The APCS, the Asia Pacific's landmark event for city leaders and those involved in the cities, is returning to Brisbane in 2023. The 2023 Asia Pacific Cities Summit (2023APCS) and Mayors' Forum will be held in Brisbane from 11 - 13 October 2023 under the theme of 'Shaping Cities for our Future".
The 2021 Asia Pacific Cities Summit and Mayors' Forum Special Edition (2021APCS Special Edition) , which was held in Brisbane, Home of the APCS, from 8 - 12 September 2021, has successfully concluded.
Conceived and managed by Brisbane City Council, the Asia Pacific Cities Summit and Mayors' Forum (APCS) is an internationally acclaimed, award-winning gathering of city and business leaders from across the Asia Pacific and beyond. For 25 years, APCS has provided immense opportunities for connection, learning and relationship-building between civic and business sectors.
The 2021APCS Special Edition utilised the latest-generation technology and for the first time, took place in a hybrid format - physically for local attendees and virtually for those outside of Queensland. The Summit welcomed more than 700 physical and virtual delegates representing 74 cities including 51 Mayors and Deputy Mayors for the Summit. Through the new virtual platform, the 2021APCS Special Edition was still able to welcome delegates from the Asia Pacific and beyond who were unable to attend in person.
