The APEC CEO Summit is the most influential meeting of business and government in the Asia Pacific. The forum provides opportunities for governance, chief executives and world business leaders to engage with each other and with leaders of the APEC economies on key trade and economic issues facing the region.

In 2021, as a result of Covid 19, the event was adapted to become a fully virtual Summit for the first time. Using the latest broadcast technology, satellite events and an impressive, interactive studio set in the Aotea Centre, the event connected audiences across 21 APEC economies, providing an “as-live” experience to thousands of attendees across multiple time zones. An innovative digital platform allowed participants access to a world-class line-up of presenters; engaging panel discussions; as well as the opportunity to interact with each other, regardless of location.

Live on-air for 16 hours across two days, in the words of Stephen Colbert it was most definitely one of our “top ten CEO Summits” too! Chur.
