Trade Shows Are Back
By Christine Merki, Account Manager

ark your calendars, brush up on your social skills, and grab your lanyard! Tradeshow season is upon us. Next month, thousands of people from around the globe will file into downtown Anchorage for the trifecta of trade shows. This year’s lineup is being considered a contact sport, aka in-person. What makes a good trade show? People! Organizers are betting attendees will come back back in droves for the three major November events:

Alaska Miners Association will host its annual convention at the Dena’ina Center November 1-5. The four-day conference will showcase dozens of vendors and speakers, as well as offer short courses on the minerals industry and Mine Safety and Health Administration courses.

The Annual Alaska General Contractors of Alaska Conference is scheduled for November 10-13 at the Hotel Captain Cook. This group knows how to build—and how to throw a respectable after-hours soiree!

And the 41st Alaska Resources Conference, hosted by Resource Development Council, is scheduled for November 17-18, also at the Dena’ina Center. It will be teaming with industry leaders and experts on everything it takes to develop and drive resource development and Alaska’s economy.

If you do business with any of these businesses that heavily contribute to the state’s economy, it’s critical to advertise in this edition of the magazine, which is distributed at these events. Ad space for the November magazine closes on September 20. Contact me or your account manager for rates and to reserve your space.
