Encompassing a vast array of businesses, organisations and enterprises throughout the region, we endeavour to ensure that only the most deserving are recognised, and judged purely on their merits.

The steps may be tentative at first, however, there are sure-fire signs of irreversible growth for the region’s key industries, and that is down to the sheer amount of perseverance and effort from everyone involved! GDP growth has also proved readily stable throughout the pandemic, with the Asian economy contracting by only 1.5 per cent in 2020, compared to the overall global economy shrinking by 3.2 per cent. Expectations are high for the economies in this region, which are returning to pre-pandemic levels. At the same time, the disruption caused by COVID has brought lasting effects in the forms of hybrid work set-up and rapid digitisation, prompting organisations to rethink their strategies. The APAC Business Awards 2022, hosted by APAC Insider, aims to showcase and secure your business’s position as a true leader and trend-setter throughout the region, as well as informing potential clients and colleagues that you are providing an award-winning service!
