“Malaysia’s significant breakthrough is reflected by MyCEB’s effort of securing a lineup of 14 Conventions, and 4 Trade Exhibitions to be held just in August 2022 alone. These business events 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,” YB Dato’ Sri Hajah Nancy Shukri, the Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture (MOTAC) Malaysia said in a press release.

“The period in review saw MyCEB providing support towards 18 business events compared to pre-pandemic times, whereby we had a total of 14 conventions and exhibitions in August 2019. This is a strong testament that our industry players are resilient, and the support received from various government agencies are reaping results. We view these positive results as very promising for Malaysia and we hope to continue these efforts to progressively realise our mission,” Dato’ Sri Abdul Khani Daud, Chief Executive Officer of MyCEB added.

Some of the significant events happening in August includes the Malaysian Society of Anesthesiologists & College of Anesthesiologist Annual Scientific Congress, Asia Pacific Glaucoma Congress (APGC), and IPMEX Malaysia 2022. 

Malaysian Society of Anesthesiologists & College of Anesthesiologist Annual Scientific Congress 2022 is a hybrid conference aimed at encouraging international and regional anesthesiologist’s networking, by providing participants with the most up-to-date information on anesthesiologists’ management and to encourage more doctors to choose a career in anesthesia.

Asia Pacific Glaucoma Congress (APGC) 2022 brings together key stakeholders from the Ophthalmology field with a focus on Glaucoma, providing a platform for delegates to collaborate, share experiences, knowledge, and research results about the world’s best practices and recent innovations to help overcome challenges in clinical medicine and surgery.

IPMEX Malaysia 2022 is an event that illustrates the opportunity for the print, paper, label, package, corrugated printing, signage, and advertisement industry professionals to develop a strong network, build collaborations and utilize vital marketing resources for the growth and development of the industry, bringing out the best in digital and print technology.

“I would like to commend MyCEB’s role as the central agency that plays a pivotal part in providing a solid foundation for the recovery of Malaysia’s business events industry post-pandemic, as well as their continuous effort to uplift Malaysia’s standings as the preferred destination for international business events which will generate more business-to-business leads and creates endless opportunities for the country,” YB Dato’ Sri Hajah Nancy Shukri concluded.
