The annual conference is the focus event of the year. The Asia Pacific Quality Organisation (APQO), is organising the APQO 2023 conference.

COVID-19 has had huge impact on our traditional in-person conferences. In 2021 & 2022, the conference was totally re-engineered to be fully digital.

We missed networking in digital conferences. This conference in Nepal in November 2023 with the participation from all member countries will be the first opportunity for us to meet face-to-face after 3 years.

Participants will experience
a superb learning opportunity!

These include:

An International conference
Excellent exposure for you and your ideas
Assistance to make an impactful presentation
