Thank you for your interest in joining ABF, your next stage in life. ABF is a diverse network of influential and high quality EO members from 21 countries who meet three times a year in Asia for amazing transformational experiences in the intimacy of a 3D forum.

ABF was founded in 2006 as a regional forum and integration platform. It offers members the chance to connect with fellow EO members across the region , learn new cultures, explore business opportunities and build lifelong friendships.

After 17 years, ABF Next Stage has evolved into a global community of passionate and influential EO members seeking the next stage of experiences, forum, network and impact. The three signature ABF Once in A Lifetime ('OIL') meetings a year remain a cornerstone of the ABF experience.

ABF membership is by invitation only. We welcome diversity and we have members from Asia Pacific, North Asia, South Asia, Greater China, South Pacific, Europe and North America. ABF is run by a Board of volunteered leaders that continue to nurture and lead ABF to remain relevant and sustainable into the next decade.

All ABF membership is subject to final approval by the ABF Board.
