Top 8 Reasons You Should Get to Confluence

Updated: Mar 4

1 Networking. Meet the people you need to thrive. State, federal and tribal public land managers, culture, tourism and economic development leadership, businesses, planners, elected leaders and others engaged in all aspects of the outdoor economic cluster gather at Confluence.

2 Unlock your community’s economic potential. Amid climate-impacted ecosystems, shifting economic and political realities, this year’s Summit is designed to elevate priorities, iterate solutions and forge collaborations to improve today, inform tomorrow and enable a more prosperous and regenerative future.

3 Identify and help shape legislative priorities. Together, we will identify opportunities and work through solutions for regulatory reform, policy, and funding mechanisms that can help strengthen the outdoor recreation sector so our businesses, communities, and public lands and waters flourish.

4 Together we are a force. As we can work to strengthen our community connections to public lands, we begin to shift perspectives and the balance of power when it comes to charting a collective future where fish, wildlife, our rapidly evolving landscape, and people all thrive. Share your thoughts with peers who are as dedicated as you are to strengthening Alaska's outdoor business ecosystem.

5 Decision-makers. Plain and simple, Confluence attracts leaders. In 2023, Confluence welcomed Sen. Lisa Murkowski, Raina Thiele from the Department of Interior, Julia Hnilicka from USDA Rural Development, plus leaders and culture bearers from Chilkoot Indian Association, Klukwan, Champagne and Aishihik First Nations as well as Yukon tourism and economic development

6 Kinetic Breakouts. At Confluence, you'll have a choice of Learning Journeys during our Kinetic Breakouts. You'll be able to walk, hike or bike as locals showcase places and projects where regenerative economic development approaches can be explored.

7 Location location location. There's no better place to inspire regenerative thinking than the Anchorage Museum. The Anchorage Museum sits on the traditional homeland of the Eklutna Dena’ina and is committed to recognizing and honoring the land, culture and language of the Dena’ina people. The museum recognizes and respects the continuing connection, by Alaska Native people and all Indigenous people, to land, waters and communities.

8 You. It's the people in the room who have built Confluence's reputation as the place big ideas take flight. Will you join us?
