KUALA LUMPUR - The Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC) have successfully hosted the country's first major business event during the COVID-19 Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO) in a highly-controlled, carefully managed environment with stringent safety and security protocols in place.

The one-day event marked the first milestone of a large-scale gathering of more than 4,500 people in attendance including the Malaysian Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, senior ministers, dignitaries and participants from a non-governmental organisation. 

The event was captured in a video to showcase MITEC’s venue management that is in line with the approved Malaysian National Security Council Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) including health registration with MySejahtera App, mandatory mask-wearing in public areas and social distancing measures.

"We have rigorous health and safety measures, delegate management system, as well as on-site communication including 'mobile human safety reminders' encouraging strict adherence and the provision of guidance and compliance," said Gunther Beissel, Chief Executive Officer, Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre.

Ready-to-eat packed meals were served to each attendee at their respective seats during lunch and AM/PM coffee breaks with pre-wrapped cutlery set to provide a safe and controlled catering system for the wellbeing of attendees and our team members.

"Successful hosting of such mass gathering signals a start to rebuilding public confidence in the meetings and events industry and we are proud to have delivered the event seamlessly within a safe, and structured manner.

We are excited to see Business Events rebound and thrilled to be hosting more major events and exhibitions in a safe, organised, and secure environment in accordance with the SOPs that have been endorsed by the Malaysian Government," concluded Beissel.
