3rd Annual Confluence:

Summit on the outdoors

Sept. 12 - 13, 2018

Valdez

What is Confluence: The mission of Confluence is to connect and cultivate leaders in Alaska's outdoor recreation industry in order to create a more unified and impactful voice promoting and expanding the state's outdoor recreation industry and, in turn, improve state and local economies.

When and Where is Confluence: Confluence: Summit on the Outdoors adds a second day and a full business track when the conference returns to Valdez Sept. 12 - 13, 2018. Agenda will be posted by July 1. 

Why Attend Confluence: Because many voices are stronger than one. Confluence participants understand that preserving access to outdoor recreation protects the economy, businesses, communities and people who depend on the ability to play, hunt and fish outside. The goal of Confluence is to coalesce around goals and priorities that will best strengthen the state's under-appreciated outdoor economy.

Who Should Attend: Confluence invites all stakeholders in Alaska's outdoor recreation industry to attend: Motorized, non-motorized, sportsmen, hikers, bikers, air taxi services, backcountry lodges, public land managers, urban planners, healthcare professionals, tourism industry professionals, non-profits, and elected officials are all welcome.
