Since its establishment in 1996, the Asia Pacific Cities Summit (APCS) and Mayors' Forum continues to build on its success as the region's premier forum that brings together one of the largest number of city leaders with the best and brightest in business.
The APCS is a powerful hub for cities in the region to share ideas and solutions, to collaborate internationally and enable city and business leaders to express these ideas and solutions as one united voice.
Hosting the APCS represents an unprecedented opportunity to profile your city to the Asia Pacific and beyond. It is the best opportunity to engage with decision makers from the region and to help grow your economy. The Summit traditionally attracts more than 1000 key decision-makers and influencers from more than 100 cities across the Asia Pacific.
Further benefits from hosting the APCS include increased commercial opportunities for local business as delegates spend a minimum of three nights in the host city, generating revenue for local hotels, restaurants, shops and venues. Your local businesses and organisations also have the opportunity to attend the Summit and connect with business and government leaders from the Asia Pacific region. They will have the opportunity to attract investment and increase exports as valuable connections are formed. It has been shown that this Summit can generate a return on investment into the tens of millions of dollars.
Expressions of interest to host the 2021APCS are now open. To find out more or to register your interest, please contact the APCS Secretariat.
