The AMLFC Institute-ComplianceAid Combo conference package provides access to a leading 3-day conference highlighting the emerging trends in AML/CFT, and their impact on Sole Proprietors, Corporate Boards, Compliance officers, and Executives across the region.

On the first day, starting April 5th, the AMLFC Institute will host experts providing practical knowledge for executing or administering AML/CFT procedures; CPE for maintaining AMLFC certification will be rewarded for attendance. The number of attendees for the AMLFC Institute conference will be limited so that conference participants will directly interact with the experts facilitating the focused sessions.

The ComplianceAid Conference, hosted April 6th - 7th, provides world class educational and networking experiences. Conference sessions are designed and specially tailored for participants to leverage global perspectives for informed decision making and success in AML/CFT Governance. This is the only conference providing officers and executives with cutting edge solutions to address the issues faced by the regulated entities, regulators, and government agencies of the Latin American and Caribbean region.

At the conclusion of the conference, attendees will be equipped with a strong professional network and the knowledge necessary to identify and address AML/CFT risk within their individual organizations to operate globally.

For a third year, the Conrad Hotel has been selected as the conference venue. The luxury property is located in the heart of Miami’s booming Brickell district. Brickell is Miami and South Florida's major financial district. Referred to as the "Manhattan of the South", it is home to the largest concentration of international banks in the United States.  Brickell is a dense, high-rise residential neighborhood with many upscale luxury condominiums and apartment towers and is home to several of Miami's top restaurants, shops and places of entertainment. A discounted group rate of US$259 per night plus taxes is available to conference participants. The conference organizer has secured free internet access in the conference hall and guest rooms. Complimentary transportation to nearby malls will be available at the end of the conference.
