The Polar Research and Policy Initiative (PRPI) and the Arctic Encounter have partnered to host the first Arctic Encounter London in January 2019 on the theme: 'UK-US Maritime, Aerospace and Security Cooperation in the Arctic'. The conference is trade- and security-oriented, and is designed to deepen the unique relationship between the United Kingdom and the United States by strengthening trade and cooperation in four areas in particular: maritime services, aerospace, fisheries, and defense and security.
The conference will be held at the Palace of Westminster, the Naval and Military Club and the Reform Club. To allow for more engaged and productive discussion, the number of attending and participating delegates will be limited. Therefore, PRPI and the Arctic Encounter encourage timely registration. Invited participants include Ministers, Lords, MPs, Senators, Congressmen, Governors, Mayors, Ambassadors, senior officers from the Armed Forces, government officials, recognized academic experts and senior corporate executives. A confirmed list of speakers and sponsors will be updated to the event page on a rolling basis.
