About us

Each year, the APNIC community has the chance to come together for policy development, decision-making, education, information sharing, and networking – both professional and social. The first APNIC Meeting of each year is held as a conference track of APRICOT and the second as a standalone meeting.


APNIC is an open, membership-based, not-for-profit organization. It is one of five Regional Internet Registries (RIRs) charged with ensuring the fair distribution and responsible management of IP addresses and related resources. These resources are required for the stable and reliable operation of the global Internet.
