About APAC - Asia Pacific Automotive Engineering Conference
The Asia Pacific Automotive Engineering Congress exists to advance the development of automotive engineering and the automobile industry internationally.
Held every two years, APAC provides excellent opportunities for automotive experts to present the latest product and development innovations and to exchange information in the field of mobility, connected cars and automotive technology as a global challenge for industry, users and society.
The inaugural APAC was held in Honolulu, Hawaii in 1981 under the name International Pacific Conference on Automotive Engineering. It was initiated by four countries, the U.S., Indonesia, Australia, and Japan. South Korea and China joined the following year, Thailand, Vietnam, and Sri Lanka in the 1990s, India in 2004, and Iran in 2005, with a total of 11 countries now represented.
The name was changed to the Asia Pacific Automotive Engineering Conference in 2007 to help attract new participants from the Asian region.
