We are very excited to announce something new for this year's symposium - Speed Meetings! This is an opportunity for your business or organization to meet one-on-one with some key organizations and mining companies. Participation is open to any registered delegate and each meeting will last 7 minutes - long enough for participants to ask their questions, describe their product, and engage the targeted company. Bookings can be made through Jen Hayward at jen@outcrop.com.

Book your speed meeting with:
Patrick Borbey, President, Canadian Northern Economic Development Agency and Chair, Arctic Council Senior Arctic Officials
Ryan Barry, Executive Director, Nunavut Impact Review Board
