APNIC Regional Meeting

In addition to the APNIC Conferences, APNIC provides APNIC Regional Meetings (ARMs) as a forum for Members and stakeholders to meet with their peers in their community and from neighbouring economies to share their Internet resource management experiences, and get the latest updates on APNIC’s activities. APNIC ARMs are open to all and are usually free of charge (depending on partner event).
