PRESI DENT’S NOTE Ø

Dear Readers, MACEOS turned 25 and to commemorate the event we celebrated in style with members and business associates with a gala dinner on the 26 October at Nexus Connexion Conference and Event Centre in Bangsar South. However, the highlight of the evening was the Entrepreneurs Award that recognised and celebrated those who have contributed significantly to the growth and expansion of the Malaysian business events industry. The award recipients were chosen based on a few criteria which included an Entrepreneurial Spirit, Financial Performance, Strategic Direction, Community or Industry Impact and Innovation. Winners were then presented with their awards in front of the business events community, cementing their exemplary influence across the Malaysian business events community. A very special thank you to our guest of honour Tan Sri Dr. Ong Hong Peng, secretary general of MOTAC, who graced the event. I would also like to extend my congratulations to all 14 award recipients. Your immeasurable contribution to the industry is very much appreciated. Apart from that, at the recent AGM held on 19 May 2017 at Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, the MACEOS Hard Cover Book was launched in commemoration of 25 years. This publication features all the important milestones that MACEOS has reached through the years through pictures so we can all take a trip down memory lane while enjoying the fruits of our labour as we flip through the pages on how far we have come as an association these past 25 years. We have a lot to be proud of and now we have a book to showcase our DATO’ VINCENT LIM achievements for all to see. It is my hope that all members President, MACEOS keep a copy of the hard cover book as a keepsake for the newer business events generation to enjoy. As for our regular publication, the BE Magazine, a very special thank you to our cover story this issue Y. Bhg. Datuk J. Jayasiri, Secretary General of MITI. Readers will have a better idea on how Malaysia is fast establishing itself as the preferred BE / MICE hub in the Asian region in this one on one interview with Datuk Jayasiri. This issue is also packed with other relevant and interesting industry news and events including the recent MACEOS AGM, MACEOS New Year’s get-together and other relevant and interesting articles. I would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate MyCEB on their recent winning bid to host the UFI Asia Pacific Conference in 2018, also featured in this issue. Another significant milestone the association has reached is the recent establishment of MACEOS Youth headed by Jason Teh of PICO. I look forward to seeing the strides that MACEOS Youth will make as the new generation in the business events industry get their voice. The future is in their hands. 25 years has been quite a journey but I look forward to the years ahead and what they have in store for all of us and the industry we love so dearly. Our continued efforts to work together will in fact help us achieve our desired goals, therefore let us continue on this great journey, here’s to another 25 years! Thank you and Selamat Hari Raya to our Muslim members and readers!

MACEOS recently celebrated its 25 year anniversary and you can read all about how we celebrated it inside this issue of our magazine. It is right and proper that we acknowledge this milestone and the evening was a great way to honour those key people who were instrumental in the beginning and who really piloted the industry during its fledgling years. But we must also look to the future and so I guess it is timely whilst celebrating the past achievements in this issue we also look to the future with the set up of our new MACEOS Youth Chapter and also our sponsorship of the Sunway University Team at the recent AFECA MICE Youth Challenge in Xiamen China. Training and development is critical for our industry to continue to grow and this core activity will always be at the forefront of our association’s aims and objectives for many years to come. Look out for new developments here as we continue to develop our own content and programmes both in exhibitions, conferences and events. Whether it is our partnerships with local universities and colleges or our continual development in formal training programmes, the committee is passionate about helping nurture the new talent needed to take over the reins and propel us forward as an industry. I would also like to echo Dato’ Vincent’s thanks to our cover story Y. Bhg. Datuk J. Jayasiri, Secretary-General of MITI and all who contributed this time around to make this issue a success. See you all in the next issue!

WHY MALAYSIA IS NICE FOR MICE

BE Magazine recently had a one on one chat with Y. Bhg. Datuk Seri J. Jayasiri, Secretary-General of MITI on how Malaysia is gaining a stronger position as the hub of MICE in the region.

The Secretary-General of International Trade and Industry Ministry (MITI) Datuk Seri J. Jayasiri was happy to speak to BE Magazine about the positive direction of the business events industry in Malaysia especially with the completion of the Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC), and how MACEOS can further play a pivotal role in strengthening the industry by working closely with relevant governmental agencies.

Ø ON THE COVER

– Y. Bhg. Datuk Seri J. Jayasiri, Secretary-General of MITI

MITI’S VISION IS TO MAKE MALAYSIA THE PREFERRED INVESTMENT DESTINATION AND AMONG THE MOST GLOBALLY COMPETITIVE TRADING NATIONS BY 2020. ARE YOU ON TRACK? HOW SO? Malaysia’s economic resilience is grounded by lessons learnt from past economic crises and downturns. We are a small and highly open economy, and are not insulated from uncertainties in the external environment. But Malaysia has implemented tough structural reforms, decreased fossil fuel subsidies, instituted financial sector reforms, put in place GST and focused on increasing the economy’s productive capacity. Our focus is on sustainable growth and shared prosperity for all Malaysians as elaborated in our 11th Malaysia Plan. Even as Malaysia stood out as a strategically promising investment destination, the country had undoubtedly gone much further through its close association with the regional grouping of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). As the Chair of ASEAN for 2015, Malaysia had successfully steered the launching of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC), which would reduce investment-related barriers and realise the potential of ASEAN as a fully integrated region for gainful investments. On-going efforts to establish free trade areas within ASEAN and with its neighbours have brought a significant uptrend in foreign direct investments (FDI) and intra-regional investments. Foreign companies and major multi- national companies (MNCs) looking to ASEAN to establish themselves regionally would

undoubtedly enhance Malaysia’s opportunity to become their preferred destination.

THE WHOLE BUSINESS EVENTS INDUSTRY IS EXCITED TO SEE THE NEW DEVELOPMENT OF MITEC COMING ON STREAM SOON. WHAT ARE THE HOPES AND ASPIRATIONS OF MITI WITH REGARDS TO THIS ICONIC NEW VENUE? As one of the largest exhibition the largest exhibition venues in the country as well as in ASEAN and Asia Pacific region, with a gross floor area of 1 million square feet, Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC) will enhance the country’s attraction as a preferred MICE destination in the region and also a catalyst to attract exhibitions from around the world. With MITEC, Kuala Lumpur can play host to various world-renowned events and this will contribute greatly to the economy through trade and tourism trade and tourism. MITEC will further enhance the development of the MICE industry by stimulating domestic market and opening up more opportunities for local players offering a wide array of services such as booth contracting, designing, graphic and printing, freight forwarding, electrical contracting, audio and visual contacting, food and catering, delivery services, security services, facility management, landscaping, parking services system and maintenance etc. The second-tier level players such as hoteliers, transportation, food and beverage outlets, tele-communication provider and others will also benefit from the multiplying impact of MITEC.


Ø

MITI and its agency MATRADE see the development of MITEC as beneficial for the country in terms of exports acceleration, job creation for local people and as a tourist attraction. The opportunities are endless with this latest addition to Malaysia’s iconic facility of International standard.

HOW CAN MACEOS WORK BETTER TO ACHIEVE COMMON GOALS FOR THE BETTERMENT OF THE INDUSTRY? MACEOS, with members comprising the industry players, must work with the government through agencies such as MATRADE that has been tasked to oversee the operation of MITEC, and MyCEB too, who are responsible for the promotion of exhibition and events for Malaysia. Both parties must work together under the principles of public-private partnership and this concerted effort will help Malaysia gain a stronger position as the hub of

MICE in the region. It will give a boost to our services industry and it is in the interest of all related providers to work together to deliver the best services.

HOW DO YOU SEE THE LANDSCAPE FOR THE BUSINESS EVENTS INDUSTRY IN MALAYSIA OVER THE NEXT 5 YEARS? We expect MITEC to be operational soon. Thus far, we have received a number of enquiries, local and International for events to be held at MITEC. Malaysia has some advantages – economic and political stability, excellent accessibility, recognition as a value-formoney destination – and coupled with world-class exhibition facilities (and not forgetting our Malaysian hospitality), we have an edge as the region’s centre for international events. The optimism by industry players and the effectiveness of policy makers offers the world a conducive landscape for business events.

GEARING UP THE YOUTH OF TODAY To ensure outstanding future business events professionals, events like the AFECA MICE Youth Challenge proves to be right on track.

T

he AFECA Asia MICE Youth Challenge 2016 is an international challenge for all students majoring in MICE or Business Events, Business Management, Hospitality and Tourism related fields. The event is organised by The Asian Federation of Exhibition and Convention Associations (AFECA), which has 28 MICE association members and 98 corporate members in over 17 countries /cities. It is a regional organisation representing the MICE industry in Asia. AFECA Asia MICE Youth Challenge 2016 engages competing teams on their knowledge and understanding of the MICE industry as well as promote their respective countries as the ideal MICE destination in Asia.

THE MAIN OBJECTIVES OF THE CHALLENGE ARE:

THE SUNWAY UNIVERSITY TEAM EXPERIENCE AT AFECA, XIAMEN, CHINA 2016 Sunway University students – Mun Quang Hui of the B.Sc. Conventions & Events Management, with Nurul Hidayah, Han Ning and Natassia Gan from the International Hospitality Management – made Malaysia proud by representing the nation to the AFECA Asia MICE Youth Challenge 2016 final rounds in Xiamen, China last November. Natassia Gan said that the insight on the total experience was “an eye-opener for the teams to measure up on each other’s strengths and weaknesses, but ultimately to new friendships blooming and a lifelong lesson in a crucial segment of the business events management!” She added, “For all of us, it was a great feeling to be selected and to be given the golden opportunity to represent Malaysia in AFECA! It was a wonderful experience travelling to Xiamen for AFECA 2016. We flew in earlier to explore Xiamen and frankly, all of us enjoyed the food offered by the locals. Surprisingly, they

The most important thing I learnt at AFECA was the chance to observe and learn from others. It’s not just a venue to bid our business ideas, but it is also an opportunity for us to network with industry people from around the Asia Pacific region”. Another team member, Nurul Hidayah felt that the time and energy spent in the preparation of the bid proposal was nothing compared to the adrenaline boost they experienced during the actual ‘bidding’ day – where participants have to pull off a six-minute killerpresentation. “It was a grand opportunity of a lifetime, for each one of us as we learned so much in a short time within a few months”.

I gained working while being exposed to international standards was invaluable.” Francis explains that he spent his time growing the exhibitions sector for KLCC from 13 exhibitions a year to up to 60 exhibitions a year, a feat he names one of his best career highlights. “I was excited to bring the skills and the experience I had to the Centre, but that being said, the learning never stops and I’ve learned a lot from my time here as well.” The award-winning Setia City Convention Centre is a purpose-built convention centre and boasts a Green Index Building certificate. He says that he took a page from the book of all his career experiences and integrated it at SCCC to be able to run the centre effectively. “At the Centre, my scope of responsibilities is much wider and I oversee the ins and outs of the Centre completely,” he said. However, he attributes the Centre’s success to his dedicated and passionate team. “No convention centre can run as a one man show, the whole team plays a part in making it a success.” Francis also manages Templer’s Ballroom at Setia Eco Templer, Rawang that can accommodate 700 guests in a banquet setting. Although SP Setia is a renowned property developer, today, they have ventured into the hospitality industry with Setia City Convention Centre, Templer’s Ballroom and Setia SPICE under their belt. Francis is also active member and committee member of the Malaysian Association of Convention and Exhibition Organisers and Suppliers (MACEOS).Playing his role as Honorary Secretary, Francis is an active voice for the industry. “I have confidence that this industry will grow even further. I’ve seen this industry grow by leaps and bounds through the years already. With the potential and talent available now, it won’t be long until we achieve more than we ever dreamed we could.”

n any industry, experience and know-how make all the difference. Malaysia’s business events industry has one such individual that can attest to this and it is nonother than Mr Francis Teo, Head of the Setia City Convention Centre (“the Centre”). Francis is a familiar name among industry professionals and apart from his vast experience, his friendly demeanour helps win him the popular vote among the industry greats of today. “I’ve always liked meeting people and making new friends and that’s how I got into this industry to begin with. My first job was with Club Med in Cherating and I met so many different people from many different countries,” Francis explains. He shares that it was most likely his time in Club Med that sealed the deal for him with regards to his career path and ultimately the reason he is where he is today. After his time in Club Med, Francis studied for his Higher Diploma in Hotel Management. “After getting my diploma, I worked at The Concorde in Kuala Lumpur in room and catering sales, and then at the Palace of the Golden Horses in catering sales. I gained a lot from those jobs and put my skills and expertise to use from the early years even today.” Francis first stepped foot into the meetings, incentives, conference and exhibition industry at the Mines International Exhibition & Conference Centre (MIECC). “While working here, I was very involved in exhibitions such as pet fairs, beauty fairs and even golf exhibitions, which was still very new to Malaysia. I enjoyed my time organising events and I realised that it was indeed my forte.” Moving upwards and onwards, Francis then spent some time at the Genting International Convention Centre before his eight years for the internationally renowned Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC). “I was part of the inaugural team and the experience

SETIA CITY CONVENTION CENTRE: THE VENUE WITH A DIFFERENCE Strengthening SP Setia’s value of providing sustainable living, Setia City Convention Centre is the first convention centre in Malaysia to be certified for the Green Building Index (GBI), proving themselves to be a venue with a difference. It combines the best in hospitality with the latest in facilities; it adheres to their fundamental principles of long-term sustainability and the LiveLearnWorkPlay philosophy. “I believe that Setia City Convention Centre has not only created a new venue to choose from but we have created a destination venue, where people go to congregate and to experience the SP Setia lifestyle of LiveLearnWorkPlay.” Nestled within the 240-acre green commercial hub of Setia City in the heart of Shah Alam, lies the Centre. Modern, slick, elegant and absolutely striking in architecture and interior, the Centre has plenty to offer. Besides that, its bold, classy, and(most importantly) comfortable interior design has won it the Persatuan Akitek Malaysia (PAM) Awards 2014 for Excellence in Architecture in the interior design category. Adjacent to the popular Setia City Mall, Setia City Convention Centre offers a comprehensive range of facilities for conferences, meetings, seminars, weddings, performances and more. Not only does it comprise of a grand ballroom with 2,000 seating capacity and 8 function halls, it also boasts a unique green event lawn, overlooking the oval lawn. Also, it is just 40 minutes from the Kuala Lumpur City Centre and Kuala Lumpur International Airport and it is Setia City easily accessible through the New Klang Valley Expressway via the dedicated Setia Alam Interchange.

THE CENTRE’S BRAND NEW HALL 1 AND 2 One of the highlights of Hall 1 and 2 is flexibility – allowing two fully separated, self-sufficient, concurrent events run at the same time! The ability to separate and quarantine events means they can run two self-sufficient conventions, each with their own pre-function area, kitchen for bespoke catering and meeting rooms for breakout or preparation areas. “We wanted to create a space that was basic so that event organisers will be able to use the space to create their own magic, creating something from nothing so that their events can be one-of-a-kind,” says Francis. He also explains that all cable and wiring is hidden underground, and the convenient loading and unloading makes preparing and dismantling for events much easier. “One of the things I feel very strongly about is getting feedback from industry professionals. So for Hall 1 & 2, we had input from at least seven AV suppliers which is where we got the idea to build cable trenches, which in turn, created a more sustainable space.” The brand new hall will encompass individual drop-off areas, VIP holding rooms, registration counter, organiser’s office for each hall and 3 meeting rooms. The hall would be able to accommodate up to 350 booths for exhibitions, 4,000 people in banquet style seating and up to 7,500 people in a theatre style arrangement. “Our team has paid close attention to every detail and we hope to have built a venue that works well for everyone.” As Francis reminisced, one thing was for sure, he was proud of the journey he took to get where he is today. “I’m humbled and honoured to be a part of this industry and I look forward to many more years of watching it grow bigger and even better,” he says.

Ho Yoke Ping, General Manager of Business Events, MyCEB says, “Hosting the 13th UFI Asia Pacific Conference will be an excellent opportunity for us to promote Malaysia and showcase our country given the accelerated pace of infrastructure developments taking place. The event will also provide a platform for our local industry players to engage and learn from experts in the industry as we discuss growth and challenges that impact the exhibition industry.” She adds, “Malaysia has already raised its profile internationally for conventions and meetings and having the UFI Asia Pacific Conference here will further support our goals to expand the exhibition market share, an important segment of our business. Business events have been recognised as one of the key contributors towards Malaysia’s Economic Transformation Programme to reach developed nation status by 2020.”

MACEOS AGM & NETWORKING 2017 Held at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre on Friday, 19 May 2017, members gathers to attend the annual event and ended the evening with drinks overlooking the majestic twin towers. The President of MACEOS Dato’ Vincent Lim addressed the members by thanking them for their continued support and kind cooperation. He also told members that there were significant changes within the association: that they should be proud of such as increased cash flow, permanent staff, and the fact that the second edition of the Road Map had successfully ironed out a direction the association wanted to take in the near future. “Also, moving forward for the year we are very excited to host the BE Forum and rAWr Awards 2017 yet again,” says Dato’ Vincent. Moreover, Dato’ Vincent was very pleased with the launch of the brand new MACEOS Youth led by Jason Teh. “I’m confident that the establishment of MACEOS Youth will help the newer generation have a voice in the industry whilst coming up with creative and innovative input much needed in our industry so we achieve continued success. Later, Honorary Secretary, Francis Teo and Honorary Treasurer W Y Cheong presented their reports respectively.

ore than 250 members of the Malaysian Association of Convention and Exhibition Organisers and Suppliers (MACEOS) and guests celebrated (on a national level) the second anniversary of Global Exhibition Day 2017 and Networking Party at Wisma Goldhill in Kuala Lumpur on June 7th. MACEOS President Dato’ Vincent Lim said that GED, which is now a global annual event, will be held on 7th June. It was also an opportunity for members to network and socialize as well. Some of the guests were also students from universities. The inaugural GED held last year created a real buzz as it not only mobilised hundreds of professionals in the exhibition industry including organisers, associations and service providers, from 60 countries but also promoted the value of exhibition. During the event, Dato’ Vincent and MACEOS Youth President Mr Jason Teh of Pico International (M) jointly unveiled the logo of the newly established Youth Division of MACEOS. Jason said that his priority is to attract and enlist more

young talent into the business events industry. “There are several university students here and it an opportunity for them to get to know more about the Business Events industry. We are targeting those between the ages of 18 and 40 and as a promotional offer for a limited period, we are giving 50 per cent discount on membership fee.” (see page 25 for details on Jason’s vision for MACEOS Youth) GED is an initiative of Parisbased UFI, the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry. MACEOS is a member of this association as well as the Asian Federation of Exhibition & Conventions Associations. According to UFI, over 260 million visitors and 4.4 million exhibitors attend exhibitions each year and international figures show that exhibitions have a high return on investment. About €98 billion are spent by visitors and companies at exhibitions every year. Around half of this total spending benefits the industry directly, while the other half benefits the tourism sector. UFI estimates that around 680,000 full time jobs are created in the exhibition and related industries.

THE EVOLUTION OF LOGISTICS Daniel Mithran, Director of JIM Project & Expo Logistics tells BE Magazine a thing or two about logistics in the business events world.

How and when did you step into your career in logistics? I started my career in the Exhibition Logistics business in 1985 when I was headhunted to be part of a new team as an Operations Manager.

Can you give us some insight into the world of logistics from a business events point of view?

With over 30 years of logistics experience under his belt, Daniel Mithran is well-versed in the changes that logistics has seen in recent times.

26

BUSINESS EVENTS MALAYSIA

In the last 30 years, I’ve seen evolving changes that has resulted in what the Industry is today in South East Asia. For example in the old days, most stand-fitting companies originated from Europe and had all the materials shipped out from there to Asia. However, over the years, Asian standbuilders have peaked in their skills... and now not only build stands for customers in Asia but also Western customers as well – and they ship around the world. Another observation is that in the old days, machinery shows took prominence when the manufacturing industry was growing in Asia. However, now, the focus of large scale exhibitions seems to be in finished

products like furniture, beauty & health care, and consumer goods. The only events that have managed to grow to a large scale are Infrastructure, Defence and Oil & Gas. Another point is the trend of large companies merging in the West and Asia to rationalise economies of scale. This has resulted in the reduction of exhibition freight volumes. For example, in the past 2 companies had 2 products, but since they’ve merged, there is only 1 product. We’ve also started to see a trend of Exhibition Organisers merging or being bought out – resulting in fewer players compared to a few decades back.

What are some of the most prominent challenges you face in your industry? Threats of terrorism have resulted in more tedious and difficult procedures in the importing and exporting of goods. This has caused every country in the world to implement their own prevention and control methods (with compliance being mandatory). Even airlines and shipping companies have implemented their own acceptance procedures that


Ă˜

has cost Exhibition Forwarders loads of additional work just to move exhibition freight on time.

What are your thoughts on how to overcome these challenges? These particular challenges are beyond our control. Until the world calms down and starts to trust in mankind again, all we can do is educate our personnel in complying with the procedures, find simpler solutions to the required paperwork, establish a rapport of trust with the airlines and shipping companies and build a stellar track record with all government agencies so there is a better level of trust.

How has being a member of MACEOS benefitted you and JIM Project & Expo Logistics? Having been a member of MACEOS for 26 years, I can say that this organization is the collective voice of the Industry. It has built a platform for us to deal with issues relating to our trade and works as a bridge between members and the government.

SIX TIMES LUCKY! Berjaya UCH Students Took Home Multiple Accolades At the Taiwan 2016 MICE Destination Marketing Contest.

A

t the recent TAIWAN 2016 MICE Destination Marketing Contest in Taipei, Taiwan, students of the School of Tourism from BERJAYA University College of Hospitality impressed the judges with their innovative ideas and grabbed six awards and emerged as the Overall Champion. Five students; Yap Choy Ying, Chee Cheng Yee, Yip Sze Yuen, Nicole Yo Anqi, Yap Meng Chun and Lim Wei Kang, all from the Events Management programme, together with Mr. Jaston Ng, their lecturer, flew to Taipei to participate in this prestigious yearly contest. The event was organised by the Taiwan External Trade Development Council and was held at the world-renowned Taipei International Convention Centre (TICC). A total of 20 universities from Singapore, Thailand, India, China, Vietnam, Macau, Hong Kong and Taiwan participated in this contest. However, BERJAYA University College

of Hospitality was the only institution representing Malaysia.

THE BEST PITCH The judging of the contest was based on the Marketing Plan of the MICE destination of choice, Creativity of presentation, Unique design of the booth and finally, Reception which includes innovative and interactive activities conducted at the respective booths. The students were focused on beating last year’s bronze medal and never expected to take home so many awards in the end which has never before been seen. “We were so thrilled when the final results were announced and we were awarded first prizes in Marketing Plan, Theme Creativity, Booth Design, Reception and the Overall Champion. To us as a team, this is by far the best achievement anyone of us could expect and is an exemplary of great teamwork and hard work. To be recognized at an international

level is just beyond our expectation. We are very grateful for the relentless support we received from our dedicated lecturers especially, Mr. Jaston Ng,” the students shared. The competition was fierce and the ability to shine amongst the best and to be the best has made BERJAYA University College extremely proud of its students. All sweat and tears during preparation have come to fruition.

THE WINNING THEME The winning theme of BERJAYA University College team was Be Sarawak, B.E (Business Event) Destination. Sarawak, also known as ‘Land of the Hornbills’, was chosen as the B.E destination due to its beautiful indigenous culture and vast untouched nature. At the booth, students wore traditional Sarawakian costumes to present exciting B.E programme that they designed to a panel of 8 judges made up of academics as well as professionals working in the industry. “It is the best form of learning – to be able to experience the stress of the preparation, the nervousness of the presentation in front of judges and the proud moment of being declared the overall champion is something we will cherish for the rest of our lives.” This sentiment was shared by all the students who participated in this competition.

A continuous focus on delivering an even more efficient platform remains a driving force within the event. As Malaysia is the gateway to the burgeoning Asean region, ARCHIDEX remains committed to taking our exhibitors beyond borders to the future.

The Malaysian construction sector in itself remains the fastest growing economic sector in 2015 with a GDP growth noted at 8.2% year-on-year. The 10th Malaysia Plan drew to a close in 2015 with the construction sector charting a solid compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11% in the fiveyear period. Under the 11th Malaysia Plan (2016-2020), some RM260bil of development expenditure represents a 16% increase from the previous plan, which bodes well for the growth trajectory of the construction industry (The Star).
