The 2021 edition of APB Summit is a hybrid event, where we will be hosting a live conference at the Island Shangri-La in Hong Kong on Tuesday, 1 December 2021, with a virtual stream running concurrently for selected sessions, allowing those not able to travel to Hong Kong to attend the event in person to still experience the content.

What are the types of attendee passes available?

All Access Pass: The All Access Pass is suitable for Hong Kong-based attendees, who will gain physical access to exclusive C-Suite panels and interviews, exhibitor booths, product workshops and live networking with other participants.

What measures are being taken to ensure my safety to reduce the risk of the spread of Covid-19?

To ensure the safety of all of our attendees, clients, and staff, APB Summit 2021 will comply with health protocols put in place by the HK Government, and our venue partner, Island Shangri-La, Hong Kong.

These measures include:

  • Mandatory QR code scanning via the “LeaveHomeSafe” mobile application
  • Temperature checks will be conducted prior to entry to the event. Individuals with a temperature above 37.5 degrees Celsius and/or those that display flu-like symptoms will be denied entry
  • Face masks must be worn throughout the duration of the event
  • Enhanced cleaning and disinfection of the premises

In addition, we ensure that we only partner with a Venue that implements and observes the latest advice and regulations from the HK Government. All venue staff and working staff must provide a negative COVID-19 test result once every 14 days or have completed a COVID-19 vaccination course, recognised for use in Hong Kong.

Do I need to produce a negative Covid-19 test result to attend the event?

No, a negative Covid-19 test result is not required for attendees to attend the event.

Do I need to be vaccinated against Covid-19 to attend the event?

Proof of vaccination is not required, but due to social gathering restrictions issued by the HK Government, which determine the total number of physical attendees that are allowed for the staging of live events, we will be asking for your vaccination status upon registration. This will not determine your confirmation to the event, but will simply indicate to us and our venue partner the total seating capacity permitted for the staging of this year’s APB Summit in Hong Kong.

Please be rest assured, your response will be treated in confidence and will not be shared with any regulatory authorities.

Can I walk-in and attend the live event at the Island Shangri-La?

No, all participants must be pre-approved prior to the event. Due to gathering restrictions issued by the HK Government, we are only able to accommodate attendees who have been pre-approved to attend the event.

What is the dress code?

​​Business attire.

Are you hosting a luncheon following the event?
Unfortunately, due to local venue guidelines, we will not be offering a luncheon for APB Summit 2021. The consumption of food and beverage is not permitted throughout the duration of the event, unless otherwise stated by Asian Private Banker in designated areas. Asian Private Banker and venue staff reserve the right to confiscate such items.

What if there are changes to the live event due to Covid-19?

Asian Private Banker will communicate with you via your registered email should there be changes to the running of APB Summit 2021 as a result of government advice relating to live events.
