Registration is now open for APNIC 48 in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Training workshops will be held from 5 to 9 September 2019, with the conference running from 10 to 12 September 2019.
New registration system
APNIC is using a new registration system for APNIC 48. You will need to have an APNIC Login to register for the conference (if you registered for a previous APNIC conference, the old username and password won’t work on the new system). If you don’t have an APNIC Login, it’s quick and easy to create one. And if you need help, there’s a step-by-step guide on how to register.
Remember, each APNIC Member organization receives four free tickets for the conference. Other discounts apply to students and those from Least Developed Countries (LDCs). Hear from Internet leaders and share your experience with your peers — register now!
Four workshops on offer
Community experts will join APNIC trainers to share their knowledge and experience at the following workshops:
- Advanced BGP plus RPKI Deployathon

This is a great opportunity to build your Internet operations skills with practical and relevant content and intensive lab exercises. Places are limited, so register now to secure your spot. Early bird rates for the workshops end 9 August 2019. It’s first paid, first served!
