Event Type: 
Conferences and Workshops
When: 
10 July 2013 to 12 July 2013
Where: 
Anchorage, Alaska

The 3rd Airship Workshop will follow up the achievements of last year's workshop by focusing on potential approaches and actions that would facilitate establishing strong cargo airship business commitments to serving customers in Alaska and other Northern areas. Workshops will consider specific actions that may be initiated.

Discussions will include:

  • Establishment of one or more formal airship users groups to represent an aggregation of potential airship services users.
  • Federal or State government contracting approaches that could provide cargo airship operators with formal commitments to use airship services.
  • Public/private airship investment opportunities in airship infrastructure and airship developing companies to facilitate construction of necessary airships and their operational support facilities.
