Each year, hubs are invited to submit proposals to host their regional SHAPE event. Global Shapers Bangkok Hub won the bid to host the Shape APAC 2023 on 22 - 24 September, 2023. Similarly, several other hubs hosted the regional Shape, Kathmandu hub - Shape South Asia, Tshwane Hub  - Shape Africa, Manaus Hub - Shape Latin America, Abu Dhabi Hub - Shape MENA, Washington DC HubsSHAPE North America & Caribbean and Bilbao hub - Shape Europe & Eurasia. Bangkok hub is hosting Shape APAC second time after 2018 while Hanoi Hub hosted in 2014, Bandung Hub in 2015, Tokyo II Hub in 2016, Cebu Hub in 2017 and Ulaanbaatar Hub in 2019.

The Asia-Pacific (APAC) region faces a remarkable confluence of crises — the post-effects of the pandemic, cost of living crisis, the great resignation, climate crisis, energy shortage — leading to an era of "polycrisis," a highlight of the World Economic Forum (WEF) Annual Meeting 2023 in Davos

To prepare for these interrelated threats, leaders need to invest in solutions that build long-term resilience toward multiple risks, and hence the conception of the theme of SHAPE APAC 2023: "Rebuilding a Resilient Region”
