AECO’s 13th Arctic Cruise Conference brought together almost 100 participants in Oslo last month – among these were most of the international Arctic expedition cruise industry as well as government officials and other stakeholder connected to Arctic cruise tourism. A comprehensive program including issues such as cruise tourism updates on the different regions, industry issues, regulatory issues, crowd sourcing, search and rescue, industry clean-up efforts and citizen science. The Greenlandic part of the conference was opened by the Greenlandic Minister of Industry, Labor and Trade, Vittus Quiaukitsoq, who commended AECO on the organization’s work in regard to sustainable tourism. The conference was followed by the annual dinner at Restaurant DS Louise. Next year’s annual Arctic Cruise Conference will be held in Oslo on October 18th.
