IAPCO raises RM3000 during council meeting in Kuala Lumpur
The money was raised at the Batik Painting Auction during the IAPCO Council Meeting Gala Dinner, hosted at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre.
The money raised was donated to the Centre’s tree planting initiative, a collaboration with the Forest Research Institute of Malaysia under their Conservation Culture Programme. To-date, the venue has sponsored the planting of over 320 trees.
General manager Alan Pryor said they encourage clients to get involved and leave their own lasting legacy from their time spent in the country.
“We applaud IAPCO’s efforts and are delighted the association is contributing to our tree planting initiative,” he said.
IAPCO vice president Mathias Posch said leaving a positive legacy is something they always aim to do during its events.
“It is a message that lasts, that evokes emotion and improves lives,” he said. “The business events industry has the power to bring change beyond our own industry and outside just one event.”
