A note from our CEO

Rebuilding a Resilient Asia

"While the world reels from implications of pandemic proportions, we have also witnessed humanity coming together to support those most vulnerable.
Against the backdrop of social and economic vulnerabilities, the 8th AVPN Conference is choosing to respond in a constructive way.
More so than ever before, we need to be sensitive and accountable to our communities, reinforce support mechanisms, and build a resilient global community that is ready for whatever comes next.”

“I think the most exciting thing about this conference is the tangible sense that the space is evolved. AVPN has been really instrumental in making that happen. Folks are not just talking about what's exciting, but actually walking out the talk."
