GoAP 2021 Annual Conference

The Glocalization Organization of Asia Pacific will hold its second annual conference online in a browser in front of you on March 9-10, 2021! Registration is now open.

Way back in March 2020 at the onset of the pandemic—this of course was when we were still calling Covid-19 an epidemic instead of a pandemic—we made a strategic decision to hold our annual conference virtually. While other industry organizations were still holding out hope that an in-person event could still be held in 2020, we made the wise and prescient—albeit at the time a difficult—decision to go virtual.

From that point on, we set out to deliver a unique virtual experience. The 2021 Annual Conference will continue to deliver unique learning experiences from new presentations that have never been presented elsewhere, to new voices and perspectives from speakers who are relatively new to the ‘conference circuit’.

Sponsors
GoAP would like to thank the generous support of our sponsors.

Sponsorship
Sponsorship opportunities are available.

GoAP sponsorship is radically different from sponsorship opportunities with other organizations in that GoAP does not just feature your logo, make a couple announcements, and stop there. We work with our sponsors as if they are business partners to help further their goals in marketing, exposure, and outreach. Unlike other organizations that have tote bag sponsorship, name badge sponsorship, Wifi sponsorship, keycard sponsorship, breakfast sponsorship, we at GoAP like to keep things simple. We offer Platinum, Gold, and Silver sponsorships. For details, please see the Sponsorship page.

Venue and Special Events
The 2021 Annual Conference will be held virtually via our partner’s cutting-edge conference platform. Our second annual conference will feature special musical guests.

 

Dress Code
Business casual attire, from the waist up, is encouraged. 🙂

This event is hosted by the Glocalization Organization of Asia Pacific (GoAP), with support from EUATC.
