Two congresses will be heading to Kuala Lumpur next year in 2020, the 46th ITA-AITES World Tunnel Congress (WTC) and the International Congress on Infectious Diseases (ICID).
Taking place between May 15-21, 2020, the WTC event will bring together more than 1,500 engineers, designers, and construction professionals to Malaysia, and generate an economic impact of approximately RM 21 million (US$5 million). It will be held at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (the Centre).
The theme of the seven-day event will focus on multiple technical paper presentations, tunnelling training courses, poster presentations, the ITA-AITES General Assembly, technical visits to ongoing tunnelling projects in Malaysia, and interesting exhibitions by companies from all over the world presenting their latest tunnelling solutions, innovations and technologies.
Another conference to be held at the Centre in 2020 is the ICID international congress. Over 3,000 medical professionals from 102 countries are expected to attend ICID 2020, and the event is expected to deliver a RM14.5 million economic boost to the country.
Both congresses are supported by the Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB).
