APICTA is a collaborative network of ICT communities nominated by member economies in the region, aimed at promoting technology innovation and developing indigenous ICT solutions for the global market through an annual awards program. This program is unique as it brings together participants from large and small businesses, entrepreneurs, the public sector, startups, not-for-profit organizations, and students in a single program.
Known as the “Oscar of the IT arena,” the APICTA Awards stands out as the most influential ICT industry competition in the Asia-Pacific region. Nominee selection is based on the four criteria: uniqueness of the product, market potential, features, quality, and application. Each nominee is required to pitch their product and undergo evaluation by an international judging panel.
This year’s APICTA Awards, held in Hong Kong, united over 600 leaders and experts from the ICT industry throughout the Asia Pacific region. Across four days of award evaluations and networking events, the occasion fostered collaboration within the region’s ICT sector and afforded participants the chance to explore the forefront of the region’s innovation and technology landscape.

He highlighted the rich talent and skills found in the people of Sri Lanka. “The development of our solutions is completely driven by the abilities of our local talent, underscoring the advantage of keeping our skilled individuals within the country instead of losing them abroad. These awards stand as proof of our team’s unwavering dedication, hard work, and strong passion in creating innovative solutions. A heartfelt thanks goes out to the organizing committee and the respected jury delegation for their valuable support.”
