The Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB) recently made an official trip to Jakarta to better develop the business events industry between the two countries.
The gathering included representatives from Indonesia’s Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy, Indonesian Exhibition Companies Association (IECA-Asperapi), Indonesia Convention & Exhibition, Jakarta Convention Centre, Professional Conference Organisers, as well as key opinion leaders from both the public and private sectors.
During the meeting, updates on Malaysia’s latest entry formalities were given, and plans for bureau support to bring in more business events were shared. Discussions are also underway to look into potential projects that both countries can collaborate on to benefit stakeholders and create a larger economic impact.
Abdul Khani Daud, CEO of MyCEB, added that even though Malaysia has vast experience in staging international events, there is “so much more” to be learnt from their Indonesian counterparts who are hosting the G20 Summit this November.
