    About the Conference

    October 10 - October 12, 2021

    A good reputation is everything. Without it, a business won’t be a business for very long. Compliance officers are the reputation guardians that keep their firm operating within the confines of financial regulation and free from conflicts of interest that could endanger that reputation.

    Our 2021 Conference is an event you won’t want to miss. We’re bringing the best and brightest from the world of compliance—including STAR staff from the c-suite to the developer suite. You’ll be able to meet, mingle, listen, and discuss ways to get the most out of STAR and your compliance program.

    Of course, we won’t have the best and brightest without you. The people on the front lines of compliance with the best working knowledge of STAR’s Platform. As you look to us for guidance on optimizing your compliance program, we’ll be looking to you for guidance on optimizing STAR.


Numerous education sessions and coordinated learning tracks filled with knowledge and insights.


Abundant opportunities to meet, mingle, engage, and network in formal and informal settings.


Breakout discussions regarding platform best practices, pain points and general compliance challenges.


Impactful thought leaders offering unique perspectives on compliance and the direction of the industry.



Check out the following four reasons to attend, with rapturous supporting commentary from past attendees. Better yet, don't even take their word for it. Find out for yourself how fun and informative a StarCompliance US Conference can be.
