The Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB) has reported that 18 international business events will be held in the country in August 2022, a sign of the country’s business events industry bouncing back.
These business events (14 conventions and four trade exhibitions) are expected to bring together close to 24,000 total delegates, which is estimated to generate more than RM56 million in economic impact to the Malaysian economy,” Nancy Shukri, the minister of tourism, arts and culture (MOTAC) Malaysia said in a press release.
Events include the Malaysian Society of Anesthesiologists & College of Anesthesiologist Annual Scientific Congress, Asia Pacific Glaucoma Congress (APGC), and IPMEX Malaysia 2022.
The Malaysian Society of Anesthesiologists & College of Anesthesiologist Annual Scientific Congress 2022 is a hybrid conference which will have networking, provide participants with the most up-to-date information on anesthesiologists’ management, and encourage more doctors to choose a career in anaesthesia.
Meanwhile, APGC 2022 brings together stakeholders from the Ophthalmology field with a focus on glaucoma, providing a platform for delegates to collaborate, and share experiences, knowledge, research results and recent innovations.
Lastly, IPMEX Malaysia 2022 will bring together print, paper, label, package, corrugated printing, signage, and advertisement industry professionals to develop a strong network and collaborate to bring out the best in digital and print technology.
Before the pandemic, Malaysia in August 2019 welcomed a total of 14 conventions and exhibitions.
“This is a strong testament that our industry players are resilient, and the support received from various government agencies is reaping results. We view these positive results as very promising for Malaysia and we hope to continue these efforts to progressively realise our mission,” Abdul Khani Daud, CEO of MyCEB added.
