An initiative of Brisbane City Council, the three-day Asia Pacific Cities Summit (APCS) drives economic growth for Brisbane - Australia’s new world city - South East Queensland and the wider Asia Pacific region. Held biennially, the host city alternates between Brisbane and bidding international cities. The 2009 APCS was held in Incheon, Korea, and in 2011 the Summit will be held at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre from Wednesday 6 to Friday 8 July 2011.
In its 14-year history, the APCS has become one of the region’s premier business and civic forums. In recent years the Summit has been used as a springboard for global cities and businesses to gain entry into the rapidly growing Asia Pacific markets.
Under the theme ‘The Business of Cities’, the 2011 APCS will focus on business growth, trade, investment and economic outcomes for participating delegates and sponsors and developing partnerships between local, national and international government agencies and the private sector.
The biennial Summit is a Brisbane City Council initiative delivered by working with the Queensland Government as its Principal Partner to drive economic growth for Brisbane, the State, the Asia Pacific region and beyond.
