The Upcoming Events Reminder Service is a subscription service that highlights significant upcoming events--key dates, elections, holidays, strikes, etc.--providing subscribers having international interests with an advance notice of upcoming events. It is available as a quarterly or weekly via e-mail. Quarterly subscribers receive an e-mail that will be in their mail boxes prior to the start of each quarter. Weekly subscribers receive an e-mail that will be in their mail boxes Monday mornings when they arrive at work. This serves as a reminder to them of potential problem dates that might affect their people, operations, or travel. It is more comprehensive than any single "free" service--especially when you consider the value of the time you would have to spend checking them regularly to ensure completeness. And unlike the "free" services, not only are entries filtered out that are either outdated or really have no particular current importance, but the list is delivered to you.

Quarterly subscribers receive similar content, but without the benefit of events that are announced closer to their occurrence. Combining the quarterly and weekly subscriptions provides significant advance notification of upcoming events via the quarterly, with the benefit of the weekly's reminder and inclusion of additional events. Corporate officials, frequent travelers, expatriates, and others dealing on an international basis will find that the Upcoming Events Reminder Service will help to prevent an event that might otherwise have gone unnoticed from causing problems.

* While every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy and completeness of this list, users should be aware that national calendars differ, dates of observances may change, and holidays can be added or abandoned. Additionally, advance notice of strikes, demonstrations, or other events may not be sufficient for inclusion in this listing. Users should verify particular dates and events as they relate to a particular country and residence or planned travel there.
