Reviving business events and reshaping them more impactful and sustainable will be a key focus at the Meet in Malaysia @ Malaysia Business Events Week (MIM @ MBEW), which is organised by Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB).

Taking place 29 August – 1 September 2022 at World Trade Centre Kuala Lumpur, the seventh edition of the event – with the theme "Reshaping Business Events" – is expected to attract more than 700 delegates, international speakers and buyers, association executives, industry partners, stakeholders, and media.

Not only will MIM @ MBEW showcase the latest trends, best practices and case studies with a focus on sustainability and digitalisation, it will also promote Malaysia as a global business events destination, highlighting its global connectivity, tourist attractions, state-of-the-art infrastructure and unique hospitality, said Dato Sri Abdul Khani Daud, CEO of MyCEB.

During the event, a Memorandum of Cooperation will be signed between Malaysia and Indonesia's industry stakeholders. "This strategic partnership targets to build a closer relationship with our Asia counterparts based on communality and explore new opportunities to boost the business events market within the region,” he added.
