Since the comeback of Malaysia Business Events Week in August, conferences and exhibitions have been growing in scale and size in the country.

Returning to Malaysian shores this year is OGA x MOGSEC 2022, a combination of the biennial 6th Malaysia Oil & Gas Services Exhibition and Conference (MOGSEC) and the biennial 18th Oil and Gas Asia (OGA).

The merged tradeshow took place from 13 – 15 September 2022 at Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, welcoming over 500 participating companies from over 25 countries, eight international country pavilions and 20,000 trade and professional attendees.

Alongside OGA x MOGSEC 2022, there was also Petrochemicals Sustainability Conference 2022 by the Malaysian Petrochemicals Association which brought together petrochemical producers, consumers, and stakeholders to discuss the pathways by which Malaysian and regional petrochemicals companies come together to support global net-zero solutions.

Elsewhere in the country, Penang will be hosting its biggest event of the year when the V-Convention Malaysia by V Global returns to destination from 7-11 October 2022.

The five-day event will see a series of motivational speeches, product, and services training, a trade exhibition as well as a corporate conference happening simultaneously at Setia SPICE Convention Centre. Some 13,000 delegates from 50 countries are expected to attend the event, with a projected economic impact of RM157 million (US$34.6 million).

This mega convention, which has been taking place in Penang since 2008, will be a strong vote of confidence for Penang as an incentive and tourism destination in Asia, said the organisers.
