Business Opportunities - Meet@APCS

2023APCS & Mayors' Forum in Brisbane

"Connect your business with global audiences" 

The 2023APCS provided a unique business networking opportunity in the heart of Brisbane. Across three days, this event drew together people from key markets across Australia, as well as regions around the world, ensuring delegates walked away with new business leads and strategic connections. 

Opportunities that were available at the 2023APCS: 

  • Delegates were the first to hear about major tender-ready projects at the Major Project Announcement Briefings.
  • They could connect in-person and showcase their business to over 1,000 potential customers at the 2023APCS Market Square, an exhibition space that sold out months in advance.
  • Attendees could make introductions and organise meetings with others attending from 171 different cities via our bespoke APCS App.
  • Networking took place at a range of social events including the Opening Reception, Gala Dinner and Closing Lunch, as well as breaks throughout the program.
  • Delegates gained new insights on emerging city-shaping trends and issues from 180 industry-recognised speakers and facilitators.

Being part of an APCS will connect you to key leaders across the public and private sectors, including:

  • City mayors, councillors and CEOs
  • Local, state and federal government representatives
  • Peak body leaders
  • Policy makers 
  • Company CEOs and business leaders 
  • Emerging leaders, innovators and influencers. 


The 2023APCS App opened seven days before the Summit started and included functionality to request meetings in advance of arrival. Meeting suites were provided in the APCS Brisbane Pavilion, offering a convenient and accessible space for hosting. This app also remained open for 60 days after the Summit, to ensure delegates didn't lose their new connections.

Key functions of the APCS app allow you to:

  • View a digital version of the full Summit program
  • Take notes during the event which can be exported
  • Look up exhibitors and speakers
  • Scan the lanyards of fellow delegates via their individualised QR codes (to save their contact details)
  • Receive important event announcements.
