As the largest city in Alaska and home to one of the nation's 19 "strategic" seaports, Anchorage was the site of the American Association of Port Authorities' (AAPA) 97th Annual Convention and Exhibition, Sept. 21-25. The "North to Alaska"-themed convention, held in Anchorage's brand-new downtown Dena'ina Civic & Convention Center, attracted hundreds of seaport and maritime transportation leaders, industry experts and service providers to participate in a business agenda that featured many of the seaport industry's key issues and top executives.
