MACEOS Industry Dialogue 2016 UFI Open Seminar The new KL Tourism Bureau


PRESI DENT’S NOTE Ø

Dear readers, The team at MACEOS have started out the year on a very progressive note. We successfully managed to bring the industry together for our very first industry dialogue discussing the various challenges faced by the different areas of business events. Members and non-members were invited to speak candidly about the issues they face in their everyday business undertakings. The challenges were minuted and put together to be collectively presented at Lab 2.0 initiated by PEMANDU and I am happy to note that the feedback was graciously received by the relevant parties and we continue to work together to ensure that our industry is heard as we are a lucrative contributor to the Malaysian GDP. MACEOS would like to take this opportunity to personally thank Dato’ Shukri who organised and coordinated the dialogue which was a success! In a bid to further strengthen our industry with skilled and qualified human resources, we have recently signed an MOU with Berjaya University College of Hospitality (Berjaya UCH). Under the MOU signed with Berjaya UCH, students who attain grade “B” and above for 2 selected courses offered under their Diploma and Degree in Events Management programme will receive an additional certificate jointly awarded by both Berjaya UCH and MACEOS. This will offer fresh graduates the opportunity to be more relevant when vying for jobs in the business events industry. We are very pleased to be working hand in hand with Berjaya UCH to further enhance the potential of our younger generation equipping them with the right tools to make our industry even greater! We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate DBKL on the official launch of the KL Tourism Bureau (KLTB), a rebranding of the Tourism Unit of Kuala Lumpur City Hall, which was officially launched by the Mayor of Kuala Lumpur, Datuk Mhd Amin Nordin Abd Aziz. We look forward to working closely with KLTB to create a one-of-a-kind experience for business events visitors coming to Kuala Lumpur which will make us a preferred destination for MICE. A total of 18 MACEOS members attended the UFI Open Seminar in Chiang Mai, Thailand from 25-26 February 2016. Our members had an opportunity to share their views on the future of the exhibition industry in the region and gain valuable feedback and industry knowledge from other like -minded individuals in the industry. The AFECA board meeting was also held at the same venue as part of the programme. We look forward to Singapore hosting the UFI Open Seminar in 2017. In 2016, MACEOS committee members and I are looking forward to making more positive strides towards building the Malaysian Business Events industry. Plans have been set in place and I believe that if we work together as one team and one voice, we will achieve what we have set out to do. We look forward to a progressive year and can’t wait to see the fruits of our work making our industry bigger and better than ever before!

Things seem a lot different since I wrote my publisher’s note for the last Business Events Magazine. Dropping oil prices and a general downturn in lots of interconnected sectors of the economy means we might see a more austere outlook as we look ahead in 2016. The Business Events industry is no stranger to economic cycles and it’s the nature of our business which means we are vulnerable to budget cuts in advertising and promotions when the going gets tough. This is to be expected but we have weathered storms like this before and I am sure we can do so again. In many ways one of the key messages we should try to get across to our clients is that, in times like this, everyone needs to do more marketing and more promotional activities to squeeze whatever business we can out of the market. Cutting back always seems the obvious solution but sometimes it can be counterproductive and so the bold approach to do more can sometimes be the way forward. MACEOS will certainly champion this approach for 2016 and we will be rolling out another Professional Exhibition Management (PEM) course in April in Kuala Lumpur and we are even more delighted to announce our first ever Professional Conference Management (PCM) course to be held in Kuching later this month as we seek to spread our network and knowledge beyond the Klang Valley. Once again, I would like to thank all the contributors for our fifth edition of Business Events Malaysia, content is king and I am certainly delighted to welcome Madam Mae Ho Seok Khen, Executive Director/ Chief Executive Officer of Berjaya Education Group as our lead story this edition, certainly exciting times ahead for Berjaya . Finally even though this note is post Chinese New Year I would like to still extend my best wishes to all readers for a happy and prosperous year of the monkey!

BERJAYA UNIVERSITY COLLEGE OF HOSPITALITY (BERJAYA UCH)– CREATING QUALITY GRADUATES IN EVENTS MANAGEMENT Mae Ho Seok Khen, Executive Director/Chief Executive Officer of Berjaya Education Group, speaks candidly about the rapidly growing Malaysian events industry and the role BERJAYA UCH is playing together with MACEOS in ensuring quality industry graduates.

If one were to define elegance and poise, Madam Mae Ho Seok Khen would fit the bill. Her strong and sturdy passion for the hotel, tourism and events industry was evident in her candid conversations and discussions with the BE Magazine editorial team. “Growing up, I always liked to cook and bake but little did my parents know that it would take me down a professional path in the culinary and hospitality industry,” Mae laughs. “Today, looking back, it has been quite a journey.” Part of the BERJAYA UCH team for 8 years now, Mae’s professional journey began in England where she was trained in Hospitality Management, which led her to specialise in cuisine, patisserie, restaurant service and oenology. She graduated with an MA in Education Management (Bath), UK where she was also awarded the professional membership in the prestigious Institute of Hospitality, UK (formerly known as HCIMA). She worked as a young chef for the personal chef of Lord Butler, Chancellor of the University of Essex. Subsequently, she worked at the King Edward VII Hospital in Regent’s Park, a hospital that caters for British Royalties and High Court judges. Returning to Malaysia, Mae joined the Pantai Group and set up the catering department for the second-phase of the medical centre. “During my time in Pantai, I designed the first insulated hot cupboard to keep food warm for patients, it was a very rewarding time in my

BUSINESS EVENTS MALAYSIA

career. However, I wanted to teach and so my career path took another turn.” Mae took her first step into teaching as a lecturer and then as the Dean of the School of Hotel and Catering Management at KDU, Petaling Jaya. Her responsibilities included the daily administration of the School on Strategic Planning, designing and implementing new courses and to setting up two branch campuses in Penang and Sibu. Thereafter, Mae was appointed Director of the School of Hospitality and Tourism Management at Sunway College from 1997 until 2007. During her tenure, she was appointed Project Director for China Operations to set up the Xi’an-Sunway International Business Management School to conduct corporate training programmes and summer schools. During the course of the interview, Mae stressed the importance of parents of the Y generation changing their mind-set about their children taking the conventional route when selecting a degree programme. “It is important for parents to realise that the world is changing, and with change comes a variety of new opportunities. Young graduates are now called to be more creative and be of exceptional quality so that they can be more dynamic than their predecessors.” BERJAYA UCH together with MACEOS has taken the lead in ensuring quality and well-qualified events management graduates with a recent MoU signing that incorporates awarding a joint certification by BERJAYA UCH and MACEOS to deserving students.

Ø ON THE COVER

BERJAYA UCH’s vision is to be distinctive, recognised, respected world-class leader and learning community with academic and professional excellence – where students can unlock their full potential. Since 2009, how has BERJAYA UCH successfully done this? Yes, we are proud to say that BERJAYA UCH has produced graduates that now have successful careers in the Tourism and Hospitality industry. What differentiates our students from the rest is that we inculcate creativity, action and passion into what they do. From the very first day students step into our campus, they will be trained to behave and act in a professional manner – a crucial criterion in our industry. To unlock their true potential, we have put in place a good support system that will help students blossom and reach for their goals. Why is BERJAYA UCH the perfect school to undertake offering the events management diploma and degree programmes? At the School of Tourism, we have assembled a team of experienced academicians who are passionate about imparting their expert knowledge to the younger generation. Our sound academic structure delivered through immersive education ensures that students get a healthy balance of theory and practical training. We even created an event lab to provide students with a realistic learning environment. Our city campus, located in the heart of KL is pumping with exciting events and happenings the whole year round, giving students a good insight into the world of events. The strong conglomerate-backed Berjaya connectivity enables students to take advantage of learning as well as taking advantage of internship opportunities from a wide range of companies. Take our Berjaya Times Square Hotel for example, which is located in the same building as our university college. Thus, we have the visibility and a partnership with the hotel to give our students exposure to actual work involved, from setting up to execution of events. BERJAYA UCH is proud to be the appointed as Cluster Leader for Events Management by the Malaysian Centre for Tourism and Hospitality Education (MyCenTHE), a national initiative formed under the government’s Economic Transformation Programme to improve the quality and quantity of tourism and hospitality professions in the country. We are committed to developing and delivering high-quality tourism and events management education to serve the needs of the industry and, thus, improving the nation’s status as an international tourist destination. MyCenTHE is fully

supported by the Malaysian Ministry of Education, Ministry of Tourism and Ministry of Human Resources. Can you tell us more about BERJAYA UCH’s recent collaboration with MACEOS? Under the MoU signed with MACEOS, students who attain grade ‘B’ and above for 2 selected courses offered under our Diploma and Degree in Events Management programme will receive an additional certificate jointly awarded by both BERJAYA UCH and MACEOS. This is to enhance our students’ employability, giving them an added advantage in the competitive job market. Also, in this way, members of MACEOS will have a higher standard of people working for them in the future and it will not be about hiring people just to fill in the gaps. We are pleased to be working together with MACEOS to help make the Malaysian business events industry even bigger and better. In recent years, there has been an increase in students choosing the events management programme to study. Why do you think that is and in your opinion, will this trend continue? I believe this is still an upward trend, not just in Malaysia, but worldwide. With the rapid growth in special events, conferences and exhibitions (as evident by the brand new events we witnessed recently, such as the KL City Grand Prix), parents and students are beginning to see the good potential and career prospects in the events industry. In fact, there is an increase in job opportunities in telecommunications, emerging consumer products and many other fields that are demanding event planning and management skills. In your opinion, what is the advantage of getting a diploma or degree in events management? The increased demand in the events industry creates ample job opportunities for students armed with qualifications in this field. Graduates from an events management programme are highly sought after as they possess a unique combination of theoretical and practical knowledge essential to excel in their chosen profession. In addition, to move with the times, our graduates are trained in event management systems such as Evenesis, and other design and project management software. One of the challenges that the business events industry in Malaysia faces is the shortage of human capital in the industry. In your opinion, will this programme address this issue and also, what else do you think can be done to address it?


Ø

As this is a growing industry, the demand for a skilled workforce will increase. Our programme is designed with a sound academic structure that is complemented by intensive practical training to provide students with essential events technical skills and knowledge enabling students to apply what they learnt to the work environment immediately. The provision of a steady stream of employment ready graduates will help to alleviate the issue of manpower shortage and contribute towards human capital capacity building for the country. However, we do not just want to produce graduates with technical knowledge. We want to ensure sustainability in the industry so it is crucial that our graduates are qualified professionals who are creative and discerning enough to know the right thing to do and not operate on a trial and error basis. We believe professionals like these will drive the industry forward. It is important for industry and academia to work together to promote events and business events management as a preferred career choice. A lot of parents are still not sure if they should let their children pursue this programme as very little information about career path in events management are available. With the wide career options and good career development locally and internationally, events management should be one of the top-of-the-mind career choices for school leavers. Therefore, MACEOS has really done a good job at stepping up to the plate to make the industry more available to up-and-coming talents. Tell us more about your Berjaya Immersion Method and how it is applied to the events management programme? The Berjaya Immersion Methodology is where students are exposed to real-life hands-on practical knowledge and a meaningful learning experience, thus strengthening their academic knowledge and an understanding of their studies. By involving students in real-life events, such as organising charity fun runs and product launches, academic symposium talks, students are able to learn through the discovery of their own experiences, and will be able to relate to theories learnt in the classroom with ease. Our ‘Immersion Methodology’ or experiential learning, truly prepares students to become highly competent professionals who have been immersed in industry relevant practices that the innate capability to perform well on the job is cultivated. In the events industry, you only have that crucial one chance to create a great impression. Our events management programme is also packed with educational field trips and visits to enhance student’s

learning experience. Examples of interesting activities include visiting the HOMEDEC Exhibition, Genting Arena and Setia Convention Center, among others. Our close industry links have also given us the opportunity to arrange short work stints for our students at the Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fest and Rainforest World Music Festival. This March, our students will be helping at the Miri Country Music Festival. There are also regular sessions where key industry players are invited to share their knowledge and experiences with the students, who find the sessions most beneficial. We understand that you have imbedded a 16week internship into the events management programme. Explain how your internship programme is useful to the students and share some feedback that you have received of your students’ performance. At BERJAYA UCH, we take our internship programme very seriously as it is the student’s first step into the working industry. A semester prior to the internship, students will have to undergo a series of workshops to better prepare them for the expectations of the industry. The workshops include effective communication skills, preparation of resume, how to impress at interviews and grooming. Most importantly, we place a lot of emphasis on instilling good work ethics and developing the right attitude to fulfil the expectations of the industry. We have received good feedback from our internship partners. At the moment, we have more than 100 companies registered as our internship partners, all of which provide excellent industrial training opportunities for our events management students. Some companies were so impressed with our students’ performance that they even wrote letters of recommendation complimenting their high standards displayed. It is common for our students to secure full-time employment with the companies that they are interned with. We are indeed grateful to the respective industry partners for their support. What are the future plans for the events management programme? Recently, we set up the Asia Pacific Centre for Events Management (APCEM) with the aim of providing high quality events management research and programmes to advance the events industry in the Asia Pacific region. APCEM will be striking strategic alliances with renowned centers for events management from other international education establishments to further develop knowledge in events management.

MACEOS

Industry Dialogue 2016 The Malaysian Association of Convention and Exhibition Organisers and Suppliers (MACEOS) organised an industry dialogue on 8 January to collectively identify the problems and challenges in the business events industry.

M

alaysia is becoming increasingly popular as a business events destination in Asia. However, like any industry, the Malaysian business events industry isn’t without its challenges. MACEOS is determined to be a strong and collective voice for the industry. Therefore, in line with the association’s vision to be a bigger and more active voice for the industry, this inaugural event was held to get the feedback for PEMANDU’s Lab 2.0. The session was held at MATRADE and welcomed members as well as non-members to the session.

Dialogue panellist included MACEOS President, Dato’ Vincent Lim, Chairman Government Liaison, Dato’ Mohd Shukri Abdullah, MACEOS CEO Amos Wong and MACEOS-CSR-Green Initiatives Sub-committee Chairman, Eric Ho. Dato’ Vincent Lim expressed his satisfaction on the positive turnout at the event. “The whole idea of this Industry Dialogue is for organisers, venue owners, service providers and contractors to share the problems they are facing and MACEOS will bring these problems to the relevant government agencies. So it is pleasing to see so many people want to be a part of this.” He also thanked Dato’ Shukri and his team for organising the dialogue. Dato’ Shukri pointed out that MACEOS has done much for the industry including approaching the relevant ministries, agencies, local councils, who have welcomed MACEOS’ effort to bring forward the issues industry players face. “MACEOS is looking at working closely with two ministries – MOTAC and MITI. Both ministries are keen to listen to the issues and do what they can to help.” He also invited nonmembers present to become members of MACEOS and reminded everyone that the MICE industry is, in fact, a very important player in the Malaysian economy contributing significantly to the national GDP. Participants were divided into groups based on their specific industries, which included contractors, logistics, venue providers and organisers.

CONTRACTORS Concern: Credibility of new companies. “There should be standards set for all companies, from certification and proper skills to perform the job. This should apply not only to contractors, but all suppliers and everyone in the industry,” said Jason Teh from Pico International Sdn Bhd who represented the group.

LOGISTICS Concern: Different Customs rules in different states. “We find it very difficult when Customs from different states have different rules. For example, temporary export and bond value is chargeable in Johor Bahru but not chargeable in KL or Port Klang. Therefore, the cost is high for exhibitors and their money is only returned within six months, which is the earliest,” stated the group’s representative, Chandra Ganesh from Felix Expo Logistics.

WHAT IS PEMANDU? Performance Management & Delivery Unit (PEMANDU) was formally established on the 16th of September, 2009 and is a unit under the Prime Minister’s Department. PEMANDU’s main role and objective is to oversee the implementation, assess the progress, facilitate as well as support the delivery and drive the progress of the Government Transformation Programme (GTP) and the Economic Transformation Programme (ETP).

WHO IS MYCEB? Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau’s (MyCEB) role is to further promote and position Malaysia internationally as the preferred destination for meetings, incentives, conventions and exhibitions, including major events. They are at hand to assist local and international meeting and event planners to bid for, secure and stage their international events successfully in Malaysia.

VENUES The group, represented by Francis Teo from Setia City Convention Centre, highlighted the following:

This is misleading and will create a bad impression when international companies look for convention centres in Malaysia. We feel there should be some guidelines/criteria for venues to be classified as ‘convention centres’.

i) Licensing Concerns: Currently, there are multiple authorities in charge of signage. There is no common guideline to obtain licenses. In the same location, one event will be able to obtain licenses whereas the next event is unable to obtain licenses. Sometimes, there are last minute cancellations of events because the event organisers are unable to obtain the license. This is not good for both the venue provider and for the business events industry in the country.

iii) Events Guidelines

ii) Misuse of the word ‘Convention Centre’

Concern: Hotel owners complain that they are losing businesses to other destinations/neighbouring countries who provide more support in obtaining international business.

Concern: Recently, there has been misuse of the word ‘Convention Centre’. For example, warehouses and shoplots are being called Convention Centres as well.

10

BUSINESS EVENTS MALAYSIA

Concern: There are no common or standard guidelines for events. Some events require the approval of the fire department whereas other events require the approval of the police. Even the authorities are unable to share their guidelines as they do not have one.

iv) Losing business to international counterparts

ORGANISERS The group, represented by Alun Jones of Malaysian Exhibition Services, expressed the following concerns:

i) Promotions for exhibitions Concern: Local councils need to do more to promote events. For now, organisers are doing almost all the promotions.

ii) Languages on bunting Concerns: Having banners/buntings in Bahasa Malaysia is not necessary especially for foreign events because it is not understood by foreigners attending the event. Also, the rules for the language are not consistent. Some organisers are requested to have it in Bahasa Malaysia while others are allowed to have it in English.

vi) MyCEB Concern: MyCEB provides incentives for organisers to bring in more international businesses. However, the business event industry is still unaware of how MyCEB can help them.

iii) GST Exemption Concern: Foreign exhibitors to Malaysia should be exempted from GST as is done in other countries such as Singapore.

iv) Lack of sizeable venues Concern: Malaysia does not have sufficient sizable venues.

v) Lack of Human Resources Concern: There is a need for increased education and training in business events. It is a challenge for all organisers to find staff and to get young people to join the exhibition industry.

BUSINESS EVENTS MALAYSIA

The industry dialogue proved beneficial to all present. Various issues were brought to the forefront and the panel assured those present that these issues will be highlighted at PEMANDU’s Lab 2.0 as well as other relevant parties. Inconsistencies in certain rules and regulations was a major concern and the panel explained that measures will be taken to flag all inconsistencies to the relevant governmental agencies. Lim Win Nee from MyCEB explained that they want to increase international participations and visitors through international advertising of events in Malaysia. She encouraged industry players to contact MyCEB to see how they can work together.

THE FUTURE OF EXHIBITIONS IN ASIA For quite a while now it’s been a nagging concern that one of the big online companies such as Google or more likely eBay might be tempted by the live events sector. Moreover, with their ability to manipulate their endless data sources, they could pose a real threat to traditional exhibition organisers. UBM Asia is the first organiser to be pro-active enough to turn this threat to their own advantage, tying up an alliance with Chinese e-commerce giant, Alibaba Group.

A WHOLE NEW TRADE EXPERIENCE The starting point was to introduce Alibaba’s B2B business units online via secure transactional platforms and business portals for companies participating in some of UBM Asia trade fairs such as, the Malaysia International Furniture Fair, Finefood Shanghai – part of Hotelex Shanghai and Materials Manufacturing & Technology and Fashion Access in Hong Kong. Cross promotional marketing, match-making services and audience development of the two company’s brands and networks will be another key aspect in working towards the longer term goal of creating the next generation of on and offline trade experiences. It’s a clever move from UBM and it didn’t take long for Hannover Milano Fairs China to follow suit. The tie up between HMF and Alibaba will provide Chinese exhibitors at a number of Deutsche Messe’s shows, including Domotex, CeBIT and Hannover Messe with credit guarantee services,

The main areas for the drop-off were China, Mexico, India and Turkey where the total number of transactions for these four countries dropped from 23 to just 7. The main reasons for the drop for Mexico, India and Turkey were the lack of acquisition targets. The reasons for China are more complex.

The economic slowdown certainly played a part in general nervousness when the CFTC, now operating the new 400,00 m2 Shanghai Hongqiao centre, started competing head to head with some of the bigger international shows such as UBM’s Furniture China. The high price expectations of the independent organisers also derailed some acquisitions. However, looking at the number of deals that are already in process I expect to see an increase in activity in China in 2016. The continuing economic growth in the USA, together with private equity activity, resulted in an increase in the number of transactions. The chart shows the trend in acquisition activity in the USA, China and UK which illustrates what happens when economies turn in different directions.

NEW

KL TOURISM BUREAU The Mayor of Kuala Lumpur, Datuk Seri Mohd Amin Nordin Abd Aziz officially launched the KL Tourism Bureau (KLTB), a rebranding of the Tourism Unit of Kuala Lumpur City Hall.

T

he new KL Tourism Bureau (KLTB) will replace the Tourism Unit of Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL). The Kuala Lumpur Tourism Master Plan 2015-2025 aims to double foreign tourist arrivals and quadruple tourism income from RM19 billion in 2013 to RM79 billion by 2025.

to encourage innovation and allow existing tourism operators and potential investors to identify business ventures within its framework. KLTB’s launch ceremony saw the attendance of Kuala Lumpur mayor Datuk Seri Mohd Amin Nordin Abd Aziz, Tourism and Culture Deputy Minister Datuk Mas Ermieyati Samsudin, Tourism and Culture Ministry secretary-general Tan Sri Ong Hong Peng, and Kuala Lumpur City Hall Socio-Economic Development Executive Director Datuk Normah Malik. The launch


Ø

was held at the once dilapidated Lot 11 building in Jalan Tangsi. It has been refurbished and is now the new Kuala Lumpur Tourism Bureau’s (KLTB) main office. Built in 1903, this historical building was previously utilised as the annexe to the Malaysian Institute of Architects (PAM) office at Lot 10. Prior to that, Lot 11 was known as the Empire Hotel in 1908 until it changed management right after World War II, and was renamed Peninsular Hotel during the 1950s. Consultant architect Azuan said one of the reasons behind the building’s restoration is to “allow the public to appreciate their historical heritage”. KLTB’s advisory board is made up of 15 thought leaders and experts from several key industry sectors with four main functions: focused development of tourism products and infrastructure, providing and facilitating coordinated support to the industry, giving support to various government bodies in the enforcement of industrial regulations, and handling dedicated marketing and promotion for Kuala Lumpur’s tourism. KLTB general manager Noraza Yusof said the initial funding for the bureau amounted to about RM15 million. She said that through KLTB, they were moving from lighter initiatives to medium and heavier initiatives. “As such, we will require support from the private sector in order to succeed,” she added.

MAKE WAY FOR MAKESPACE! If you’re looking for a totally ‘different’ venue for your event, look no further than MAKESPACE.

C

entrally located at Quill City Mall on Jalan Sultan Ismail, Kuala Lumpur, the creators of MAKESPACE wanted to create a venue so unique for those thirsting for something new. “All three founders have a fascination to teach people how to create, so we decided it was very important to have a physical space to conduct our training session and workshops, thus MAKESPACE was born!” says Hakim Albasrawy, Co-founder of Makespace.

TURNING IDEAS INTO REALITY Albasrawy explains that the concept of MAKESPACE taps into the ‘maker culture’ where everyone is able to make cool stuff! “We work with groups to make simple everyday things like t-shirts, tote bags, silk screens and much more. We also teach people to make things that are meaningful and useful for their communities

– recently, having worked with an NGO, building several hundred solar powered lights that are 9 feet tall to light up villages that are off the grid.” MAKESPACE has worked with many companies to create a space of innovation and creation as a team building activity for their employees. He says that this allows for a cool and fun way to inspire and do something new other than the conventional team building activities. “Let’s put it this way, nobody ever felt bad building something with their own two hands!” says Albasrawy, who has a passion for technology and product creation.

A BRAND NEW SPACE! Apart from product creation, MAKESPACE caters to corporate and communities to run workshops, talks, brainstorming sessions, team building, hackathons, performances, parties and they even welcome any new ideas for collaborations. “Basically a blank canvas of space, MAKESPACE can be converted to a space suitable for themed events or meetings,” says Albasrawy. He says that MAKESPACE welcomes event organisers and individuals to use their space for their upcoming events. “In fact, the more creative and innovative the event, the better!” MAKESPACE LAB SDN BHD LG 16, Quill City Mall, Sultan Ismail, 50250 Kuala Lumpur.

The 5,000-capacity venue, the first purpose-built convention centre in Sarawak, is a perfect environment for delegates to forget the outside world and focus on the information sharing taking place inside. Conceived and built with nature and a green theme in mind, the Centre’s structural designs were inspired by the rainforest trees of Borneo with a roof akin to the native ririk leaf. Rainwater is harvested as it flows from the roof’s centre to water the Centre’s tropical garden.

Part ultra-modern, part colonial, Kuching will reward delegates who venture out into its busy streets. Chinese temples, shop-houses from the time of the White Rajahs, a South Indian mosque, stalls selling a variety of Asian cuisines, and a landscaped riverfront park await curious attendees with time to spare between seminars and workshops. For those extending their visit, the city gives easy access to several nature parks and conservation areas, including Bako National Park and the Kuching Wetlands National Park, as well as the Semenggoh Wildlife Centre, which operates an orangutan orphanage and rehabilitation program.

This is expected to create an estimated economic impact of RM970 million. As a destination, Malaysia has much to offer to attract a large portion of the MICE business that comes to this region.
