The 2019 Asia Pacific Cities Summit and Mayors' Forum

Thursday, 16 May 2019

The 2019 Asia Pacific Cities Summit (2019APCS) and Mayors’ Forum returns to Brisbane from 7-10 July. An initiative of Brisbane City Council, this premier business event is an opportunity for Australia’s local government representatives to network with global decision-makers and help shape the Asia Pacific region’s urban agenda.

The 2019APCS is a must-attend event for anyone interested in developing trade ties in one of the fastest-growing regions in the world. The Summit is expected to attract more than 1000 delegates representing 100 cities over four days. Mayors, city leaders, policy makers, CEOs, urban planners, and other business, industry and emerging leaders will meet in one place.

One of the not-to-be-missed highlights of the 2019APCS is a keynote presentation by co-founder of Netflix, Marc Randolph. Marc is responsible for helping to revolutionise the way people connect with their favourite movies and television shows. The Silicon Valley entrepreneur will headline the Summit’s first day on Monday 8 July. With first-hand insights on entrepreneurship, leadership and innovation, Marc’s presentation promises to be informative and inspiring.

This year’s focus is on Driving Cities through Business and Innovation. The Summit will be a platform for governments and businesses to identify a common agenda, improve city governance and promote trade and investment opportunities in the Asia Pacific region. The program will feature panel discussions with renowned speakers. Delegates will gain insights and participate in engaging conversations based on four sub-themes: Innovation of Cities, Mobility of Cities, Liveability of Cities and Sustainability of Cities.

The 2019APCS will also host the inaugural Innovation Alley. This dedicated exhibition space allows entrepreneurs, start-ups and new businesses to showcase how innovative technologies can enhance our cities’ liveability, mobility and sustainability. Attendees can also access Meet@APCS, a dedicated business program that will enable delegates to pre-arrange business meetings with local government representatives, potential partners, investors, clients and suppliers.

A range of registration options is available. To access all of the benefits on offer, visit and register now.
