CEO of the Year Awards (2024)
The APAC CEO of the Year Awards are back for the third year. This prestigious awards program recognises and congratulates hardworking CEOs dedicated to innovation and success in the Asia-Pacific region.
APAC Insider is proud to host this annual award that offers a globally renowned platform for CEOs. The APAC region will confidently continue to strengthen its economy in 2024 and is expected to show no signs of slowing down. It is predicted that countries within the APAC region will have some of the fastest-growing economies.
The APAC region is home to almost a third of the world’s population and contributes to over 60% of the global economy. This region has a considerable influence on the world stage. In recent years, the region has experienced steady economic growth, and in the post-pandemic era, these countries have shown remarkable levels of recovery. It is predicted that by 2025, the Asia Pacific region will reclaim its position as the largest regional travel market. Additionally, consumer spending is expected to shift, and discretionary spending is likely to return.
The remarkable success and prosperity of APAC countries can be attributed to their embrace of AI and digital technologies. Experts predict that APAC will emerge as the leading region in the AI race, given that 30% of organisations within the region are expected to reap significant benefits from the introduction of AI technologies. Additionally, the introduction of GenAI will be yet another innovation that will help APAC stay ahead of its international counterparts. While new technologies and digitization come with risks, organisations that approach them with confidence and careful strategic planning will reap the rewards of these innovations. By blazing new trails and embracing new technologies, companies in the APAC region will help to propel the region onto the world stage for AI. All these points reflect the region’s bold and confident approach to innovation and exploration. 2024 is promised to be an exciting time to explore and experiment with innovative technologies and trends. Although challenges may arise, the APAC region has a strong history of overcoming obstacles.
The APAC CEO of the Year Awards 2024 is a prestigious recognition that honours the accomplishments of CEOs who have made significant contributions to their organisations and the Asia-Pacific region. This award provides CEOs with an opportunity to demonstrate their exceptional leadership skills and be acknowledged for their hard work and dedication. Regardless of the industry or specialisation, the APAC CEO of the Year Awards 2024 is the perfect platform for showcasing the best CEOs in the region.

Australian Enterprise Awards (2024)
APAC Insider is excited to announce the return of the Australian Enterprise Awards for an eighth consecutive year! Australia represents nearly a quarter of our 105,000-strong circulation base, and so over the years we have been committed to shining a light on the very best of Australian business.
Australia is known for its diverse and resilient economy, with the country experiencing an uninterrupted period of growth over the three decades prior to the COVID-19 outbreak of 2020. In the years following the pandemic, Australian industry has experienced various challenges but has been recovering at a quicker rate than many of the world’s other top economies. In fact, Australia currently ranks as the twelfth largest GDP worldwide, which it has achieved despite its much smaller population in comparison to the countries placing higher in the list.
Australia’s economy generates over $4.5 trillion in output, with the Manufacturing sector being the biggest contributor to this at a fifteen percent share of total output. In terms of revenue, Banking and Finance is Australia’s biggest industry, generating over $360 billion in 2023. Today’s financial landscape is increasingly turbulent, with volatile inflation rates, stunted revenue growth, rising funding costs, and regulatory issues just a few of the challenges faced by the sector. These hurdles do, however, also present a lucrative opportunity to those who can adapt to changing customer demands and fulfil the latest technology and sustainability standards that are transforming the Finance industry.
Technology and digital adoption are a major influence not just on Finance, but on multiple segments of the Australian business landscape. The Healthcare and Retail sectors are both evolving rapidly, with digitalisation at the core of this transformation. Companies who can effectively harness developments in automation, data analytics, and personalisation will improve their efficiencies, drive growth, and provide a more streamlined customer experience. A 2020 survey of CEOs by professional services group PwC showed that 73% of Australian CEOs view the speed of technological change as an obstacle to their business growth. This statistic reveals just how much a company can benefit if they are able to stay on top of this trend and implement digital technology into their operations ahead of their competition.
Through the Australian Enterprise Awards 2024, APAC Insider will recognise the key players driving innovation across the variety of sectors that make up Australia’s dynamic business market. We consider submissions from large organisations and SMEs, at company and individual level, and use a strict merit-based approach to assess all nominees.
Those successful in the programme will be provided with a free-of-charge marketing toolkit to celebrate their award. As well as this, APAC Insider also offers the chance to upgrade to one of our bespoke commercial packages, for those really looking to get the most out of their success. These include extended coverage in the dedicated Australian Enterprise Awards supplement, as well as a range of physical and digital winners’ items designed to maximise the promotional benefits of inclusion.

Australian Made Awards (2023)
We are pleased to announce that, after a very successful first instalment, the Australian Made Awards 2023 are returning once again! Organised by APAC Insider, a leading brand that covers the latest news, insights, and trends in the Asia-Pacific region, the awards celebrate the excellence, creativity, and resilience of Australian businesses across the production and manufacturing industries.
By entering the Australian Made Awards 2023, you will be able to showcase your products and services to a regional audience of industry professionals. These awards are the perfect opportunity for you to gain recognition and credibility for your hard work and achievements in the manufacturing and production industries in Australia.
The manufacturing and production industries in Australia are facing unprecedented challenges and opportunities in 2023. The global pandemic, trade tensions, environmental & geopolitical issues, digital transformation, and changing consumer preferences are reshaping the landscape and creating new demands and expectations.
The entire APAC region is continuing its impressive rebound from the effect of global lockdowns. While only 6.8% of Australia’s population is employed in manufacturing, it looks poised to see positive flow-on effects from the surging APAC region. Ongoing market instabilities will drive more than half of Australian businesses to bring back overseas manufacturing jobs to Australia in high volumes.
To succeed in this dynamic environment, Australian businesses need to adapt, innovate, and differentiate themselves from the competition. That’s why APAC Insider is honouring the best of the best in the Australian manufacturing and production scene with the Australian Made Awards 2023.
The awards process is straightforward; alongside nominations, we have our dedicated in-house research team that analyse businesses they think deserve to be recognised for their achievements. Using this method means that, regardless of industry or size, businesses can be judged on a level-playing ground.
This awards programme is completely free to enter and if your firm is lucky enough to be successful, you will be presented to our circulation of 105,000 and promoted on our official website for a minimum of 12 months.
In addition, our awardees are welcome to choose from our range of competitively priced promotional opportunities to increase exposure of the good news!
