Sarawak Convention Bureau (SCB) will be organising and hosting the first Business Events Tribal Meet 2018 (TriBE 2018) in the state capital, Kuching, from August 23 to 26 this year.
At press time, the venue for the event as well as the list of speakers have not been finalised.
International thought leaders will speak on digital disruptions within the sector – the challenges, the alternative solutions and the impact on the sector and the destination; a subject matter aligned to Sarawak’s vision of a digitalised economy driven by the chief minister of Sarawak, Abang Johari Abang Openg.
It will be a gathering of top-tier sector partners, association decision-markers, academia, corporate organisations, government officials as well as foreign and national media representatives.
TriBE 2018 will also provide a platform for the sector’s expert bodies – ICCA, PCMA and UIA – to share latest insights and best practices.
Also, the biennial Anak Sarawak Award will be given out at the event. The Anak Sarawak Awards is Malaysia’s first award that acknowledges conference hosts, industry members and suppliers for their passion, leadership and commitment in ensuring the success of business events in Sarawak.
TriBE 2018 is a teaser for the TriBE Assembly 2019 which will be formally announced at the event, SCB said in a statement.
