January 30-31, 2015


The second annual Arctic Encounter Symposium will challenge participants to tackle the shared interests and concerns of the United States and the global community as we look north to the last emerging frontier the Arctic. Leading experts, CEOs, and thought leaders from the science, technology, maritime and energy sectors, will gather to challenge the status quo dialogue, critically address challenges to realizing the Arctic’s full potential and collaborate on solutions. Participants will include key industry leaders, policy makers and regional stakeholders.

This year’s Symposium will focus on the role of the U.S. as an arctic nation and the challenges it will confront in its upcoming chairmanship of the Arctic Council, including: climate change, natural resources, investment opportunities and international relations. The goal of the 2015 Arctic Encounter is to facilitate a creative environment for the development of a proactive agenda, short and long-term domestic and international priorities and a strategic execution plan.

The two-day program will take place at the University of Washington with a dinner reception on
Friday, January 30, 2015 at the Museum of History and Industry.
