The Malaysia Convention and Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB) will be hosting its first-ever exclusive press conference during EIBTM 2013. Titled “Malaysia in 2014 and beyond,” the press conference will take place on day two of the exhibition, Nov. 20, at the MyCEB stand, booth number J60.
Presented by MyCEB’s general manager of business events, Ho Yoke Ping, MyCEB will reveal plans for several new venue developments in Malaysia over the next couple of years. These developments include two projects in the state of Penang as well as updates on the KL Metropolis venture. The developments are set to raise Malaysia’s capacity for holding international business events to the next level.
Kicking off the 2014 year, also known as “Visit Malaysia Year” (VMY 2014), MyCEB will update on key events taking place in Malaysia such as Tropfest SEA, the world’s biggest short film festival; the Festival International Sports Extreme World Series 2014 (FISE), which takes place in the historic city of Malacca in September; and the Ironman Triathlon in Putrajaya and Langkawi by April and September, respectively.
An overview of MyCEB’s popular Malaysia Twin Deal Program (MTD) will also be discussed. Forming a part of the VMY 2014 campaign, this overview will showcase a rangle of cultural activities to ensure visitors that they can experience what makes Malaysia a truly rewarding business events destination.
