The Asia Pacific Network Operators Group Ltd (APNOG) is the non-profit entity which has assumed the responsiblity for the delivery of the annual APRICOT summit from the Asia Pacific Internet Association (APIA) as from the 1st July 2019.
The annual APRICOT Summit first took place in Singapore in January 1996, founded by leading figures in the Asia Pacific Internet industry. (More information on the APRICOT website.)
Following agreement by both parties in July 2002, in March 2003, the Asia Pacific Internet Association Ltd merged with the APRICOT Executive Committee to assume the ongoing responsibility for the delivery of the annual APRICOT Summit.
In October 2013, APIA moved operations to Australia, becoming an Australian registered company, Asia Pacific Internet Association Pty Ltd. And with APRICOT 2017, APIA assumed the financial responsibility for delivering the entire Summit (previously the responsibility lay with the host organisation), and rebranded its activities as APRICOT.
With the ongoing success of the Summit, the APRICOT Board agreed in March 2018 to transition to a non-profit entity, Asia Pacific Network Operators Group Ltd, with effect from 1st July 2019, the start of the Australian financial year.
Today, the APRICOT Summit is the responsibility of the APNOG Board of Directors, with APIA being the service entity managing the Summit on behalf of APNOG.
APNOG would like to acknowledge and thank APNIC for kindly agreeing to host this website.
