March 28, 2017

AVPN conference

June 7-9th at the Intercontinental Hotel in Bangkok, Thailand

Now in its fifth year, the AVPN Conference will bring together a diverse group of funders and resource providers from around the globe to take part in the largest gathering of philanthropists and social investors in Asia. This premier event provides opportunities for knowledge sharing, collaboration and advocacy for the growth of the social sector ecosystem in Asia.

This year’s theme “Collaborating for Impact” reflects the importance of partnership across sectors and borders when looking to tackle some of Asia’s biggest challenges. The event will focus on the need for strategic and outcome-focused approaches to social investing across the full spectrum of social and financial returns – from grantmakers to impact investors.

The 3 day gathering will feature examples of collaboration from AVPN members across Asia including deep dives into sectors like: education, health, livelihoods, the environment, and more. The program will also include AVPN’s Deal Share Live – Investment Showcase, featuring pitches from 30 social purpose organisations supported by AVPN Members.

At this year’s Conference, speakers will include thought leaders, innovators and practitioners from across the region that are all making strides to grow and improve the philanthropy and social investment sector in Asia.

GSEN will be holding a meetup for our members on Tuesday 6 June, so be sure to GSEN @ AVPN if you’d like to join.
