23 – 25 May 2016, Hong Kong

After 3 successful years in Singapore, the AVPN Conference will move for the first time to Hong Kong. Hong Kong has the highest concentration of our members outside of Singapore and we are very excited to work with our local partners there to expand the base and also from mainland China. Hong Kong has a vibrant eco-system of progressive funders and social enterprises and we are looking forward to showcase this to the rest of Asia, and also to bring in more innovative models and methodologies to the market.

Please watch this space as we will launch the conference website by October 2015 and more information about the conference will be out then. For any queries on partnership and sponsorship, please contact [email protected]
