"We were one of the first foundations to support AVPN, and so far we feel very positive about that investment. When I looked out at the size of the crowd (at AVPN 2019), I can't believe that this is brought together by an organisation that is still very young and I think you are a magnet in this region."

“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."
Head of Strategy and Innovation,
“Being with AVPN helped us better understand the different players in the ecosystem. It has also encouraged us to be better collaborators by playing our part as a universal bank that connects clients to opportunities.”

Amidst uncertainties in the light of COVID-19, AVPN will be continuing our efforts to run the Annual Conference 2020 in June. As we are aware of the implications of this decision, including the ability of our delegates to travel to Singapore, we will be closely monitoring developments over the next few weeks and be steered by the guidance provided by the Singapore government. As we work hard to develop a conference within the framework of these convening guidelines, we are also actively exploring alternate ways, including digital delivery, to augment your conference experience and achieve your networking objectives. Our hope is to continue strengthening the sector and supporting the work of our members in what is increasingly looking like unchartered territory with the repercussions of the Covid-19 pandemic still to be understood. We are optimistic that the timing for this year’s conference will also be a chance for the sector to come together and share learnings and ideas on ways to navigate in a world affected by the pandemic. Indeed, more so than ever before, we need to harness the strength of our members by moving more capital towards critical challenges that have been exacerbated by the virus. As we are a little more than 2 months from the conference, please do not hesitate to claim your conference tickets. We also encourage sponsors and partners to reach out to AVPN as we actively look to work with each and every member to support your goals over the next 12 months. Looking ahead, we are committed that the Annual Conference, as well as the other convenings that AVPN will host throughout the year, will continue to be your avenue for networking and collaboration.
