KPMG Tax advisers, and Tax partners from KPMG International's network of member firms.

About the conference

KPMG has hosted the U.S. Cross-Border Tax Conference for more than 10 years. The conference has grown steadily with more than 420 tax executive delegates attending our 2019 conference in addition to a similar number of KPMG delegates. Our clients note several reasons why they look forward to attending each year:

  • Highly rated technical program. Feedback after prior conferences has been very positive. Both the general and breakout sessions are regularly described as “timely” and “relevant.”
  • CPE credits available. You may qualify for up to 16 CPE credits.
  • Access to KPMG’s Tax professionals. The conference allows you to meet a broad range of KPMG professionals to whom you may not have regular, local access: Tax and Trade practice leaders, Washington National Tax luminaries, and Tax partners from KPMG International member firms from countries around the world.
  • Time for private client meetings. Meeting space is available throughout the conference for you to meet with your KPMG client service team.
  • Peer-to-peer networking. The conference offers ample time during meals, breaks, and conference activities for you to meet and network with your peers from other companies.


The agenda for the 2019 U.S. Cross-Border Tax conference covered topics that are critical to organizations operating in today's global marketplace.

Presenters were from KPMG and KPMG International member firms, as well as guest presenters, including client corporate tax executives who kindly agreed to share their knowledge and experiences.
