APK is the place where German and Asian Business interests meet

The 17th Asia-Pacific Conference of German Business (APK) – the leading German Business event in Asia-Pacific – will take place in the Grand Hyatt Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan on October 18 & 19, 2020. 
The 17th APK aims at attracting up to 1,000 participants, among them many high-ranking business executives and government representatives primarily from Germany and the Asia-Pacific region. The conference objective is to create an atmosphere for the attendees to discuss and promote economic relations between Europe’s biggest economy and the fastest growing region in the world. Thus, the conference provides a platform for dialogue and – as the biggest German networking event in the Asia-Pacific region – many opportunities to strengthen business and personal relations among the participants.
