AVPN hosts annual gathering in Abu Dhabi

AVPN conference held in UAE for the first time

While the world continues to face a multitude of uncertainties, Asia has proven resilient, standing up to the economic challenges brought on by the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic, Russia’s war in Ukraine, and the global economic slowdown. The region is home to some of the fastest growing economies and a significant contributor to global growth.

However, in order to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals by 2030, we must reach beyond Asia’s economic growth story and harness its vast collective power. It is imperative that the social investment community comes together to learn, connect, and unite in action for Asia.

We must leverage our extraordinary cultural, socio-economic, and historical diversity, the resilience and capacity of our communities, as well as our shared desire to achieve impact and secure the futures of this generation and the next. 
Following 2023’s record attendance of 1,300 delegates from 44 countries, AVPN Global Conference 2024 will bring together investors, philanthropists, corporations, policymakers, researchers, entrepreneurs, and implementing organisations from around the world, working for impact within the Gulf Cooperation Countries and all territories eastward as far as Australia and New Zealand.

For the first time, the event will take place in the GCC region, hosted by Abu Dhabi. It will run over three days from April 23 to 25 at the St Regis Saadiyat Island Resort and Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi Hotel.

This will be the most inclusive conference to date, bridging north, south, east, and west through our platform for knowledge exchange and networking, alongside opportunities for forming wide-reaching alliances in the pursuit of collaborative action. 

The three key themes will be: collaboration; leadership; and innovation and with day two dedicated to Impact Investment.
