Arctic Business

Launched in 2013, the Arctic Business initiative strives to engage the business community of the circumpolar north through a biennial business conference held in Bodø, Norway; a high-level Arctic Business Council; and an Arctic Business Secretariat addressing key issues year-round. It is an arena created for knowledgeable players to come together, to develop new business opportunities, and shape the way forward.

The Arctic Institute is partnering with Arctic Business to better communicate with prominent and emerging business leaders across the Arctic through managing strategic publication of analytical articles and fostering discussion of critical issues on social media.

Connecting Current and Future Business Leaders

Logo of conference

As part of cooperation with the High North Dialogue, future leaders of the Arctic will join the present Arctic Business leaders for an engaging and thought-provoking session at this year’s Arctic Business Conference.

Through social media leading up to the conference, The Arctic Institute will engage both current and future leaders of the Arctic business community through virtual debates, polls, and updates about the conference to better prepare participants for the opportunity to work together in May.

Fostering Cross-Industry Dialogue

Cooperation is the key to success in the region – working together and sharing knowledge, best practices and ideas. Arctic Business does this by gathering players from across industries, companies and countries to complete the puzzle and find the optimal way forward.

With the help of The Arctic Institute, Arctic Business is developing content for its website to analyze industry-specific and shared challenges in the High North for energy, shipping, infrastructure, seafood, search and rescue, technology and communications, and Arctic brands.
