The APCS is pleased to announce that 2019 Asia Pacific Cities Summit (2019APCS) and Mayors' Forum has been awarded 'Best Congress or Conference' at the 2020 Australian Event Awards!

This prestigious award is given annually to a congress or conference that best advances the aims of the organising body and provides a rewarding experience for attendees. It is an immense honour that the 2019APCS has been recognised as the best conference of the year in Australia. 

At the Australian Event Awards Ceremony on 21 October (which ran in a hybrid format across four different cities), the 2019APCS was announced as the winner of the Best Congress or Conference category among the five outstanding finalists. 

As an initiative of Brisbane City Council, the APCS was founded in 1996. Now 24 years young, the APCS has become the region's premier Summit that brings together one of the largest number of city leaders with the best and brightest in business. The APCS Summits are focussed on bringing business, industry and cities together to enable them to build relationships and effectively contribute to the success and sustainability of our cities into the future. 

The 2019APCS was the 12th Summit in its history and welcomed more than 1400 government, business and emerging leaders from 140 cities including 83 Mayors from across the Asia Pacific region. 

The APCS would like to thank all city leaders, delegates, speakers, exhibitors, partners, young professionals and volunteers for making the 2019APCS in Brisbane Australia's best conference of the year!
