Asia-Pacific Weeks Berlin 2017: Asia-Europe Dialogue on Digitalization


The 12th Asia-Pacific Weeks (APW) took place from May 15th to 28th, 2017. Following the re:publica (May 8th-10th), the Global Innovation Gathering (GIG, May 13th & 14th) and the CUBE Tech Fair (May 10th-12th), the APW 2017 with the guiding theme “Digitalization” formed the international climax and conclusion of the startup month of May. The alumni summer school about “Best Practice for E-mobility within the Energy Revolution”(May 16th-23th) of the TU Berlin complemented the program of the APW.
The central events of the 12th APW concentrated in the first week. Experts and players from Europe and Asia discussed the status quo and trends of digitalization, interdisciplinary possibilities of its use as well as visionary innovations. During the second week, visitors had the chance to participate in a variety of cultural events, shows, and exhibitions.
The APW celebrated their 20-year anniversary and attracted more than 2000 participants for the business conferences and cultural program. Exploring the 4th Industrial Revolution and its future impact on economies and society is crucial for governments and the civil society worldwide. Experts from the fast-growing and high-tech affine regions of Asia-Pacific discussed their perspectives with local representatives. With the conference “Connecting Startup Cities”, the APW built on the successful conference formats of 2015 and 2016. A special focus was put on the cities of Bangalore, Jakarta and Manila. The extensive and versatile APW cultural program was hosted by our outstanding event partners and presented at various venues across Berlin.
