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.
Hosting the APCS represents an unprecedented opportunity to profile your city to the Asia Pacific region. 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.
Showcase your city’s latest urban development projects, profile the capabilities of local business and draw from the ideas of your future leaders.
