APRICOT is a forum that facilitates knowledge sharing among key Internet builders in the region, with peers and leaders from the Internet community worldwide. Since 1996, APRICOT has established itself as Asia Pacific's premier regional Internet Summit where related organizations converge and host their annual general meetings and other special events.

The week-long summit comprises seminars, workshops, tutorials, conference sessions, Birds of a Feather (BOFs), and other forums, all geared towards spreading and sharing the knowledge required to operate the Internet within the Asia Pacific region.

APRICOT's mission is to develop and advance the skills and understanding necessary to grow a robust Internet infrastructure in the Asia Pacific region. APRICOT is about bringing the world's top Internet experts together with those who can benefit most from this knowledge.

APRICOT attendees are the key builders of Asia's Internet. These are individuals who directly impact the operational deployment and stability of Internet Protocol (IP)-based networks and services.

One fundamental principle of APRICOT has been its vendor-neutral objectiveness that provides for informed opinion. It creates a neutral educational forum that provides for frank discussions on the skills, policies and technologies that are critical for the smooth operation of the Internet network and services infrastructure both regionally and internationally.

APRICOT also provides its sponsors the chance to participate in a quality, content-rich event with excellent opportunities to target their products and services at the decision-makers in the Asia Pacific Internet community.

This event has a one-year technology horizon. This means that APRICOT is involved with the latest technologies in cyberspace today, or those that are likely to emerge within the next 12 months. As APRICOT is only organised once a year, special attention is given to the creation of affinity groups that foster mutual support throughout the year. During the year, these affinity groups play a key role as a source of knowledge and experience.
