Founded in 1978, PTC is a non-profit membership organization committed to advancing digital infrastructure, telecommunications, and ICT globally, with focus on the Pacific Rim. PTC serves as a central hub within the digital infrastructure community, nurturing innovation, fostering business growth, and promoting collaboration among stakeholders through a diverse range of events and initiatives. Foremost among these is the PTC Annual Conference, a prestigious gathering held in Honolulu, Hawaii, in January, where C-level executives, technologists, thought leaders, investors, researchers, and academicians convene to share knowledge, cultivate valuable relationships, and catalyze new business.


As a membership organization, we mobilize global leaders in telecommunications and information technology industries so they can drive the development and deployment of ICT across the Pacific region and beyond.


As a non-profit, we are dedicated to educating professionals in and about the region. We spark, and guide, conversations and collaborations that set the stage for the deployment and growth of ICT throughout the region and beyond.


As a global organization, we engage the broadest community of professionals, organizations, technologists, researchers and influencers who together ensure progress in our industry while improving the quality of life in Pacific Rim communities.


PTC’s vision is a better world where people and organizations are connected through the innovative use of information and communication technologies (ICT).


PTC’s mission is to advance the ethical development and use of information and communication technologies (ICT).
