International Business Conference & Trade Show

Sheraton Anchorage Hotel 


Alaska’s Premier Arctic Business Event Focused Squarely on Trade, Commerce, and Investment in the Region. 

Four Ways Your Company Can Participate in 
Arctic Ambitions VI Conference & Trade Show 

This year, the theme of the conference is New Arctic Realities: The Path Forward. With this theme, we will highlight the following areas: transportation, technology and innovation, infrastructure development, natural resource exploration and production, international trade opportunities, finance and investment, pan-Arctic commerce, and the new political climate toward Arctic development under the Trump Administration. Register now and receive a $100 early bird discount. 
Arctic Ambitions conference focuses on a specific niche: the business of the Arctic.  At the event, presenters from major companies from across the Arctic and around the world focus on the challenges and opportunities they are facing, as well as their vision for sustainable development of the region. This is the premier Arctic business event in Alaska and each year we see an increasing number of business organizations and government agencies participating. We expect about 200+ attendees this year. If you are interested in presenting at the conference, please contact Greg Wolf, WTC Executive Director (greg@wtcak.org), to discuss your participation. 
For the second year, we are conducting a Trade Show as part of the conference. There will be 20 spaces for trade show booths. Each space is approximately 10 feet by 10 feet. This is an exceptional opportunity to promote your company’s products and services to an audience of business executives and government officials directly involved with Arctic development. Click here to purchase Trade Show Booth space. (WTC members receive a $100 discount for a two-day space rental)
Arctic Ambitions VI is a unique opportunity for your company to highlight its role as a major player in the development of the Arctic. Your sponsorship of the conference will send a clear signal that the Arctic is your company’s niche, and that you are involved in development projects in the region. Your company’s image will be linked in the minds of the participants with genuine knowledge and expertise in the Arctic, and you will be able to demonstrate how to operate there and build a success story.

All of our readers should consider putting Inuvik on their ‘bucket lists’! Try the surf and turf in a local restaurant: Arctic Char & Musk Ox!

What Arctic investor would wish to miss this conference?  Your publisher had the pleasure of chairing the 2002 gas pipeline portion of this conference–now a technology conference.  It is good to see Inuvik recognize the reality of Shale Oil And Gas competition–as it begins to refashion its challenged economy by reinventing itself.  How much has changed since gas pipelines were the major issues!  We wonder if Alaska’s governor will similarly recognize that old worlds ultimately give way to new ones!                                            -dh
