Thank you for your understanding and patience.

The seventh annual Arctic Encounter Symposium will take place in an expanded venue space at the Bell Harbor International Conference Center on Pier 66 in downtown Seattle in April 2020. The 2019 Arctic Encounter Seattle drew over 300 participants from over 20 nations, including over 80 speakers, 27 sponsors, 17 media partners, northern fashion and photography installations, 13 guest performers, the second annual Far North fashion show, and artist exhibitors.

The 2020 Arctic Encounter Seattle expects to increase engagement in new sectors and engage participants through policy debates, research presentations, performances, and more. The two-day Arctic Encounter Seattle will include an opening reception, two continental breakfasts, two keynote luncheons, a networking reception with Alaskan glacier ice cocktails, and a seated three course dinner including keynotes and live musical entertainment from the Far North. The Arctic Encounter is the largest annual Arctic policy and business conference convening in the United States, with partnerships and convening efforts worldwide.
