n behalf of the MACEOS Exco Committee 2014-2016, it gives me great pleasure to present our very own publication ̶ Business Events Malaysia. This publication will aim to act as the mouthpiece for our industry and will be a mix of articles, interviews, industry developments and vital information for all stakeholders in the diverse business events community. In short, something for everyone, whether you are an exhibition organiser, conference organiser, event manager, convention center or supplier. One of the many obligations of our association exco is to improve communication between ourselves and our members and, equally important, to ensure that we strive to keep them fully abreast of new developments in the business events industry. This publication is just one portion of this vision and we are confident that its contents will provide our members valuable insights and knowledge that will help them keep ahead of the game in this increasingly competitive environment.

business. For Malaysia to be effective in this regard, the Government and the private sector must work hand in hand and so I would like to extend my appreciation here on behalf of MACEOS exco to the Malaysian Exhibition and Convention Bureau (MYCEB) for providing that vital link between the government and the private sector. Since their formation in 2009, the landscape for the business events community has changed immeasurably and we are all extremely grateful for their help in enabling us to navigate through these changes successfully. However, nothing stands still and there is still much work ahead of us. With that, I wish you an enjoyable read and you will be hearing more from us in 2015. Here’s to a bright future for us all and a special thanks also to our partners in this venture, Harini Management Services Sdn Bhd who have been instrumental in the concept, content and delivery of Business Events Malaysia.

In light of this I would like to call upon all MACEOS members to get behind this exciting new publication and give it the necessary support to ensure its success. However, we also recognise the business events industry is more than just our members and so, we aim for the widest possible circulation throughout the country as we strongly feel the content will appeal to a myriad number of stakeholders both commercial, governmental and academic. The business events industry is an ever challenging environment with Malaysia competing on a global scale for its fair share of this increasingly lucrative

Steve Monnington, Mayfield Media Strategies, UK Monnington has been involved in the exhibition industry for over 23 years. He first joined the Blenheim Group and, as Director of International Development, handled all of the acquisitions that took Blenheim from a small UK company to the world’s largest exhibition organiser. Today, Monnington heads Mayfield Media Strategies (MMS) providing M&A broking services and strategic business development consultancy to exhibition organisers making it the largest specialist M&A brokers for the exhibition industry. Using his vast exhibition experience as a platform, Monnington is a regular contributor for Exhibition News and Exhibition World.

A BIG DEAL: Acquisitions Around Asia Welcome to this new regular column in which I will be looking at exhibition acquisition activity around the world, concentrating mainly on Asia but also monitoring what is happening elsewhere.

O

ver the last three years, South East Asia has seen a number of investments from the international organisers. UBM and ITE have acquired stakes in a number of businesses in Malaysia and, along with Reed Exhibitions, are the organisers making most business development noise in the region. As well as Malaysia, ITE has been spending its money in Indonesia and a few months ago they announced the acquisition of 50% of Indobuildtech, the largest building and construction

exhibition in Jakarta. This is the largest exhibition acquisition so far in Indonesia and is in ITE’s sweetspot. Their construction portfolio already includes shows in Russia, Turkey, Kazakhstan and India. Indonesia has suffered from lack of venue space in recent years but with the first of two new major venues coming on stream in January 2014 (to be managed by Hannover Messe), Indonesia is set to see a fundamental shift in its exhibition landscape as more international companies will have the

ability to find venue slots to launch their international brands there. In time, this should put Indonesia right at the top of the ASEAN exhibition market, which is where it belongs given that it accounts for more than 50% of the total population in the region. In the same week as the Indobuildtech deal was announced, I held an M&A workshop in Seoul for South Korean exhibition organisers. In contrast to Indonesia, South Korea has yet to become a serious destination for international organisers despite the quality and size of venues so I was paving the way by educating the domestic businesses about M&A

trends in Asia and how to prepare their businesses for when the internationalisation of their market comes. Now just a few months later we can see the start, with the entry of Reed Exhibitions into the market with a joint venture with K. Fairs Ltd, one of South Korea’s leading independent organisers. The show in question is Kormarine, Korea’s largest international maritime industry event and is a significant addition to Reed’s growing list of maritime industry events. I believe we will see more international activities in South Korea in the coming months. Most of the acquisitions made around the world in the last three years have

been small and strategic in nature. However, in one month we have seen the re-emergence of the mega-deal. UBM formally announced that it will acquire USA organiser Advanstar for US$972 million. The portfolio consists of 54 tradeshows and approximately 100 conferences in fashion, licensing, life sciences and powersports. The acquisition will make UBM the largest organiser in the USA. Together with the acquisition of US organiser Questex by Private Equity firm Shamrock Capital partners and the rumours surrounding the sale of UK based Clarion Exhibitions for a reported US$327m, the big deals are back.

The Dreaded GST, Or Is It?

Dato’ Chua Tia Guan, Head of Tax and Financial Consulting of Great Vision Business Advisory Services, outlines the GST and what to expect with its impending implementation.

G

“.......it is important to understand that there is no tax on tax. Therefore, GST is not a cost to the business but to the consumer.� | 14

oods and Services Tax (GST) also known as the Value Added Tax (VAT) in many countries, is a multi-stage consumption tax on goods and services. GST is levied on the supply of goods and services at each stage of the supply chain from the supplier up to the retail stage of distribution. Even though GST is imposed at each level of the supply chain, the tax element does not become part of the cost of the product because GST paid on the business inputs is claimable. Hence, it does not matter how many stages a particular good and service goes through the supply chain because the input tax incurred at the previous stage is always deducted by the businesses at the next step in the supply chain. Dato’ Chua Tia Guan who is the Head of Tax & Financial Consulting of Great Vision Business Advisory Services was an auditor and tax consultant for Arthur Anderson for 11 years. Today, apart from running KLVRZQ¿QDQFLDOFRQVXOWLQJVHUYLFHKH has been a part of the Prime Minister’s Department for the last eight years. As | Business Events Malaysia |

a government approved tax and GST consultant, he is very clear about the need to have a comprehensive understanding about GST and the way it works to debunk any myths people might have. “First of all, it is important to understand that there is no tax on tax, therefore GST is not a cost to the business but to the consumer,â€? Chua says. He explains that in the supply chain, the role of the businesses is to actually be an intermediary to collect and to pay the government. “Depending on which industry you are in, it is possible that you will experience a rather than a negative one.â€? Why the need for GST? “GST is a tax on consumption. Therefore it is a more stable revenue for WKHJRYHUQPHQWWRFRQVROLGDWHWKHÂżVFDO policy,â€? Chua explains. The International credit rating body will restore credit rating and will help general business activities. GST will also provide EXVLQHVVHVZLWKDOHYHOSOD\LQJÂżHOG


Chua is part of a governmental task force called PEMUDAH that helps to facilitate Malaysian business. “With the continuous collaboration between the public and private sectors, PEMUDAH has successfully introduced many initiatives to enhance the business environment in Malaysia. When PEMUDAH first started, Malaysia was ranked 33rd business destination. “Today, after seven years, we are now ranked 18th in the World Bank’s Doing Business ranking, ahead of Taiwan, Switzerland and Japan.” One of the things that PEMUDAH did was to reduce red tape when it came to licences and permits. This resulted in a positive outcome where bueracracy was reduced and as a result, the ranking improved. “When we improve, our country will also improve,” Chua explains. “When you are stagnant, we will be overtaken, that is the game in terms of international competitiveness. “The governmental employees have been very cooperative in terms of working together. There is no personal interest, it is ultimately for the nation,” he adds. With the impending GST implementation date, most Malaysians fear that the prices of goods will go up further and total household expenditure will increase, making it look like a bleak financial future for most. “Based on the research carried out by the government on 689 goods, the price of 73 items will go up while the price of 287 items will go down and 329 items will remain unchanged,” says Dato’ Chua. However, he states that this will largely depend on whether the goods are subject to sales tax before GST and whether the businesses will pass on the tax saving or cost to the consumers. “We hope that the savings will cascade to the consumer ultimately.” Chua shares that the government has, in fact, been talking about GST for the last 30 years. He belives that GST is good for the country so the people need to bite the bullet and go with it. “As for businesses preparing for the implementation date, there is

a registration process that businesses need to undertake with December 2014 being the deadline.” SMEs are given a grant of RM1000 to buy GST compliance software. Chua reiterates that although GST is an inevitable progression, he doesn’t deny that there are unavoidable adverse effects on the Malaysian economy to take into account. For example, based on experience from other nations that have already implemented GST, it will take two to three years to settle. “In general, there will be an unavoidable inflation after GST comes into play. An additional inflation of 1 per cent to 1.5 per cent for a short term is anticipated on top of the current inflation level of 3.4 per cent as of June 2014,” explains Chua. Although this is expected to be a short term effect, businesses need to make the necessary changes as the inflation will affect the disposable income of the people. If there is a reduction in their cost, the end product price should come down. GST and the Malaysian Business Events Industry As for the business events industry, Chua says that certain players are already subject to the service tax so it will be no different as the service tax will be replaced by GST. “It is not a cost to the business of exhibitors per se but GST will have an impact on sales, human resource as well as marketing and promotions.” He adds, ”In marketing and promotions, for example, free gifts worth more than RM500 will be GST chargable. Exhibitors need to find a way to absorb the costs to continue giving out attractive gifts and prizes.” From a sales perspective, he uses booking an exhibition space as an example as it will require advance booking and payment, therefore allowances need to be made for GST in advance.

examine certain core areas that will need some rethinking. A natural progression Chua agrees that most Malaysians are still unsure about the details of GST. “It is important for people to understand that GST is, in fact, a tax issue and not a business issue. Therefore, its application is necessary.” Chua also reiterates that the Government’s primary concern is one of national interest, one that needs to be an actively pursued long-term goal. “The sooner all of us come to terms that this paradigm shift is necessary, the better.”

“When you are stagnant, you will be overtaken. That is the game in terms of international competitiveness.” “The sooner all of us come to terms that this paradigm shift is necessary, the better.”

Seeing that the effects of GST are minimal and not as jarring in the business events industry, players need not be too concerned. However, they need to | Business Events Malaysia |

MyCEB heads Malaysia’s aspiration to be ASIA’S BUSINESS EVENTS HUB

U

nder the Malaysian government’s Economic Transformation Programme (ETP), Business Tourism is identified as one of the Entry Point Projects (EPP) of the tourism National Key Economic Areas (NKEA). Since 2003, Malaysia’s international business tourism visitors have increased by 141%. From 550,741 international business tourists arrivals in 2003, a decade later this number has increased to more than 1.3 million visitors. Realising this potential, the Malaysian government set its priority on the industry to focus more on high-yield business travellers. Business tourism is a high-yield segment that has the potential to develop and contribute towards Malaysia’s growth. The Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB) was established in 2009 to expand the segment and position the country as a leading destination for business events (meetings, incentives, conventions and exhibitions) and has also been tasked with raising the standards and skills of professionals within the business events industry. A Catalyst for Growth A non-profit organisation, MyCEB’s goal is to grow international business events arrival from 5% to 8% (2.9 million business tourist) of overall tourist arrival and to position Malaysia as one of the top 5 destinations for international conventions in Asia Pacific. The bureau serves as a one-stop centre to assist meeting and event planners to bid for and stage regional and international business tourism events in Malaysia and act as a conduit for national product development. MyCEB’s services include facilitating

bids for regional and international business events, government liaison, event marketing, delegate boosting, providing on-site event support as well as advice on local products and services. The bureau has appointed overseas marketing offices in North America, Australia, New Zealand and China and works closely with Tourism Malaysia offices worldwide. This establishment abroad is indeed a true testament of commitment to position Malaysia as Asia’s business events hub. Growth Beyond Business Tourism Apart from the strong economic growth business tourism brings into Malaysia; the industry has undoubtedly seen accelerated benefits in other key areas. Through business tourism, it is estimated that for every RM 192,450 in economic value generated by business tourism, there is one Full Time Equivalent (FTE) job created. The industry expects to generate an estimated 16,700 employment opportunities by the year 2020. (Source: NBES[1]). Increase in foreign exchange earnings by the arrival of business tourist. Apart from that business tourism also increases the nation’s trade and export promotion. Exchange of knowledge and skills between nations. Business tourism relate to all business sectors and professional communities such as medical, science and technology. With that it unites people with common interests and goals to increase awareness for a cause. | Business Events Malaysia |

International business events provide networking platforms for local industry partners to strengthen their international business networks and collaborations for future bids. This also presents partners with the chance to showcase local innovation, products and expertise to the global market. Attraction of industry world leaders, decision makers and potential investors that would not otherwise have visited the country. It is estimated that 20% of international delegates extend their stay for pre and post travel, providing benefits to regional communities (Source: NBES[1]). The rates of successful events in Malaysia also attract other business related business events into Malaysia as well as help other industries flourish such as infrastructural, product and service developments. The industry also develops Malaysia’s international profile through media publicity and exposure to international business community. Through the attraction of international conventions, Malaysia can improve its international rankings as an international meetings destination within ICCA[2] and UIA[3]. International conventions can often leave an ongoing legacy to benefit the local and regional community. Provide forums for continuing education for local professional and business community.

day meetings a cultural feel with a Malay, Chinese, Indian, Western, Muhibbah (multi-ethnic) or international theme. This is then carried through in the venue décor, service staff apparel and Food & Beverage menu. The upgraded package also comes with free-flow coffee and tea for the duration of the event and chilled juices during coffee breaks. For TOC, new ‘Sundown Hour Packages’ give clients the option of taking their meeting programme to a relaxing conclusion with a two-hour cocktail hour of free-flow beverages including sweet and refreshing Asian-influenced mocktails and cocktails, basic PA system and sound technician on standby for a minimum of 50 guests and above. Also, Pryor shares that with 5-Star Banqueting, guests get to enjoy a unique and exclusive banqueting experience with value-adds that include customised menus, foyer decoration and ice-cravings, butler service for VIP tables and silver service. Under the RM100,000 Conventions Value-Add Programme, the complimentary Cultural Showcase remains a firm favourite of event planners of international association meetings. The showcase of eight Malaysian arts and crafts – batik painting, basket weaving, wood carving, songket weaving, pewter smithing, henna painting, Chinese calligraphy and the gamelan (traditional Malay orchestra) – will give international delegates a snapshot of the country’s rich and diverse cultural heritage without having to leave the facility. According to Pryor, this interactive, participative experience of Malaysian arts and crafts is a great convenience factor for delegates with limited time to visit attractions or undertake pre- and post-tours. There is also the tiered (bronze, silver, gold and platinum) Exhibitions Loyalty Programme. Worth RM30,000 and above, exhibition organisers receive loyalty reward points based on venue hire for subsequent shows, free usage of press room, VIP lounge, organiser’s office, venue for a pre-function event, complimentary coffee or tea on arrival, an exhibitor briefing hosted by the Centre and more.

BUSINESS EVENTS WEEK The Exhibition Planning Seminar held on the 20 August had a variety of profound industry experts tackle topics such as “What’s next for the Malaysian Exhibition Industry” by Mr Mark Temple – Smith, ITE Asia, Singapore, Exhibition Marketing: Getting The Right Visitors and Effective Sponsorship Marketing by Mr Peter McKenna from Kallman Worldwide, Adopting New Technologies for Today’s Exhibition by Yusno Yunos, CEO & Founder of Evenesis and Towards Greening Exhibitions by Ar Sarly Adre Sarkum, President of Malaysia Green Building Confederation.

Mark Cochrane from UFI spoke about The Future of the Trade Exhibition Industry in Asia. One of the things that Cochrane highlighted was the importance of digitization in today’s exhibition industry. “Visitors expect an interactive floor plan and data sharing tools when it comes to today’s exhibitions,” Cochrane shares. He explains that people are looking to use their time more efficiently so social media coupled with effective mobile applications are a crucial part of the exhibition industry today. Cochrane also reiterates the need for a sophisticated

online platform. “It is important to have a continued and extended relationship with your exhibitors and visitors,” he says. Cochrane believes that South East Asia is a top performer in the exhibitions industry worldwide. Malaysia in particular he says has all the qualities of a popular exhibitions destination and has the ability to do very well as a top of the mind MICE destination. Before the session closed for the day, delegates were able to participate in a question and answer session with the speakers.
