2019APCS Highlights

2019APCS & Mayors' Forum - "Driving Cities through Business and Innovation"

The 12th Asia Pacific Cities Summit (2019APCS) & Mayors' Forum, held in Brisbane, Australia - the home of the APCS event, has officially concluded. From the 7th - 10th July, the Summit welcomed more than 1400 government, business and emerging leaders from 140 cities to Brisbane, and included 83 Mayors among the representatives. This was the highest number of delegates and cities in attendance for an onshore Summit to date, further cementing the APCS as one of the leading forums in the Asia Pacific region. 

Over four days, delegates made new business connections, engaged in meaningful conversations about the innovation, mobility, liveability and sustainability of cities, and heard from inspiring speakers. The 2019APCS offered an extensive program featuring 196 presenters, including keynote speakers: Marc Randolph, Co-founder of Netflix, Andreas Weigend, Former Chief Scientist of Amazon and Peggy Liu, Chairperson of the Joint US China Collaboration on Clean Energy (JUCCCE). 

The 2019APCS Mayors' Forum enabled city leaders to discuss urban challenges and opportunities in line with the Summit's sub-themes, while sharing solutions on how positive changes can affect the growth of cities across the Asia Pacific region. These discussions were incorporated into the 2019APCS Mayors' Accord, which was signed by attending Mayors and city leaders on the final date of the Summit.
