AECO EL-conference 2013

June 20th, 2013

AECO has received significant funding from Norwegian – Danish Fund and from NORA to organise an expedition leader and guide conference for AECO-members. The conference will find place at Schäffergården north of Copenhagen Oct 17 – 20, 2013 and more than 40 participants and almost 20 speakers are expected to participate. This is the second time AECO gathers so many “polar” expedition leaders and guides from many different countries, representing a broadness of AECO members. A comprehensive and interesting program will include issues related to cruise operations in different Arctic regions, like environmental -, local/cultural – and safety consideratons. Speakers include researchers, government officials, specialists and others with competence on Arctic cruise tourism.
