KUCHING, Sept 24: The Malaysian Association of Convention and Exhibition Organisers and Suppliers (MACEOS) is organising a Business Events Forum this Oct 10.
The four-day forum would be held at the Setia City Convention Centre in Shah Alam, Selangor. Participants would deliberate on the latest trends, developments and issues facing business practitioners.
“With the average length of stay for conference and exhibition delegates at more than four days and at a higher delegate spend per conference, conferences and exhibitions will see a new growth curve for the tourism industry in Malaysia.
“According to the Malaysia Convention and Exhibition Bureau, between 2015 and 2017, a total of 5.86 million business visitors travelled to Malaysia, producing a direct expenditure to the nation at RM48.8 million and creating an economic impact of RM114 million,” said the organiser in a statement today.
The forum would have special sessions for associations heads, venue providers and professional conference organisers who are keen on understanding how to win or entice conferences to Malaysia.
Titled ‘A Guide to Winning Conferences to Malaysia’, the overview would allow delegates to better understand the processes needed to conduct a successful bid to position Malaysia as a preferred destination for business events.
Conducted by professional conference organiser Gracie Geikie from Sarawak, associations would be better equipped to know of the services and government support available to help them bring in conferences to benefit their members in the related disciplines and fields of their expertise.
