More Programmes As MyCEB Continues To Nurture Growth Of Industry

MyCEB recently organised two seminar sessions, namely the Best Practice Site Inspections Seminar and the second Researchers Roundtable Session 2012, aimed to groom and nurture the growth of the business events industry in Malaysia.

In its efforts to continuously raise the standard of Malaysia’s business events industry, the Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB) recently organised two seminar sessions for local industry partners, the Best Practice Site Inspections education programme and Researchers Roundtable Session.

Both sessions were highly attended and featured prominent international as well as local key opinion leaders such as Ms Annabel Norris, Director of Sales from the International Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre, Mr Mike Williams, Senior Consultant of Gaining Edge General as well as speakers from the Sarawak Convention Bureau (SCB). Participants involved include Industry Partner Programmes (IPP) members, Professional Conference Organisers (PCOs), Event Management and Destination Management Companies (DMCs) and the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) members.

To ensure participants were fully engaged and gained the best output, the Best Practice Site Inspection education programme provided participants with the opportunity to role-play while conducting an actual site inspection at various venues around Kuala Lumpur. This activity gave insights to attendees of the importance of maintaining high standards in facilities and service management. Due to the positive response of the seminar, it was further brought to the states of Penang, Kota Kinabalu and Kuching. 

At the Researchers Roundtable Session moderated by the prestigious Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, to inspire and motivate local associations to take up the challenges in organising major business events, attendees were given valuable insights by successful organisers.  Professor Dr Mohd Ismail Noor, President of Malaysian Association for the Study of Obesity and Datuk Dr Abd Aziz Yahya, Past President of Obstetrical and Gynaecological Society of Malaysia shared their experiences in international biddings and the management of the events which they had won for the country.
