For 27 years, the AVCJ Forum has brought together leading investors from across the globe for three days of high-level dialogue, debate and networking. In a programme that combines strategic and practical issues, our delegates heard from some of the world's most successful deal makers as they shared their insights on the opportunities across Asia and globally.

5 reasons why they attended

  • Reviewed top performing markets, sectors and emerging trends for 2015
  • Heard from over 170 expert speakers who are driving activity in the region
  • Made use of the breadth of experience from over 1,000+ attendees including the top performing GPs and most active LPs in the industry
  • An opportunity to access exclusive networking facilities to capitalise on the largest private equity gathering in the region: dedicated networking lounges, a mobile networking app, cocktails and more!
