Trade is Transportation Conference
Hilton Anchorage Hotel
November 22, 2013
For the 7th year, we are pleased to conduct the annual Trade is Transportation Conference. This event is a fast-paced forum where at one time, and in one place, attendees gain a statewide perspective on what's new in the field of Alaskan transportation and logistics. More than a dozen speakers from leading transportation organizations participate in the event.
Nine years ago we conducted our 1st Alaska-China Business Conference. Since then Alaska's trade with China has grown dramatically and reached $1.34 billion in 2012. Each year a group of experienced "China-Hands" gather in Anchorage to give their presentations at the conference. Among the speakers are U.S. and Chinese government officials, local businesspeople that share their experiences with "from the trenches" reports, academic faculty members presenting their research, and many others. WTCAK's Alaska-China Business Conference is one event that a person interested in China should not miss.
Come find out what's in store in 2014! This is a unique opportunity to gain a statewide perspective on the prospects in 2014 for Alaska's major industries, state and federal government spending, and how this will affect communities and jobs. You will also hear about the international picture and how it impacts Alaska. The luncheon is conducted in Fairbanks, Anchorage and Juneau.
This annual conference concentrates on the theme of international trade and business opportunities that flow from development of resources in the Arctic. Working from a context of who stands to benefit most - which regions, countries, industries and companies - panel discussions address issues such as supply chains, innovation, markets, commerce, and transportation. While policy and research inform the discussion, Arctic Ambitions concentrates on global markets, international trade and Arctic logistics. The inaugural conference in May 2012 brought together presenters from Canada, Finland, Korea, Norway, Russia, and Alaska.
Registration details are going to be announced soon!
