The exhibition hall at the APAC Forum is a place of hustle, gathering, sharing, and learning. In addition to the exhibition stands, coffee carts, and poster displays, it is also where you’ll find our ‘marketplace’.
The exhibition marketplace is an area you can come, get comfy, and listen to some quick oral presentations during your breaks. It’s just one more way we manage to cram so many prominent speakers, and so much valuable content, into a three-day event!
See it live!
