As the first in-person APRM after three years of the COVID-19 pandemic, the meeting will gather Members across the Asia Pacific region to share best practices, discuss future plans, and network with one another. 

With the theme of¬†‚ÄúTransforming WTC Operations in the Digital Age,‚ÄĚ the 2023 APRM will examine the huge impact of technology and innovation on WTC operations across the board from facilities¬†to¬†exhibitions to trade services.¬†Technology¬†accelerated over the¬†course of the¬†pandemic and¬†transformed¬†WTC businesses in both¬†the¬†short and long¬†term. At the same time,¬†the business connectivity and collaboration brought by the global WTCA¬†network¬†is important now more than ever¬†during¬†this transformation. The APRM will feature prominent keynote speakers to address the development and dynamics¬†of technology, and panels of WTC executives from¬†across¬†the region to share best practices¬†in order¬†to succeed in the new digital age.
