Since it was first organized in 2016, the Joint Arctic SAR Workshop and TTX has established itself as the most important forum for exchange and joint training for SAR entities and the Arctic expedition cruise industry. The event allows participants to engage in frank discussions and gain valuable insight into the perspective and operational mode of the entities they will deal with in the event of an emergency. This joint SAR event gathers expedition cruise operators, Arctic search and rescue (SAR) responders and other relevant stakeholders for a tabletop exercise and workshop aimed at enhancing dialogue and cooperation between the cruise industry and the SAR sector in the Arctic. The event also features presentations from practitioners and researchers with updates on the latest developments in maritime preparedness, policy, technology and SAR  cooperation.
