Next AECO-IAATO Field Staff Conference will be held in Iceland October 1-4, 2017

December 1st, 2016

Save the dates! The biennial joint AECO/IAATO Field Staff conference dates have been set. Please save the dates 2-4 October, 2017 and be prepared to join us in Iceland for this exciting event. Based on wonderful premises outside Reykjavik, participants will be invited to involve in a comprehensive program under the heading “The Tourism Industry: Evolution and new Challenges.”

The conference is an invaluable tool for the field staff: A chance to come together to talk about subjects which they face every day in the field. It also creates a fantastic team atmosphere amongst the field staff and has led to outstanding communication and cooperation amongst the vessels during the Arctic and Antarctic seasons.

Participants should ideally fly in on October 1 and depart after 1600 on October 4.  Details of accommodations, transfers, and agenda will be sent out when finalized during the beginning of 2017.
