City Nation Place Asia Pacific Conference

Across Asia, seismic shifts in the global status quo are injecting a new sense of urgency in terms of addressing place branding issues. Changing priorities and perceptions around the world are creating a unique opportunity for nations, cities, provinces and destinations in the Asia Pacific region to differentiate themselves on the world stage to deliver economic benefits.


The City Nation Place Asia Pacific Forum is designed to focus on these opportunities and address the associated challenges. Building on the expertise and knowledge gained through our Global and Americas conferences, this event will enable delegates to learn how to structure and implement place branding and marketing with a longer-term vision: how to engage all stakeholders, leverage your place’s assets and integrate communications to deliver more value.
