Brisbane proudly hosted the 2023 Asia Pacific Cities Summit (2023APCS) & Mayors' Forum from 11 to 13 October. This year’s Summit focussed on “Shaping cities for our future” and welcomed almost 1,200 delegates from a record-breaking 171 cities, including 118 Mayors and Deputy Mayors. Throughout the Summit delegates made new business connections and engaged in meaningful conversations around cities of sustainability, connection and legacy. World-class speakers including award-winning author and urbanist Charles Montgomery, President of the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games Organising Committee Andrew N. Liveris AO, world champion debater Bo Seo and Executive Chairman of Visy Anthony Pratt brought these themes to life as our keynote speakers.
