Changes in the shipping routes have placed Maine businesses on the doorstep of the Arctic and Northern Europe. Thanks to the addition of Eimskip, it now costs less to ship a container to Norway than it does to truck it to Maryland. Is your business ready to take advantage of these new opportunities?

In early October, more than 50 professionals from Maine will travel to the Arctic Council Assembly in Iceland, returning with a fresh take on opportunities for the business community here. Join us on Thursday, October 19, 2017 for a full day seminar exploring how your business or industry sector can take advantage of these opportunities.

Topics will include:

  • Transportation & Logistics
  • Business Support & Grants
  • Investment & Finance
  • Economic Landscape – Where can Maine industries compete? Aquaculture? Infrastructure? Breweries? Tourism?
  • Trade & Tax Issues

Please stay tuned for a full event agenda, including speakers. In the meantime, learn more about Verrill Dana’s involvement in the North Atlantic on our website: http://www.verrilldana.com/northatlanticandarctic/
