The Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB) and global consulting, live communication and event management company MCI have teamed up to give back to the community at the Hilton Petaling Jaya.
The event was held concurrent with MCI’s announcement of the opening of its 49th office – MCI Malaysia. The corporate social responsibility activity involved members of the MyCEB and MCI building 30 bicycles along with 15 children from three homes: Agathians Shelter, Rumah Hope and Yayasan Sunbeams Home. The bicycles were presented to the children as a chariable donation after a quality inspection from mechanics.
“Both MyCEB and MCI aim to give back to children in a special way, something they will be happy to receive and at the same time can engage them in healthful and productive activities,” said Ho Yoke Ping, general manager of sales and marketing, MyCEB. “We are glad for the opportunity to collaborate with MCI, to carry out this meaningful activity.”
Officials for the MyCEB plan to continue collaborating with its partners in its social responsibility efforts. The national bureau also conducts the “Let’s Meet & Green” program to encourage conference delegates to offset carbon footprints through tree-planting activities.
The MyCEB was established in 2009 by Malaysia’s Ministry of Tourism & Culture to further strengthen Malaysia’s business tourism brand and position for the international business events market. A non-profit organization, the MyCEB serves as a central hub to assist meeting and event planners to bid for and stage international business events in Malaysia and act as a conduit for national product development. Its goal is to improve its rankings as an international meetings destination within International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) and to grow business tourism arrivals to Malaysia.
